He stressed that it is not true that there were threats and that they took money.
-Nothing was promised regarding the case concerning the 27th of April and therefore I don’t want to give any information. We come here to prove that we are innocent – said Arnaudov.
Before him, there was a reaction by 5 out of 8 VMRO-DPMNE’s MPs, who issued the same message – they weren’t blackmailed or weren’t threatened, nor were bribed.
In the letter sent to the media on Saturday, undersigned in the name of the MPs from the opposition who supported the constitutional amendments, it says that they wish well to Macedonia and stated that they want the procedure to continue. They want a guarantee that the constitutional amendments should be abolished if Greece doesn’t ratify the Agreement and if it hinders Macedonia’s Euro-Atlantic integrations, including the parliamentary committee that will prepare a plan for a national reconciliation, in congruence with the the message that was sent on Monday by Prime Minister Zoran Zaev, on the first day of the session on constitutional changes.
