SPO submits wiretapped conversation as evidence in "Sopot" case

Skopje, 18 October 2017 (MIA) - The Special Prosecutor's Office (SPO) submitted a recording from a wiretapped telephone conversation between former minister of interior Gordana Jankuloska and former Administration for Security and Counterintelligence (UBK) director Saso Mijalkov as evidence at Wednesday's hearing in case "Sopot".

The defense lawyers announced they would ask the court to call Jankuloska and Mijalkov as witnesses in the case, because their testimonies are crucial in establishing the truth in the case.

SPO also urged for the summoning of six UBK employees as witnesses before the court.

The trial will continue on November 23, so that the defense has time to review the new evidence, while the court to decide if the evidence is to be accepted.

"Sopot" dates back from 2003, when two Polish soldiers and a Macedonian national were killed after a NATO vehicle hit a mine. Ten individuals were charged for planting the mine at local road Susevo-Sopot and convicted for terrorism.

The public prosecutor's office for organized crime and corruption handed over the case to SPO this July, after the release of wiretapped conversations between government officials related to this case. ik/13:14
