VMRO-DPMNE President Hristijan Mickoskii strongly condemned the report that top police officials from Prilep and the leadership of the Interior Ministry ordered the following of the opposition mayoral candidate there and used the police to persecute his activists. The revelations were made by VMRO official Dragan Kovacki today, who shared Viber messages exchanged between the police officials in Prilep through a group that included 40 people.

We have a lot of similar evidence that we delivered to the international representatives. I call on the prosecutors to investigate this scandal and to file criminal charges. Notice the rhetoric used by the police officials close to the SDSM party. it’s sickening to read what they were writing, Mickoski said.

The comments, besides profanities, include calls to beat up and kill opposition activists in Prilep.
