Greece’s highest court has made a decision, no extradition of former Interior Ministry officials Goran Gruojvski and Nikola Boskovski because in Macedonia they will not be able to receive a fair trial, Alfa reports.
The court in Athens will respond negatively to the request of Zaev’s justice ministry to extradite the two officials who found refuge in Greece after the coup. The suspects’ lawyer, Petar Vasilev, said in a statement to Alfa TV that he welcomed the objective decision of the highest judicial body in Greece, pointing out that the court there unlike in Macedonia is making decisions based on following the law.
The court in Athens stated that it can not decide on people who were previously amnestied. It is about the amnesty that President Gjorge Ivanov made two years ago. The court has ruled that once an amnesty decision has been taken, it can not be withdrawn.
For Goran Grujevski and Nikola Boshkovski, proceedings are being brought before the Skopje Court on charges of the illegal SPO for their alleged involvement in illegal wiretapping.
