Officials must Swear Before A Notary That They Werent Police Spies

MACEDONIA  Notaries in this former province of communist Yugoslavia have been tasked with administering oaths to all members of the government and civil service  as well as those in key private positions  as part of a new law designed to root out former police spies and officials who could undermine democratic institutions. Specifically, the identified officials have to swear before a Notary that they were neither members of, nor informants, for the now-defunct secret police. Those caught lying about their affiliations could face a stiff prison sentence.
