VMRO-DPMNE’s General Secretary and former acting prime minister, Emil Dimitriev, today didn’t give any statements at the Special Public Prosecution, but, by his own admission, he has asked to inspect the evidence of the “Talir” case, where he is one of the 11 suspects.
-I asked for an inspection of the evidence and as soon as I’m granted that I will give a statement – said VMRO-DPMNE’s General Secretary.
Dimitriev was at the SPO’s offices for half an hour and was accompanied by his attorney Nikola Dodevski, who is the main defender of most of the suspects in the cases that are investigated by SPO.
In a statement given to media, he didn’t want to comment the findings of SPO’s investigation in the case of “Talir” for illegal financing of VMRO-DPMNE.
-Let’s leave this case to be investigated by the institutions without providing additional statements and commentaries – said Dimitriev.
As was reported, SPO has sent invitations to all of the 11 suspects to provide a statement regarding “Talir” at the prosecution’s offices. Otherwise, the prime suspect, in this case, is VMRO-DPMNE’s party leader and former Prime Minister, Nikola Gruevski.
Unofficially, Gruevski, Ilija DImovski, and Kiril Božinovski will not come today at the inquiry because they allegedly didn’t receive an invitation.
Around 12 o’clock, at SPO’s offices, appeared MP Daniela Rangelova, who was also a suspect in the “Talir” case. As she announced even she is going to demand to inspect the evidence.
Rangelova said that she doesn’t feel guilty, and when asked about how has her party gained so much property, she said that question has to be directed towards the one who has that property.
