Macedonian Minister of Internal Affairs Oliver Spasovski strongly condemned Tuesday night’s events in front of the Parliament, where 47 police officers were injured, two of them seriously. Spasovski visited the two police officers at the Neurosurgery Clinic Wednesday morning.
Spasovski characterized Tuesday night’s events as vandalism, pointing out that protest is a democratic right, sending a message to political parties that they must not organize violent protests and violent overthrow of the government.
The Interior Minister said that the police arrested 11 people, two of whom were minors. According to Spasovski, no protesters were injured. The police acted only towards that group of citizens who were attacking.
