Government appoints Saso Tasevski for Director of Public Security Bureau

At its regular session on Wednesday, the government appointed Saso Tasevski for the Public Security Bureau (PSB) Director.

Now ex-PSB Director Laze Velkovski was released from duty over a scandal with a official state car.

The incoming one, Tasevski, is a holder of master degree in security and future PhD of the Skopje-based Faculty of Security. He is an experienced police officer, serving at the Ministry of Interior Affairs (MoI) since 2001. Few months ago he was head of the MoI Protective Security Detail Unit for VIPs and state institutions. He also served as a bodyguard of ex-Prime Minister Branko Crvenkovski.

During the parliament incidents in April 2017, Tasevski, a then-bodyguard of incumbent Minister of Interior Oliver Spasovski, along with two-three colleagues managed to save the lives of high officials of SDSM party, who were under attack of the raging mob in the Parliament’s press room.
