Jasna Mandik, the deputy head of the International Association led by Bojan Jovanovski – Boki 13, was detained this evening and taken before the court.

Mandik is suspected of money laundering, after it was revealed that the organization took at least a million euros from several businessmen who either faced extortion or were promised lucrative real-estate deals using Boki 13’s ties to the ruling SDSM party.

Boki 13, who is at the center of the major racketeering scandal, was arrested in mid July. His father is also being charged, as is top SDSM party official Frosina Remenski, who was named an honorary president of the International Association. Representatives of this bogus charity organization famously withdrew more than 700.000 EUR from a bank in one swoop, after the money was paid by Bitola based businessman Siljan Micevski.
