OSMANI: WE HAVE TO WORK CONTINUOUSLY AND TAKE CARE OF THE STABILE INTERETHNIC RELATIONS
Minister in charge of European Affairs, Bujar Osmani, had a meeting with the
head of the OSCE Mission to Skopje, Ambassador Clemens Koja, where they
exchanged information and positions on a number of current topics.
incident with the intrusion in the Islamic Religious Community is a shameful
act that endangers the country's secularity and the constitutionally guaranteed
autonomy of the religious communities in the Republic of North Macedonia, and I
expect from the Government and other institutions to take actions that will
protect the independence of the IRC", Osmani stated, pointing out that
such incidents would certainly have a negative impact on the stable inter
ethnic relations, which are the result of long years of hard work and careful
behaviour. "At the moment, interethnic relations are stable and solid, and
we are especially proud of that, but it is not something that should be taken
for granted, but on the contrary, we must actively work on their
maintenance", Osmani stressed.
Osmani and Koja discussed the possibilities for implementation of the project
for statistical and qualitative analysis of court decisions, which would
determine the objectivity of the judgements according to the ethnicity of the
accused, as a metrical way for determining the objectivity and non-selectivity
in the work of the courts. The project envisages expert statistical analysis,
where the subject of processing would be the same and similar cases of charges,
which would analyse the amount of judgements and their statistical correlation
according to the ethnicity of the defendants. These projects have been
extremely successful in determining the possible inclinations and subjectivism
of judicial societies in contemporary societies as a basis for addressing these
issues objectively and without prejudice.
In the end,
Osmani and Koja expressed their satisfaction with the way in which the first
round of elections was organised and conducted, expressing the expectation that
this success will be repeated in the second round, with which the elections
will fully reflect the democratic and political maturity of the country.
