Prime Minister Zoran Zaev
Prime Minister Zoran Zaev on the 24th Open 24 shows that based on all the information he has, there is a basis for suspicion that VMRO-DPMNE leader Hristijan Mickoski is involved in the flight of former Prime Minister Nikola Gruevski. Gruevski’s escape was supported from the outside, but given that he was prime minister for a long period of time, he had enough people to help him from within.
He stressed that Mickoski had meetings with Hungarian Prime Minister Viktor Orban and Serbian Prime Minister Aleksandar Vucic, but after the meetings he did not announce what they were talking about. He stressed that he can not claim that at those meetings may have been discussed something about Gruevski’s escape, but added that on the basis of the information in his possession there is a basis for such a suspicion.
He did not want to speak for details of the investigation into where the responsibility for the former prime minister’s flight was, but stressed that he did not believe Miskovski would be involved in the investigation.
He said he doubted that Gruevski would escape that there were such clues, was followed and secured, but that there was no specific information about how this would have happened.
– I have a need to say more, but I can not because the investigation is still ongoing. It is not normal that he fled the country, but we will see who is guilty, if someone has an investigation he will show and he will bear responsibility, Zaev said.
He believes that Interior Minister Oliver Spasovski is not responsible for Gruevski’s escape, stressing that the effects of his work are large and added that the Ministry of Interior acted in accordance with its own capacities, but still in a way that would not violate human rights.
-We will fight with all the tools to restore, Zaev said and added that there is still no response to the extradition request from Hungary.
“We will wait and ask for a way to implement it, and while not breaking the friendship, Hungary should vote on the NATO membership protocol,” Zaev said, adding that Orban will not ask for a special meeting for Gruevski, but follows Davos and other important international conferences that will have the opportunity to see with the Hungarian prime minister and open this topic.
Zaev also spoke about the amnesty law, stressing that in such moments, when the country is faced with the possibility of achieving strategic goals, it is necessary for everyone in the country to offer their hand.
