Skopje, 31 October, 2017 - 14:52 (META) 

The Skopje Court of Appeals rejected VMRO-DPMNE leader, Nikola Gruevski’s appeal, after he requested that his passport be returned to him, confirmed judge Liljana Ivanovska-Sopova for “Television 24”, who conducted the three-member Council of Judges that ruled on the appeal of the public session.

Otherwise, Gruevski, who is the prime suspect in the SPO’s “Titanic” case, does not have a passport, after the Criminal Court confiscated it, as one of the precautionary measures he was assigned to secure his presence in court.

At yesterday’s public session, Gruevski’s defense team argued that the leader of the largest opposition party in the country, needs a passport in order to carry out his political activities, some of which are in foreign countries.

As confirmation, they submitted to the court and to SPO prosecutors, an invitation from the Prime Minister of Hungary, Viktor Orbán, which had been sent to Gruevski.
