Amounts of 12, 5, 18 and 24 million denars were withdrawn several times in December 2018 and February 2019 from Kamchev’s private bank accounts, testified an employee of Orce Kamchev at today’s Racket case hearing.
Witness Mirjana Boskovska, Forex Officer at Orka Holding, said that in December 2018 and February this year she had withdrawn large amounts of money from the Kamchev family’s private accounts several times.
“In December there were 12 million denars, five million and just over five million denars. I used to exchange them in euro exchange offices. In February I withdrew 18 million and 24 million from the accounts of Kamchev’s sister and mother. With security I went to the exchange office and exchanged them into euros. Then I took them to Kamchev’s home and there along with Kamchev I sorted the money and made a specification, after which I left,” said Boskovska.
Asked by Boki 13 how she brought the money to Orce Kamlev’s home, the witness said in two sports bags.
“Exactly 710,000 euros in two sports bags,” Boskovska replied.
Asked by Katica Janeva’s defense, the witness said she did not specify the funds withdrawn in December.
“We made a specification together with Orce Kamchev only in February,” witness Boskovska said.
The next hearing in the Racket case trial is scheduled for December 25, when four witnesses are due to take stand.
The case is being handled by Judge Vaska Nikolovska Masevska, and the prosecutor is Vilma Ruskoska.
The Basic Public Prosecutor’s Office for Organized Crime and Corruption filed charges in October 2019 against Bojan Jovanovski, Katica Janeva and Zoran Milevski.
The first defendant Jovanovski was suspected of committing the crime of “money laundering and other proceeds of crime”, and Janeva and Milevski for “receiving a reward for unlawful influence”.
The second defendant, Janeva, was also charged with the crime of “abuse of power and authority”.
At the first “Racket” hearing, held this month, the third defendant Zoran Milevski-Kicec pleaded guilty and was sentenced to three years in prison.
