Kumanovo Court will rule on Monday in wiretapping case against Zaev

Kumanovo Court will rule on Monday in wiretapping case against Zaev

Kumanovo, 17 February 2017 (MIA) - The Court in Kumanovo is expected to rule on Monday in the case against SDSM party leader Zoran Zaev and local SDSM leader Martin Kostovski, initiated by former SDSM official Viktor Cvetkovski. Cvetkovski sued Zaev and Kostovski for publishing the recording of a phone conversation he had with former Interior Minister Gordana Jankuloska.

Cvetkovski's lawyer Zvonko Bogdan called on the court to issue against the defendants, saying that the law prohibits the unlawful recording and reproduction of private phone conversations. The audio tape was one of the hundreds of recordings which Zaev and his party made public during the wiretapping affair in 2015. According to Bogdan, the defendants practically admitted their guilt in the statement given by their legal representative, SDSM deputy leader Damjan Manchevski.

"I filed this charge in order to put an end to the abuse of wiretaps by individuals and to show them that this practice must end. We are a country that aspires to European Union membership and for that we need to respect the law and the basic human rights", Cvetkovski said before the court.

Zaev's lawyer Miroslav Vuic asked that the judge rules in the favor of his client saying that he considers the case a political trial. Vuic added that the decision to publish the wiretaps was reached by the entire leadership of the SDSM party in order to reveal what the party claims is abuse on the part of the Government. Vuic also called Cvetkovski a public figure who have his conversations out in the public.cc/14:49
