Judge Ljubinka Basevska sentenced the driver Jordan Gjorgjiev to three years in prison over the car accident near “City Mall”, in which 24-year-old Viktorija Nikolova from Radovis died. He is also banned from driving a Category B vehicle for a period of three years from the verdict.

The verdict is not final and the parties have the right to appeal to the Court of Appeals in Skopje for the amount of the fine.

Judge Ljubinka Basevska expressed deep condolences to the family members of the victim who were not personally present at the sentencing.

Gjorgjiev, who pleaded guilty last week, was prosecuted for serious offenses against the safety of people and property in traffic.
