The Macedonian Ministry of Justice said it has sent a request to the competent Turkish authorities that Ljupcho Palevski-Palcho, the prime suspect in the murders of Vanja Gjorchevska and Panche Zhezhovski, be kept in detention until extradition proceedings are completed. The Ministry notes that it expects Turkey to immediately act on its request.
“The Ministry of Justice received an official notification from Interpol at 9:20 am today, according to which Ljupcho Palevski, wanted by international warrant, has been arrested in Turkey. The Ministry of Justice has started the extradition proceedings and is collecting all the documents from the institutions required for the extradition. The Prosecutor’s Office of the Republic of North Macedonia and the Basic Prosecutor’s Office in Skopje have been contacted in order to properly complete the files so that the Ministry of Justice could further act. Coordination is underway with all relevant institutions so as to act immediately and earlier than the time limit of 40 days for presentation of the formal extradition request,” the Ministry of Justice said in a press release.
