The Defense Ministry said it will investigate in full the report that a soldier sexually harassed a female soldier in the Kumanovo barracks. The alleged incident happened four days ago, and was reported the next day by the female soldier.

We strongly condemn any attempt of sexual harassment. Such behavior is unacceptable in the army. The case is being investigated and if it’s proven, we will have zero tollerance. Nobody can dare harass the female army members and diminish the reputation of the army, the Defense Ministry said.
