Crime worth millions at MLSP, illegally paid social assistance to over 2,000 people


Up to 2,252 illegal payments were made to the accounts of users of funds for guaranteed minimum assistance, with which a million-dollar crime was committed in MLSP through abuse of the social protection system and illegal and illegal payment of these funds, the Minister of Labor and Social Policy Gjoko Velkovski told a press briefing on Monday.

“To clarify the situation for the public, it is about over 2200 beneficiaries who received guaranteed minimum assistance and social pension and reported that they do not own a vehicle, and according to the records of the Ministry of Interior, they are the owners of such a means of transport. When cross-checking the databases months ago, the system states that these persons have a vehicle, but it is inexplicable how the services did not act in relation to the same, which continued the payment of funds, which caused millions of dollars in damage to the ministry’s budget. We have initial knowledge that a retroactive payment of funds was also observed for several months back, which opened a great doubt about abuses committed in the institutions under the jurisdiction of the Ministry of Labor and Social Policy,” elaborated Velkovski.
