Theater goes on, Mijalkov gets 12 years, escorted to prison


The court quickly approved the prosection’s request that former secret police chief Saso Mijalkov is detained after his sentencing to 12 years in prison. Instead of into house arrest, Mijalkov was escorted to the Sutka prison near Skopje.

Mijalkov’s escape into Serbia over the weekend likely ensured this outcome.


While this theatrical show with Mijalkov is ongoing, Zaev is wrapping up with the sale of Macedonia’s history to Bulgaria – it’s the perfect distraction.
