Justice and Defence
The Macedonian Truth Organisation (MTO Inc.) has expressed its deep concern about the ruling party in the Macedonian Government, VMRO-DPMNE, for continuing its coalition with the Democratic Union for Integration (DUI), formally known as the National Liberation Army (NLA). During the 2001 conflict, the NLA committed terrorist acts against the Macedonian state and its civilians, posing a great threat to Macedonian sovereignty, and a number of its members are now high-profile political figures in DUI.
Consequently, the MTO Inc. is appalled at the recent decision to award DUI with the positions of Ministers for Justice and Defence, and the decision to grant amnesty to war criminals. With this move, VMRO-DPMNE has ensured that these war crimes and terror suspects will never face justice. VMRO-DPMNE has also demonstrated a complete lack of regard for the Macedonians who lost their lives during the conflict, and for their grieving family members who’s concerns have remained unaddressed.
These treacherous policies merely serve to highlight the incompetence on the part of VMRO-DPMNE, who have entrusted the defence of the Macedonian state to a group that attempted to destroy it through armed force only a decade ago. The MTO Inc. strongly urges the ruling Macedonian party to end its coalition with DUI and remove its members from positions of public trust.
The MTO Inc. opposes the Framework Agreement and the consequent actions that have resulted from its implementation, which are detrimental to Macedonian sovereignty. The MTO Inc. calls upon the Macedonian Government to replace the Framework Agreement together with its associated constitutional provisions and statutory legislation, with models based on international best-practice, which will restore Macedonia as a Macedonian state guaranteeing the natural rights and responsibilities of all citizens.
