Gruevski saved from charges in the Trajectory case

The period of six years from the commitment of the crime and the failure to have a final verdict in court has saved former prime minister Nikola Gruevski from prosecution in the “Trajectory” case for abuses in the construction of Shtip-Miladinovci and Kichevo-Ohrid motorways.

Upon a motion by Gruevski’s assigned lawyer, the trial chamber ascertained the expiry of the statute of limitations in the case.

Gruevski was indicted for ‘receiving reward for unlawful influence’ that entails a prison sentence of 1-3 years.

Former ministers Mile Janakieski and Vladimir Peshevski, and former State Roads director Ljupcho Georgievski are also indicted in the case for abuse of office and their trial will resume as scheduled.
