Freedom House: FYROMacedonia continues the decline

Filed under: General — May 19, 2013 @ 6:17 pm

In the latest Freedom House report on the freedom of the press, FYROMacedonia, after last year’s drastic fall of 19 places, continues the decline and now marks a fall of additional 5 places in the rankings, which sets it even further away from all other countries in the region, including Kosovo, Albania and Bosnia, with whom it shared the same place until recently, but now is found 24 places below them.

In its reports, as most acute problems Freedom House names, in the following order: the corruption of the judiciary, the lack of freedom of the media and having no religious freedoms.

In the part about the religious freedoms, in all its reports, without exceptions, there is a mention of the problem of, as it is said, the breakaway Macedonian Orthodox Church with the canonically recognized Orthodox Ohrid Archbishopric.

Like in the other reports of the international community about the situation of the freedoms and human rights in FYROMacedonia, it is characteristic that the Constitution and the laws ensure the freedoms, but that is not being respected in practice. All this is undoubtedly indicating the religious persecution of the Orthodox Ohrid Archbishopric which is performed exactly through the violation of the guaranteed rights and freedoms of the citizens members of the Orthodox Ohrid Archbishopric.
