Police officers remain deployed in front of the several homes owned by former state security chief Saso Mijalkov in Skopje, as well as in his unofficial base of operations – the downtown Marriott hotel.
Mijalkov was ordered into house arrest by the court yesterday, as he awaits a sentencing in the major wiretapping case later this week, but the police was unable to find him and give him the house arrest order.
A Europe wide warrant was issued for Mijalkov today. This is a new major embarrassment for the Zaev regime, especially as it comes at a time when questions are being raised about Zaev’s political and massive business deals with Mijalkov.
It was Mijalkov in cooperation with Zaev who entered the homes of 8 DPNE MPs to pressure them into voting for the name change. As Sekerinska would say “this is the first escape by Mijalkov since we’re members of NATO”.
