01.07.2011 Analysis of the cases “Published listings for the elections” and “Arresting of Ljube Boshkovski” on the basis of publicly available information

Are the experiences in the functioning of the legal order in the cases of Zoran Thaler and Helmut Kohl  applicable in the circumstances when it comes to applying a law in the legal practice in the Republic of Macedonia?

Laws exist, institutions as well. In practice there are no cases where that will undoubtly convince the public in the Republic of Macedonia, as well as the international community, in readiness for action and clear withdrawal of the parallels. Or perhaps we should first experience a case like “Ivo Sanader”
As before, the subject of the analyses in the project “Believe it or not” is how the state authorities and institutions work, specifically their treatment when taking measures in the cases which are related with corruption.

Illegalities in the Financing of Political Parties Print E-mail
 press21012010.jpg21.01.2011 Transparency Zero Corruption on the press conference “Believe it or Not” presented three initiatives, which will be submitted to the Constitutional Court of the Republic of Macedonia. The initiatives are impugning the constitutionality and legality of the Directive for distribution of assets from the Budget of RM for annual financing of political parties, regardless the fact that financing of political parties from the Budget of RM introduced in 2004 has been considered to be an anticorruption measure for decreasing corruption in politics.
After six years, effective control over financing political parties by relevant state bodies has not been established. Namely, political parties do not publish and deliver their financial reports to the State Audit Office in a timely manner and regulation and distribution of budgetary assets is absolutely nontransparent and contrary to the Constitution of RM.

bornotpress.jpg 17.12.2010 Transparency Zero Corruption has held a press conference to present the anomalies in the fight against corruption titled “Believe it or not”. The events which were presented are based on results of the organization’s performance together with the complaints that were received from the citizens for the situation in the fight against corruption and criminal, as well as the situation with transparency in the society.
TZC believes that the fight against corruption, which is leaded by the competent authorities in the Republic of Macedonia, is increasingly getting the character of a farce, behind which corruption and participants in corrupt activities are hiding.
