Police in FYROM have arrested a journalist on suspicion that he is behind three murders he reported on.
The journalist, Vlado Taneski, is accused of raping, torturing and killing three elderly women in the south-western town of Kicevo. FYROM police began to suspect him after he included details in his reports that they had not made public.
Other men have reportedly already been convicted of the first two murders. The third was committed last month. Mr. Taneski, 56, has not yet been charged with any offence, police said. They allege that he kidnapped and abused the women before cutting them into pieces and dumping them in plastic bags.
I suppose he reported the truth and only the …truth! So except human and drugs trafficking another talent raises in FYROM!
FYROM is holding a snap general election called after Greece vetoed the ex-Yugoslav republic’s attempt to join NATO because of its name and with the fear of the Albanians.
Macedonia is the name of a Greek region and history resents a perceived and based on lies attempt to claim the heritage of Philip of Macedon and Alexander the Great. The country’s ruling coalition is also divided over recognizing Kosovo as an independent state.
Around a quarter of the population are ethnic Albanians like most of Kosovo. The centre-right coalition also wants to speed up reforms. Sunday’s vote could determine whether FYROM joins both NATO and the European Union, most of which did recognize Kosovo when it declared independence in February.
About time to leave all the hysterical past and try to work in a better future because FYROM has no time to spare and only one chance to prove that it is a modern democratic state!
A Georgian former defense minister convicted of extortion in his home country has been granted asylum in France, his lawyer has said.
Irakli Okruashvili, a prominent critic of the Georgian president, insists the charges were politically motivated. His lawyer said France had been “receptive” to his appeal for political asylum in the country. Okruashvili, dismissed from office in 2006, was sentenced in absentia in Georgia to 11 years in prison in March.
Let me see, Georgia is a candidate country for the NATO? So we had FYROM and Georgia two …democracies for a militarist union, somehow you feel grateful there is the veto!
Disappointing even their only allies the constantly failing US administration and George W. Bush, FYROM legislators have voted to dissolve parliament and hold early elections amid a row with Greece over the country’s name.
Greece correctly wants the former Yugoslav republic to change the stolen name that implies a territorial claim over its northern province of the same name, the historic Macedonia the country of Great Alexander.
Greece blocked Macedonia’s bid to join NATO a week ago over the name issue. FYROM Prime Minister Nikola Gruevski said opposition parties had been blocking his plans for reform. “We remain committed to our goals to join NATO and the European Union,” Gruevski said. “But the necessary reforms are halted with a blockade of parliamentary procedures.”
What remains to see is if the extremist voices will win and keep FYROM out of any legal institution like EU based on a lie or the logic and start serious negotiations with Greece.
If the people of Skopje need to blame somebody for all the lies and the empty promises here are the leading two, one is American the other wished all his life to be American. The first is going fast down to the unwanted the second?
