The PPO reveals the following details:

As co-perpetrators, together with another suspect for whom the investigation for the same crimes is ongoing, they planned the abducting of the 14-year-old Vanja Gjorchevska in order to force a member of her immediate family to give money for ransom.

On 22.11.2023, they jointly abducted the injured Panche Zhezhovski in Veles, with the intention of forcing him to give them his own Citroen vehicle in order to use it to abduct the child in Skopje.

The defendants went to the victim’s house, physically overpowered him and tied him up, then put him in the trunk and headed to a place called Rudnik in the vicinity of Veles, where out of selfishness and in a cruel way, they intentionally deprived him of his life with fire weapon – 9 mm caliber handgun.

After the previously accused father of the victim, through the prime suspect, gave instructions about the time when the girl would go out just to go to school, the three now accused came to the entrance of the building where the injured child lives.

They opened the door from the entrance of the building with a screwdriver, and when the victim got out of the elevator, they caught her, overpowered her and tied her up, threatening her not to scream because they would shoot. They put her in a sleeping bag with the zipper ajar and took her by car near the place called “Dupki”, in the village of Brazda.

There, in a cruel way, they deliberately murdered the child, so that the first suspect inflicted a gunshot wound with a shot from a 9 mm caliber handgun, and the defendants buried the body in a previously dug hole.
