He also informed the International Federation of Journalists with a letter addressed to the President and the Public Prosecutor which calls for the immediate and unconditional release of Zoran Bozinovski.

“The AJM has requested support for Bozinovski from international and European organizations and institutions. If anyone thinks that they will sentence a journalist in Macedonia with imprisonment, and the national and European public will not know about it, they’re clearly in denial.
