The Customs Office informed the press that organized crime prosecutors are investigating the allegations that a ton of hard drugs was allowed to enter Macedonia, through the Skopje airport, carried under police escort. The allegation was made by VMRO-DPMNE official Dragan Kovacki, who said that the drugs were smuggled in ostensibly as a shipment from a cellphone company.

Officials of the Customs Office are working on the case, on orders from the prosecutors. Contact the state prosecutor’s office for more information, the Customs Office said in a short response.
