Tank case: Proposals from Gruevski’s defence Rejected

13022018 3

At Monday’s hearing over the Tank case, opened by the Special Prosecutor’s Office (SPO), all proposals made by ex-PM Nikola Gruevski’s defence for the expertise ordered by the SPO as well as the wire-tapped conversations through which the order of the luxurious Mercedes was revealed to be refuted were rejected. After the defence lawyers’ insistence that the next hearing shouldn’t take place on Tuesday because of Gruevski’s agenda, which was supposed to see him appear this week in court five times for three different cases, the hearing was rescheduled for Friday. “A political process against me is underway,” Gruevski stated. The former Minister of Internal Affairs, Gordana Jankuloska, too, is among the defendants in the case.
