On the occasion of December 10th, the International Human Rights Day, the President of the Republic of Macedonia, Dr. Gjorge Ivanov received representatives of the Association of politically persecuted, imprisoned and convicted citizens for the independence of the Macedonian people and its statehood. At the meeting, the representatives of the Association briefed President Ivanov on the current state of affairs concerning those persons, who, in the previous system, were arrested and persecuted for political reasons, as well as on the current state of affairs of their families. According to Nikola Andonov, coordinator of the Association, the families of those who were politically persecuted are still living with the consequences deriving from the violation of their fundamental human rights. The representatives of the Association presented several examples of people whose lives were severely disturbed because of their political views, beliefs and activities, as well as their ethnic or religious affiliation.

President Ivanov committed himself to provide his contribution to a better understanding of the effects of the systematic human rights abuses, as a necessary step towards building a democratic and free political system. President Ivanov announced the implementation of planned legislation to guarantee the status of politically persecuted persons. According to the President, it is necessary to correct the past injustices for the process of reconciliation and unity of the society.
