In 2013, Bozinovski was a suspect in the “Spy” case, however, because he was unavailable to law enforcement agencies, the investigation against him was discontinued. Bozinovski was extradited from Serbia to Macedonia after being arrested by Serbian authorities due to an international arrest warrant having come into force following Skopje authorities issued an arrest warrant in 2013.
