President Stevo Pendarovski regarding the escape of the former director of UBK Sasho Mijalkov calls on all competent institutions to take the necessary measures in order to implement the court decision for his detention.
“Such events are unacceptable in a country that expects to open EU accession talks and which is working hard to reform its judicial system and to build trust in the rule of law. This discredits all such efforts and any hopes that we will tackle the crime and high corruption”, Pendarovski said.
He also called on the state institutions to quickly investigate how was it possible that Mijalkov disappeared as he was awaiting sentencing in the major wiretapping scandal.
“Citizens demand responsibility, both criminal and moral. The fight for the rule of law means that anyone who has broken the law has to be punished,” said President Pendarovski.
