Italian Media: Macedonian corrupt officials admitted their involvement in racketeering


In Tuesday’s radio show on Italian Radio Capodistria, Laris Gaiser, collaborator of the Italian newspaper La Verità, said that after the publication of the audio recordings he expected that the people whose voices were heard would deny that it was theirs.

I didn’t sleep for fear that the people in the recordings would deny that it was theirs. Something that is quite legitimate. But everybody acknowledged it was their voices, Gaiser says.

He points out that systemic, political and judicial corruption has been uncovered.

We feared that the evidence would disappear, that’s why we made it public, adds the journalist.

He commented that Macedonian Prime Minister Zoran Zaev’s political career is over. According to him, Zaev has zero international credibility and says that change of prime minister is very likely.
