SKOPJE, Sept. 15 (Xinhua) -- North Macedonia's chief prosecutor of the Special Prosecutor's Office (SPO) Katica Janeva has been dismissed over suspected abuse of power after a parliamentary session vote, local media reported on Sunday.
A total of 102 lawmakers in the 120-member parliament voted to remove Janeva from her post on Saturday night.
The chief prosecutor was detained on Aug. 21 on suspicion of abuse of power to pursue personal gain. According to the state prosecutor office, she is suspected of offering forgiveness "to a businessman" in exchange for money.
