Agents from the state transport inspection service are unable to conduct new investigations in the Besa Trans company in Skopje, whose bus crashed in Bulgaria two weeks ago with the loss of 45 lives.

According to inspection director Rufat Huseini, the owner of the company could not be reached, and its office is locked. The owner, Bekim Haxhiu, stayed in Bulgaria after the crash to make himself available to Bulgarian investigators.

The company was quickly stripped of its license, after it was found that it violated a number of regulations. The cause of the crash, and most importantly, the reason why the bus burst into flames so quickly, still hasn’t been announced, even after Bulgarian investigators said that they have determined the cause.
