Skopje, 13 September 2017 (MIA) - VMRO-DPMNE Executive Committee member Nikola Srbov accused Deputy Prime Minister Koco Angjusev of abusing his office for personal gain, after a public procurement bid from the state owned ELEM electricity producing company was won by an Angjusev owned company.
"Zoran Zaev and Angjusev act as if the state is their own private property and the budget is their private checking account. Angjusev already pocketed 2,6 million EUR for the first 100 days of offering his services to the Government, through the contract which ELEM signed with his Feroinvest company. This multimillionaire has been a Deputy Prime Minister for only 100 days and already he nabbed a 2,6 million EUR contract. How much is the public going to pay him until the end of the term of this Government, 50, 100, 200 million EUR?", asked Srbov. The contract was signed to provide the ELEM owned REK Bitola coal mine with rubber transportation lines. Angjusev said that the contract is legitimate, because he has stopped actively managing the company, but he acknowledged that he retains property over it.
Srbov warned the public of the dangers of the proposal for liberalization of the electricity market, saying that it will favor energy trading companies like the one owned by Angjusev, while damaging the public which will pay higher electricity prices. According to Srbov, it is likely that the proposal will increase electricity bills by 60 percent.
"VMRO-DPMNE calls on the Public Prosecutor's Office to initiate a criminal investigation that will uncover who influenced the awarding of this contract to the Koco Angjusev's Feroinvest company. Angjusev pulled wool over the eyes of the public, promising that he will give up on his salary as Deputy Prime Minister, which amounts to a 1.000 EUR a month, and now we see that he exchanged these 1.000 EUR for 2,6 million EUR", Srbov said.cc/19:29
