Abstract

This paper is the second paper resulting from the scientific research project:" The role and significance of the State Attorney’s Office in the judicial system of the Republic of Macedonia"1 conducted by the authors as researchers. This project and the purpose of its research has special significance because it is a state body that in our country, according to the findings of the research team of this project, has not been researched on scientific level and represents a neglected segment in the entire judicial system, rather than having central place in it. While the first paper presents the historical development of the State’s Attorney Office in the legal system of the Republic of Macedonia, this second paper is committed to presenting the data resulting from three different research activities. Firstly, the paper aims to present the results of analyze of the annual reports in certain period of the work and success in resolving cases of this state body. The second research activity was conducting a survey among the citizens in the eastern region of Republic of Macedonia2 in order to collect data about the perception and the knowledge that citizens have regarding this important state body, as well as to analyze the existing communication between the State’s Attorney Office and the citizens in matters of protecting property interests of the state. The third activity was conducting an interview with the representatives of the State’s Attorney Office in the eastern region of Republic of Macedonia. The request for interview was send to representatives of the State’s Attorney Office - the State Attorneys acting in Shtip, Kocani, Strumica and Veles. The research team has received only one official response from the State’s Attorney Office representative in Kocani, which was negative3. Due to this negative answer as well as the incontactability and the silence of the other representatives of the State’s Attorney Office, unfortunately we were not able to conduct this research activity. On the other hand, the conduct of the representatives in this matter is considered a solid ground for making conclusions, which will be presented in the concluding remarks. All of the three research activities together aimed to reach findings and conclusions as to what extent the State’s Attorney Office is the appropriate mechanism to protect state interests and at what level are the possibilities of the State Attorney in terms of its function to provide this adequate protection of the property interests of the state. The answer to these questions alone should answer the question whether there is need for reorganization, strengthening the role and increasing the quality of work of the State’s Attorney Office of the Republic Macedonia.
