Businessman Sead Kocan did not show up to begin serving his four year sentence in the Idrizovo prison.

Reportedly, Kocan sought treatment in a private hospital. This opens the door for a judge to order his arrest.

Kocan was targeted by the now disgraced Special Prosecutor’s Office, on allegations of corruption involving his construction and mining company. His Nova TV was destroyed as a result of the investigation, which was also used to pressure VMRO-DPMNE members of Parliament to vote in favor of the renaming of Macedonia into “North Macedonia”.
