5 judges, 4 prison doctors charged with allowing a killer to avoid jail time


The Public Prosecutor’s office from Prilep informs that they have received charges from the Interior Ministry against four judges from the Prilep Court and four prison doctors from Bitola and Skopje, all charged with allowing a person sentenced to over 10 years of jail time for murder to avoid serving his sentence.

The doctors and the judges are charged with preparing false medical reports about the prisoner, who was sentenced for killing a 29 year old man in 2006 over a loan. The judges and prison doctors are charged that between 2012 and 2014 they allowed the prisoner to stop serving his sentence, ostensibly to seek treatment, and eventually to stop serving the sentence completely. The group is charged of violating the law for serving sentences.
