The US Embassy in Macedonia briefly reacted to the lawsuit filed on Wednesday by the Judicial Watch against the State Department and the USAID Agency in Macedonia. On Wednesday, officials with the nonpartisan Judicial Watch notified the news media that they had filed a Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) lawsuit against the Department of State and its subsidiary U.S. Agency for International Development (USAID) for all materials regarding pay outs and political activities of Soros’ Open Society Foundation office located in Macedonia. The US Embassy in Macedonia reminded that the US Embassy pledges for transparency and the Freedom of Information Act plays a vital role which allows the public to obtain data about the work of the government.
