Government dismisses director of PSB, Lazo Velkovski


The government has dismissed the director of the Public Security Bureau, Lazo Velkovski. Until a new director is appointed, the PSB will be headed by the current deputy director, Besir Deari.

Interior Minister Oliver Spasovski submitted a proposal to dismiss Velkovski after he sent his daughter to Greece with an official jeep and security detail, without permission on Ilinden. He assessed that his daughter’s safety was in jeopardy and should travel with a police vehicle, but had not received permission.

Velkovski has worked for the Interior Ministry for 27 years and spent his career in the Intelligence Agency. Prime Minister Zoran Zaev said he would most likely remain employed in the Ministry of Interior after his dismissal.

Velkovski headed the Public Security Bureau for 1 year, and was successor to Mitko Cavkov.
