“Although I am worried every time a judiciary officials is under criminal or disciplinary action, I also feel satisfaction over the fact that it is an indicator of the functioning of the judiciary in terms of commitment to confront and resolve the deviations in the judiciary institutions, which undoubtedly exist and which we must not ignore,” Milan Tegeltija told Fena news agency.
