The eminent worldwide audit firm Price Waterhouse Coopers in its latest report confirmed Leader’s reports on fraudulent bankruptcy and financial crime at the TE-TO plant, which is over 200 million euros.In December 2019, it was announced that a business-political-judicial scheme had produced a total of 200m euros worth of crime, including damaging the state.Then the Leader portal published the scheme for the role of everyone involved in thecase.
Leonid Lebedev – owner of Bitar Holding
The Russian oligarch, believed to be worth 1.2 billion USD, is a Cypriot citizen wherehe operates the Bitar holding, which owns the Balkan Energy Group, the main heating provider in Skopje and co-owner of the TE-TO plant. Lebedev is suspected of syphoning 150 million EUR from Macedonia through price fixing and the TE-TO bankruptcy, which greatly damaged the publicly traded Toplifikacija company, which is co-owner of TE-TO. Toplifikacija, the previously main heating provider, is now locked in a bitter dispute with Lebedev over TE-TO.
Zoran Zaev –Prime Minister of the Republic of North Macedonia
On top of the suspicious bankruptcy procedure, the main issue linked with TE-TO and Lebedev is the debt write off they received from the Macedonian Government estimated at 24 million EUR. Zaev had the final say in approving the write off, which greatly benefited the Russian owned company. This puts Zaev at the center of yet another corruption scandal.
Koco Angjusev –Deputy Prime Minister of the RNM
Angjusev, who is responsible for economic issues in the Zaev Government and has already announced he is quitting politics in April, is also the owner of EDS. This energy trading company, which he has since sold to the Greek state owned DEH/DEI, was a key trader with the electric energy produced by TE-TO. It is now believed that the electricity was sold at greatly deflated prices, which led to the bankruptcy of TE-TO, and Angjusev was directly involved in these trades.
Nina Angelovska – Finance Minister
Angelovska has direct oversight over the UJP public revenue service. UJP was crucial in approving the 24 million EUR debt write off, given that TE-TO owed the money for unpaid income tax.
Vladimir Naumovski – Chairman of the Commission for Protection of Competition
Naumovski also gave the green light to allow the TE-TO debt write off. His commission was asked whether approving this type of assistance would affect the free market and decided that it is acceptable.
Sanja Lukarevska – UJP tax revenue office director
Lukarevska leads the powerful tax authority which delayed the collection of TE-TO’s income tax until the unpaid liabilities grew to 24 million EUR. The delays led to TE-TO being able to claim statute of limitations on its debt, which influenced the decision.
Vilma Ruskovska – head organized crime prosecutor
The notorious prosecutor received a report from the Financial Police, which was investigating the TE-TO bankruptcy and deemed it as fradulent. Ruskovska decided not to press charges.
Saska Trajkovska – bankruptcy judge
The judge which works in the bankruptcy department of the Skopje court gave approval that TE-TO enters bankruptcy and on the same day allowed it to leave bankruptcy, as soon as this manouver led to the nullification of the 28 million EUR in outstanding debt TE-TO owed to Toplifikacija. This caused serious damage to the Toplifikacija shareholders.
