Another was the case codenamed "Extortion" which, ironically, landed one of her colleagues, Katica Janeva, in jail, and spelled the demise of the institution that Janeva had led, the Special Prosecution, SJO - previously admired as the herald of change in the judiciary and which had been expected to wage an uncompromising fight against top-level corruption.
North Macedonian law enforcement has placed the businessman Orce Kamcev in 30 days' detention in Shutka prison near Skopje, on the request of the Organised Crime Prosecution, which said there was a risk he might flee the country.
The prosecution on Sunday said it requested his detention after receiving "info from the National Security Agency that he might be preparing an escape".
The two defendants claim they are victims of a masterful operation to discredit the Special Prosecution, SJO, which Janeva once headed, and rescue those that the SJO had once prosecuted.
The prosecution, on the other hand, claim that Jovanovski, aka "Boki 13", and Janeva, had been greedy to get hold of the money of one of the wealthiest people in the country.
The 'Extortion' scandal has rocked the government of Social Democrat Prime Minister Zoran Zaev and undermined the credibility of the country's anti-corruption drive.
It erupted in July when businessman Bojan Jovanovski and alleged accomplice Zoran Milevski were arrested on suspicion of extorting money from another businessman, Orce Kamcev.
The parliamentary commission in North Macedonia on appointments and dismissals at Thursday's closed session unanimously supported the dismissal of the suspended chief of the Special Prosecution, Katica Janeva, who has been detained in relation to the "Extortion" scandal. All 13 MP members of the commission voted for her dismissal.
