In the Bulgarian newspaper, Capital, Nikola Dimitrov addressed the ongoing protests in Macedonia which erupted last week after President Ivanov halted investigations against 56 politicians implicated in alleged corruption, electoral fraud and abuse of office.
“The battle between the citizens who demand accountability and the rule of law, and the regime that wants impunity is a battle for European values in Macedonia. The country is decidedly beyond the point where stability is possible without the rule of law and accountability. There is a need for urgent international engagement.”
