Skopje mayor Petre Silegov apologized to the citizens for the second round of increases of the parking fees at the main Skopje Mother Teresa clinic. After sparking a protest of clinic employees, Silegov today faced angry comments from patients, who were forced to pay 70 denars (1.2 EUR) per hour of parking.

We realized our mistake and we acted quickly to correct the decision. I can’t say we ideally predicted everything, it is impossible to do, but at least we act quickly to correct the mistakes, Silegov said at a press conference today.

Some patients and patient visitors posted shocked comments online, after being forced to pay more than 350 denars in parking fees for a routine procedure.
