Macedonia, Former Yugoslav Republic of - OPCAT Situation
Macedonia ratified the OPCAT in 2009 and made a declaration under Article 17 on the structure of the NPM. The Ombudsperson’s Office was designated as NPM and, although it has not been implemented in practice, formal cooperation with civil society organisations was encouraged in the declaration.
The NPM became operational in 2011 and a specific NPM department was established, with dedicated staff.
The SPT member Milos Jankovic is the SPT Focal Point for Macedonia.
