Warm home for mother and five children from the Mayor of Kavadarci

The young single mother Sabina from Vatasa, Kavadarci, and her five young children will spend the winter in a cramped home, where the bulbs will light up again after a long time.

In her dilapidated little house, she will not have to worry about surviving the cold months to come, as the new chapter in their lives begins today.

Namely, the woman who lives on the assistance of a third child and from occasional diaries she earns by cleaning houses in Kavadarci, met with the mayor Mitko Jancev at his request, who after seeing the conditions of the family survives, without hesitation offered his help.

They will renovate their home, make them a decent place to live, get a new bathroom, kitchen, new electricity meter, all debts will be paid off.

We will also provide all the household appliances, a laundry machine, a stove, a refrigerator, all that is needed to operate normally - the mayor said.

History of the Roma Traditional Courts

Kris (Romani: kris) or Kris-Romani is a traditional court for conflict resolution in the culture of Vlax branch of the Romani people. The term derives from the Greek language, "κρίση" (judgment). It is a key institution for enforcing the Romani Code (Romani: romano zakono; zakonuri) within Romanipen.
It developed in the area of present-day Romania, during the times of the slavery, as a judicial institution of the local Romanies, in order to enforce the community cohesion and its internal balance. After the abolition, from the half of the 19th century onwards, many Vlax Romanies emigrated in the rest of the world, bringing with them the kris as part of their cultural luggage.
More or less formal proceedings exist also among other Romani branches. Some non-Vlax Romanies adopted this institution, like the Drzara from Sweden (originally from Serbia), in contact with the local Kalderash.
The kris covers issues involving only Romani parties, since those involving also non-Romani parties are dealt by non-Romani institutions. In the Romani dispute resolution, it is used as the last resort. Many unsettled issues (if their gravity would not require a kris obviously from the start) are dealt informally through involvement of other members from the local communities.
This may take the shape of a divano, an informal gathering of clan leaders of the conflicting parties and other local influential and respected Romanies (the presence of the parties themselves is optional). If they consider a certain settlement possible, this amounts only to a recommendation. If the parties still do not agree and the issue remains unsettled, the kris is convened as the formal instrument for the dispute resolutions.
Although customs vary according to local tradition, the basic form of the kris involves the conflicting parties making their appeals to the krisnitorya (singular: krisnitori, also in other variants, krisnatory, krisari, krisatore), respected Romanies appointed by communal acclamation to preside over the kris.
The number of krisnitorya is odd, usually between five and eleven. Other members of the group not directly involved in the conflict may participate by presenting their own statements on the nature of the conflict, or on the character of the involved parties.
The debates are kept only in Romani language, with a legal register, otherwise unused in the daily speech. In order to enforce the veracity of the communication, various oaths are taken in the name of the ancestors (Romani: mule) or other culturally powerful images.
The judgements of the kris are designed to maintain the integrity of the Romani community and uphold the Romanipen. Its proceedings are oriented to reinforce the kintala (balance), an important notion of the Romanipen. Considering that there is no absolute truth (as a shame society, in contrast with the usually local non-Romani guilt societies) and each party has its own truth, the krisnitorya seek mainly to restore the mutual respect between the involved parties. Their final decisions should consider a future harmony, since, according to its success and durability in time, the Romani community will consider whether they keep being qualified krisnitorya. If it is concluded that an imbalance happened and its nature and gravity make very difficult restoring the balance with reconciliation, then reparations and punishments are also considered.
These may range from fines (Romani: glaba) paid by the guilty to the injured party, to the guilty party being declared marime ('unclean') for a period of time, and banished (Romani: shudine/chhudine) from the community. The period of time may be fixed, or until the guilty will pay the fine or will restore a former status quo. The most extreme sentence is for a Romani person to be declared marime for all time, and thus permanently excluded from the Romani community, a horrific fate amongst the Roma. In former times, the death sentence was also a possible punishment in some Romani groups, although it is not known to have been practiced for a very long time. If all parties are found guilty and fines are paid, usually these are given to the poor Romanies.
Also the punishment may include unpaid work for the local Romani community. The injured party, also in order to reinforce the balance and restore the harmony with the guilty, may renounce a part of the reparations they are entitled to. The decisions of the kris are definitive (there are no higher Romani courts) and they are enforced by the moral pressure of the Romani community.

In Romania, in January 2008, about 500 krisnitorya initiated the European Committee of the Romani Krisnitorya. 

Bloody Fairy in Kragujevac - In 1941 about 3,000 civilians were shot

The Kragujevac Massacre (German - Massaker von Kragujevac) is a massacre of civilians in Kragujevac and the surrounding countryside that was carried out by Nazi Germany units on 19, 20 and 21 October 1941.

The crime affected about 3,000 residents of Kragujevac and the surrounding area, including 300 Kragujevac pupils and fifteen children between the ages of 8 and 15 (Roma children cleaning shoes in the streets of Kragujevac).

According to historians, 2,796 people were shot that day.
The shooting was in retaliation for the 10 killed and 26 wounded German soldiers after fighting partisans and Chetniks on the road between Bar and Huljak.

On October 10, German Commander Franz Beemer ordered that 100 people be killed and 50 wounded for one wounded German soldier. 2300 people were to be killed after the fighting.

'Fake News' Brings Nuisance! This time the journalist Borjan Jovanovski was a victim

Fake news has always been meant to give a curve and an inverted truth. Then the consequences are unintended.
Such information these days on social networks is provoking a reaction, especially among Roma.

As a result of disagreeing with the start of negotiations with the EU and the French "No" to the Republic of North Macedonia, it was used with a Twitter post by journalist Borjan Jovanovski that was posted on social networks and read: "French filth, gypsy church!"

Immediately afterwards, reactions from all sides began, with emphasis on the Roma.

But for truth's sake it turned out, however, that the "fake news" machinery was intended to devalue Borjan Jovanovski personality. He himself appeared on social networks with a single denial and wrote: "Had there been a real strategy and plan to fight the fake news today they would have found a Facebook Mission who falsified and spread hate speech against Roma and France."
