The extradition process for the fugitive Nikola Gruevski has begun, government spokesman Mile Bosnjakovski said at a press conference in Government.

“The Ministry of Justice is collecting all the necessary documentation for the case, which is extensive and approximately 400 pages. When completed and translated, it will be sent to Hungary. It will happen in the next few days,” said Bosnjakovski.

He pointed out that they are still determining the manner in which Gruevski left the country and whether someone assisted him. Bosnjakovski stated that the internal affairs of the Ministry of Interior are investigating whether police officers helped Gruevski flee and said more detailed information on when the investigation will be announced when it is completed.
