Fresh protests rock Macedonia as outrage grows over wiretap pardons

Protesters clash with anti-riot police officers in Skopje on April 13, 2016Thousands took to the streets of the Macedonian capital for a third consecutive evening Thursday to protest against the president’s shock decision to halt probes into more than 50 public figures embroiled in a wire-tapping scandal. The demonstrators, many of them supporters of the main opposition SDSM party, whistled and chanted “Resignation!”, “No justice, no peace!” an AFP reporter at the scene said. Similar anti-government protests in the capital had turned violent on Wednesday, when demonstrators ransacked the offices used by President Gjorge Ivanov’s team and set fire to the furniture.
