UN High Commission for Human Rights  has expressed its deep concern today about the political crisis in FYR Macedonia and its impact on human rights.

The Commission’s spokeswoman, Cecil Pouilly said today that the High Commission has expressed its concern “about the content of registered conversations, that incriminate senior representatives of the state for a number of violations of human rights, including electoral fraud, abuse, pressure against the judicial system and media and eavesdropping”.

The High Commission is also concerned about the accusations launched against the leader of Macedonian opposition, Zoran Zaev for espionage.

“We call on authorities to launch a prompt, independent and unbiased investigation for all claims for violation of the law that have been made, regardless of their source”, Pouilly said, demanding from authorities to seek responsibility from everyone, in order for the investigation to reveal if the law has been violated along with human rights.

The Geneva based High Commission also calls on political parties to engage in talks for the solution of the political crisis. /ibna/
