Opposition leader Hristijan Mickoski said that the members of the Albanian terrorist group which perpetrated the attack on Kumanovo in May 2015 which killed eight Macedonian officers are cowards. His comment comes after members of the group attacked two former VMRO-DPMNE state ministers Mile Janakieski and Spiro Ristovski in prison, leaving them with injuries, and then threatened they will kill former Prime Minister Nikola Gruevski and other VMRO officials like Saso Mijalkov and Gordana Jankuloska.

It’s mostruous to comment on statements made by people who face prison sentences as a result of what they did in Kumanovo. They are cowards who threaten people on Facebook, in order to get a lesser jail sentence from their masters, Mickoski said.
