Skopje, 22 November 2017 (MIA) - A defendant in a case investigated by the Special Public Prosecution (SPO) has been given a six-month suspended prison sentence. The person voluntarily pleaded guilty to charges related to the SPO's case codenamed Target-Fortress.
It is the first legally binding verdict involving a case of the public prosecution tasked with probing high-level crime.
The SPO said Wednesday that the convict had been tried in court proceedings separated from the case. The person, whose identity isn't revealed, was convinced on Nov. 17.
The offender was put on trial for his involvement in abetting another person to erase logs at the Administration for Security and Counterintelligence (UBK). The person received a six-month suspended sentence provided that s/he didn't repeat the offence in the next two years.
Former UBK employee Goran Grujevski and his colleague Nikola Boskoski are indicted in the Target-Fortress case, a combination of two cases opened by the SPO. They are pending extradition in a jail in Greece.
Former interior minister Gordana Jankuloska, former UBK head Saso Mijalkov and his head of cabinet, Toni Jakimovski, have been also indicted. ba/14:44
