The Court of Appeals in Skopje announced that the decision made by the Criminal Council of Basic Court Skopje 1, which was a measure of detention for businessman Sead Kočan, the prime suspect in the “Trust” case which was launched by the Special Prosecutor’s Office (SPO), was confirmed “due to the suspect being a flight risk”.

The court reported that after yesterday’s public hearing, the Criminal Council of the Court of Appeals made  the decision of partially approved Kočan’s appeal that was submitted by his attorney Nikola Dodevski. The  court assessed that the remaining reasons because of which a detention was ruled for Kočan i.e. that it will influence the investigation and that there is a danger of repeating the act were rejected.
