Protests in Macedonia after the wire-tapping scandal, continue. Apart from Skopje, which is protesting the last three days, demonstrations are expected in nine other cities of the country: Bitola, Prilep, Strumica, Kavadar, Kumanovo, Ohrid, Stip and Sveti Nikole.

The last "bombs" of SDSM involved the murder of the young boy Martin Neshkovski and the truth about journalist Nikola Mladenov. Thousands of people have chosen to take the streets in response to government policies and to PM Gruevski. Protests are expected to start at 18.00.

Today The Head of the OSCE Mission to Skopje, Ambassador Ralf Breth, expressed concerns over yesterdayís protests in front of the government building in Skopje.

"The right to peacefully gather and protest is a constitutionally guaranteed right of all citizens in the country. However, such protests should not be marred by violence," said Breth.

"Each citizen should be able to freely express their opinion and should do so in a peaceful and responsible manner and the security forces should be able to do their job and ensure that public order and safety are maintained. However, the police should act in a professional and appropriate manner, with full respect for the individual rights of the participants in the protest," he added.

"I call on the authorities and political actors, as well as citizens, to act responsibly and to refrain from violence," said Breth. /
