A Skopje Court sentenced Friday Saso Mijalkov to three years in prison, and Menduh Thaci to 3 years and 2 months in the “Titanic 2” case.
Of the former members of the SEC who are defendants in the case, Bedredin Ibraimi was sentenced to 4 years and 6 months in prison, while Aneta Stefanovska, Vlatko Sajkovski and Saso Srcev were sentenced to three years.
Ако Мијалков и Тачи добија по три години затвор за тоа што им кажале на членовите на ДИК како да гласаат за приговор за едно е*бано избирачко место, колку ли ќе добијат Корнишонот и компанија за тоа што им кажуваа на пратениците како да гласаат за промена на Уставот?— Fotograf (@zbiramfoto) March 8, 2019
