Former Minister Spiro Ristovski requests that his detention is lifted and to defend himself from freedom or detention be replaced with house arrest. Ristovski is one of the suspects involved in organizing the storming of Parliament on April 27.

I do not intend to run away, I am a family man with children who study here. I do not have a backup plan. My full functioning is related to Macedonia. And in terms of influencing witnesses, I know that the investigation is over. I have not even thought of influencing someone because I am sure that I will prove my innocence, Ristovski told Telma.

Appellate’s decision on the request of Ristovski will be known soon.
