Magazin has learned from sources close to the prosecution that during Monday’s search of the premises of 1TV, whose informal owner is Boki 13, compromising materials for a dozen Macedonian businessmen and firms were found, including Zoran Azmanov, Fijat Canoski, Tinex, NOEL and others. The materials were processed, selected and ready for extortion and racketeering businessmen, and it is assumed that they are copies of the illegally wiretapped materials that only the SPO owns.

The whole investigation was helped by professionals from the European Anti-Fraud Office (OLAF), a European agency for combating crime, corruption and money laundering, who cooperate with the EU delegation in Skopje.

An investigation is also underway for two lawmakers suspected of being part of this media-political racketeering group through abuse of SPO materials.
