The court ordered additional 30 days detention for Bojan Jovanovski – Boki 13 and Zoran Mileski – Zoki Kicheec, the only defendants in the massive corruption scandal that has shaken Macedonia.

The two were arrested nearly a month ago, on the suspicion that they extorted 1.5 million EUR from businessman Jordan Orce Kamcev, promising him that in exchange they will help him sink the money laundering charges raised against him by the Special Prosecutors Office.

Despite clear indication, and eventually secretly recorded evidence, that Special Prosecutor Katica Janeva was directly involved in the case, while many high ranking SDSM party officials were also involved or at least knew about what was going on, only Boki 13 and Zoki Kicheec remain charged and detained so far.
