Macedonia Case of Bloody Thursday-No clue on masterminds
August 24, 2018 | Brainwave Science
One year after what has been described by reports as Storming of the Macedonian Parliament (also known as Bloody Thursday), that left more than 100 people wounded but still not covered the participants who planned this action. As the trial of 30 people accused of participating in the violent storming of Macedonia’s parliament in 2017 continues, the Prosecution and Interior Ministry say they are still seeking the possible masterminds behind the attack.
Politically motivated protests became violent and received severe criticism from the Western diplomats who expressed concern that authorities failed to prevent the attack and did not provide the necessary security for the lawmakers and journalists present at parliament.
After over a year of the attack, Macedonian police still says that “Further investigations into last year’s mob attack on Macedonian parliament may yet uncover who planned and directed the rampage that left almost 100 people wounded, the prosecution and the police say.”
Macedonian prosecutors have filed charges against 30 people, including a former interior minister and several opposition lawmakers, for their alleged involvement in the storming of parliament by demonstrators nearly a year ago. National Security, radical extremism, violence and underfunded Police departments are some of the reasons that underline the threat to security in Macedonia as well as the Balkans. European Union has seen many challenges to incorporate the Balkans into EU. Recent reports highlight that Europe is facing a potential crisis in the Balkans.
This is what’s at play today in the western Balkans, where the EU’s capacity to think and act as a geopolitical player is being severely put to the test. In early 2018, the EU presented its new western Balkans strategy. Its stated aim is to encourage reform in Serbia, Montenegro, Bosnia-Herzegovina, Kosovo, Macedonia and Albania, by renewing the prospect of membership. Will the situation of law and order in the Balkans improve or will the governments be destabilized by outside forces? National Security is a challenge for most Balkan countries including Macedonia along with corruption, abuse of power and radical extremism from neighbors in Albania.
