“Coup” case hearing postponed

Friday’s hearing in case “Coup” in the Criminal Court has been postponed until November 1 due to the absence of a juror.


Special Prosecutor Katica Janeva voiced dissatisfaction from the postponement.

“The court is to blame for the delay. I reacted to the postponement since this is a case of urgent nature and the defendants are under precautionary measures and suffer limitations to their freedom”, said Janeva.

The Prosecutor’s Office for Organized Crime and Corruption opened the “Coup” case, which was later taken over by the Special Prosecutor’s Office because of its link to the illegal wiretapping. The case involves opposition leader Zoran Zaev and other individuals charged with espionage, illegal surveillance and violence against top state officials.
