Trial in SPO’s “Titanic” case resumes

The trial in Special Prosecutor’s Office’s “Titanic” case resumes today at the Criminal Court, after a one month summer court recess.

The last hearing in SPO’s “Titanic” case on July 5 was postponed due to the absence of Mile Janakieski, who is one of the defendants.

Twenty one individuals are indicted in the case, including former prime minister Nikola Gruevski, former interior minister Gordana Jankuloska, former minister of transport and communications Mile Janakieski and former government secretary-general Kiril Bozhinovski.

They are suspected of criminal association, violation of voting rights, violation of the freedom of choice, election bribes, destruction of election materials and abuse of election campaign funds.

Special Prosecutor Lile Stefanova, who was mentioned in the recent recordings in connection with the ‘Racket’ case released by Italian newspaper La Verita, is in charge of the ‘Titanic’ case. Stefanova is summoned at the Public Prosecutor’s Office on Tuesday to give a statement in relation to the “Racket” case.
