Prosecutor Vilma Ruskoska, who is one of the top Zaev loyalists in the judiciary, was vocal in her dissatisfaction after it was proven that her star witness could not testify in the April 27 trial. The Zaev regime is attempting to use Ruskoska and a pressured witness to declare that the opposition VMRO-DPMNE party was involved in the incident in the Parliament in April 2017.

But an analysis of the phone used by the witness, Aleksandar Vasilevski – Ninja, proved that he was not in contact with then VMRO-DPMNE official Mile Janakieski. Testimonies further proved that Ninja was not in the VMRO-DPMNE party office on the day of the incident. This both punches major holes in his testimony, as he is the only person alleging to have first hand evidence that the party was involved in the protests and the incident that followed the irregular vote to appoint Talat Xhaferi as Speaker of the Parliament.

After these revelations, Ruskoska objected to judge Ilija Trpkov, and insisted that the evidence used to determine Ninja’s communications and whereabouts should be dismissed. The judge was assured that the ways to determine the location of the phone are reliable.
