Detention for seven persons over drugs production in Tetovo


Seven persons of the international criminal ring producing synthetic drugs in the Tetovo region have been given 30-day detention.

The public prosecutor’s office for organized crime and corruption has detained two Serbian and five Macedonian nationals suspected with unauthorized production and distribution of narcotics, psychotropic substances and precursors.

The Macedonian police conducted searches in Tetovo and Skopje on November 30 and December 1, detecting an illegal laboratory for production of narcotics in Tetovo, and large quantities of materials for this purpose in Skopje village Batinci.

The preliminary expertise has established that the group produced over 200,000 tablets-amphetamines weighing about 35kg, while the remaining materials and substances are currently analyzed.

The Macedonian and Serbian prosecutor’s offices are jointly working on the case.
