The only one convicted in the big corruption scandal released from house arrest


Zoki Mileski-Kiceec is out on bail of more than 200,000 euros and his house arrest has been lifted, confirmed on Friday the head of the Prosecutor’s Office for Organized Crime and Corruption Vilma Ruskoska and his lawyer Aleksandar Novakovski.

“We have accepted the guarantee in the property, with the fact that the sentence will not include the period that he will be released until the verdict becomes final,” said Prosecutor Ruskoska.

Lawyer Novakovski says a financial guarantee has been accepted for his client to no longer be under house arrest. He does not know exactly how much the guarantee is, but he says it was over 200 thousand euros.

Mileski was sentenced to three years in prison for the crime of “receiving a reward for illegal influence”. So far, he has been the only one convicted in the “Racket” case after pleading guilty.

So far, Mileski has spent almost nine months in prison in Suto Orizari and under house arrest, which will be added to the prison sentence he will have to serve after the verdict becomes final. This means that Kiceec should serve another 2 years and 3 months in prison.
