Jankuloska, Grujevski, Boskovski to be tried separately in Target-Fortress case

Skopje, 19 June 2018 (MIA) - The trial in Special Prosecutor's Office (SPO) case dubbed Target-Fortress will resume on August 31, when the trial judges will decide over the motions resulting from the decision of the Greek Supreme Court not to extradite defendants Goran Grujevski and Nikola Boskovski.

SPO prosecutor Lence Ristoska filed a motion for separation of the procedure against Grujevski and Boskovski, which the court approved. The procedure against defendant Gordana Jankuloska has also been separated due to the fact that she is in the final month of pregnancy.

"Target-Fortress" relates to the illegal wiretapping and destruction of surveillance equipment. Former Administration for Security and Counterintelligence (UBK) officials Goran Grujevski and Nikola Boskoski, former minister of interior Gordana Jankuloska, former UBK head Saso Mijalkov and his cabinet chief Toni Jakimovski are indicted in the case.

According to the indictment, 4,286 telephone numbers were under illegal surveillance in period 2008-2015, for which court orders had not been issued. Communications were also under surveillance  prior to the issuance or after the end of the validity of court orders for 1,541 telephone numbers. Over 20,000 citizens were wiretapped during the aforementioned period. ik/15:59
