A 57 year old man from Tetovo, identified as F.T., who worked as driver for former Albanian terrorist commander and later Tetovo Mator and Deputy Prime Minister Hazbi Lika, was found dead with a gunshot wound.

F.T. was found by his son, in his car which had at least one visible gunshot hole. The police is still investigating whether the death was murder or suicide.

Hazbi Lika was one of the commanders of the Ali Ahmeti led NLA/UCK terrorist organization which started the 2011 war in Macedonia. As the group transformed into the DUI political party, Lika was elected Mayor of Tetovo, and eventually Deputy Prime Minister to Zoran Zaev. He was recently dismissed from the position, as part of Zaev’s purge, reportedly due to his refusal to come to work.
