Albanian Activists Condemn ‘Terrorist’ Murder Verdict in Macedonia

Categories: Albania, Macedonia, Breaking News, Ethnicity & Race, International Relations, Law

Balkan Insight reports [1] that an ethnic Albanian NGO in Macedonia has condemned a recent court verdict convicting six Albanian men for the execution-style murder of five ethnic Macedonians on Christian Orthodox Easter in 2012.

The NGO claims that the entire investigation and verdict were politically-motivated and set against the six accused men from the beginning, leaving little to no room for other suspects or a more in-depth investigation. The six men stood trial for terrorism and were sentenced to the longest possible prison term for terrorism in Macedonia – life in prison.

Balkan Insight previously reported [2] on the murders and the jailing of the six accused men.
