EU urges Skopje to make spy dossiers available

European Parliament report is likely to recommend making dossiers of former police informants available to the public – a move the authorities are already considering.

The draft European Parliament Report on Macedonia, set to be put to a vote in mid-March, will urge the country’s lustration commission “to communicate its findings directly to the public and transfer all necessary documents on a permanent basis to the Commission’s premises”.

Following the practice of many former Communist countries, Macedonia adopted a Lustration Law in 2008 aimed at rectifying injustices from the Communist era, when people were tried and jailed based on information from police informants.
