    Macedonia’s civil society stands up against police brutality0

    June 5th, 2011 in Skopje, Macedonia: 23 year-old Martin Neskovski was beaten to death by an officer of the special police forces during the celebration after the election victory of VMRO-DPMNE, Macedonia’s ruling political party. Eyewitnesses confirmed seeing a police officer brutally beating the boy and dragging the body away from the crowd. In its initial reports during the two days following the boy’s death, the Ministry of Interior stated that there were no signs of violence on the victim’s body. The event immediately triggered series of peaceful street protests by thousands of young people in Macedonia and eventually lead to the conviction of one police officer.
