VMRO-DPMNE warns that the income tax revenue has dropped by a third in the second quarter of the year, pushed down by higher taxes but also by the rampant extortion and racketeering of business by the SDSM led Government.

On top of the wrongheaded economic policies, businesses are suffering from racketeering perpetrated by the Zaev Government. We can’t have economic growth if the criminal group led by Zoran Zaev is extorting money from whichever business it wants. And while the citizens are being pressured, criminals are sent off from prison, VMRO-DPMNE said in a press release.

The opposition party demands accountability from SDSM for the major criminal scandal in which it is alleged that top Government officials were using their power, as well as the Special Prosecutor’s Office, to blackmail businesses extorting millions from them.
