Public Prosecution Charges 'the People', But not Coup Plotters!?
Monday, 01 May 2017

The Ministry of Interior (MoI) has thus far brought criminal charges against 15 people involved in the developments at Macedonia's Parliament on 27 April. Five of them have been detained, MoI said in a press release on Sunday. 

The charges are based on the 'reasonable suspicion' of participation in a crowd, which prevents an official person to perform an official act and 'participation in a crowd which commits a crime' - Articles 384 and 385 of Macedonia's Criminal Code.

MoI in cooperation with the Public Prosecutor's Office will keep working on identification of other persons in the 27 April events at the Parliament, the press release reads.

No word whether charges are being planned for coup plotters who played a foreign national anthem in Macedonian Parliament and initiated the incident in the first place.
