Even though judge Dijana Gruevska- Ilievska has said that the conditions for starting the main discussion for the “Bribe” case are fulfilled, she still postponed the hearing until the 27th of September on request of the defense for excluding the recordings that were taped by the use of special investigative measures since they were already published on “YouTube”.

Zaev, who appeared at the court for the first time as the Prime Minister of the state, said that he and his defense were weighing whether to publish the complete video recording in order to reveal the complete content or to demand its exemption as evidence, after which they decided to use the second opportunity that the law provides.

When asked about the issue that was asked about by Prosecutor Vladimir Miloshevski, whether it is the same recording that was published on “YouTube”, Zaev said that one doesn’t have to be an expert in order to see that the recording is the same, only that the one published on “YouTube” was cut in two places in order to serve the needs of a political trial that, as was alluded by Zaev, was organized by the previous government.
