The license number used by the bus involved in the accident that happened in Bulgaria on Tuesday doesn’t match its real license number, which means that the bus was using the license of another vehicle registered to “Besa Trans”, thus violating the Law on Road Transport, the Ministry of Transport and Communications said in a press release on Friday.
The Ministry added that it doesn’t have authority to conduct controls, noting that the information should be proven by international and domestic investigators.
The bus involved in the accident didn’t have an international license for transport of passengers and wasn’t registered in the Ministry’s e-database.
“The number of Besa Trans’s license for international transport of passengers is 007017. The license number 22679 that was used by the bus in question upon exiting North Macedonia belongs to another vehicle, also owned by “Besa Trans”,” the Ministry’s press release read.
