Interior Minister Oliver Spasovski said that the police is not following disgraced Special Prosecutor Katica Janeva and doesn’t know her current whereabouts. This prompted rumors that Janeva has already fled the country.

Janeva hasn’t been seen in the public since Monday, when she tendered her resignation after an associate of hers was arrested on the charges of extorting 1.5 million EUR using Janeva’s power as leverage.

We don’t know where Katica Janeva is. We are not responsible for following the movement of every citizen, Spasovski said.

He confirmed that the Interior Ministry has been receiving reports that other businessmen were also targeted for extortion by this criminal group.
