A new shipment of medical aid to Macedonia will arrive on Monday, organized by the opposition VMRO-DPMNE party through a conservative sister party, said VMRO party leader Hristijan Mickoski. Today a plane from Slovenia brought 100.000 masks and 100.000 pairs of gloves, after Mickoski asked the newly elected Slovenian Prime Minister Janez Jansa for assistance.
Our citizens are in an unenvious situation and as we as the opposition party are working to do our best. We are using our contacts outside of the country to bring as much aid as possible, Mickoski said during an interview on Friday.
He added that he spoke on the phone with Jansa on Tuesday and asked for the assistance.
– This will not be the end, this is just the first shipment and we will have more soon, said Mickoski.
The Government junta in Macedonia continues with its horrific handling of the country. Today came the order to ban private hospitals from revealing the numbers of coronavirus tests conducted and the number of positive results. The strange order was given after the Sistina clinic continued to embarrass the public healthcare system, both with the speed and affordability of its testing, and by revealing that the Government is undertesting and under-reporting the number of coronavirus cases in the country.
Sistina is co-owned by businessman Jordan Orce Kamcev, who was the victim of an elaborate racketeering scheme by former Special Prosecutor Katica Janeva, allegedly in coordination with top officials of the ruling SDSM party. Kamcev’s revelations caused a major corruption scandal involving SDSM and it is only due to the prosecutors playing defense for the Government that just one top SDSM official (Frosina Remenski) was charged in relation with the scandal.
