Prosecutor Vilma Ruskoska, who has been instrumental in Zoran Zaev’s campaign of political persecution against the opposition parties, annnouced a new round of charges by the end of May.

The charges are again expected to be aimed at opposition officials, over the April 2017 incident in the Parliament. The Zaev regime has used this case to target dozens of opposition officials and activists, most notably by pressuring three members of Parliament to vote in favor of renaming Macedonia.

After the trial was largely completed, and selective pardons given to the members of Parliament whose votes Zaev needed to impose the name “North Macedonia”, Ruskoska broadened the charges and demanded the arrest of former Parliament Speaker Trajko Veljanoski and two former Ministers – Mile Janakieski and Spiro Ristovski. Janakieski and Ristovski were promptly detained, only to be attacked by Albanian terrorists in prison the very next day.
