The Thessaloniki Council of Judges ruled that former Chiefs of the Security and Counterintelligence Administration (UBK) Goran Grujevski and Nikola Boskovski to be extradited to Macedonia, reported the Voria portal.

According to the same source, immediately after the announcement of the verdict, the two defendants appealed the decision to the Supreme Court in Greece.

As “Voria” writes, Grujevski and Boskovski demanded that the hearing be in front of cameras because they were afraid for their lives.

Otherwise, initially the decision of the Thessaloniki court was due to be announced on December 22nd last year, but the verdict was adjourned and rescheduled for today because Grujevski and Boskovski complained that they did not understand the translator who was from Bulgaria.

Grujovski and Boskovski are charged in the cases of the Special Prosecutor’s Office for the “Target” and “Fortress” cases, related to the illegal wiretapping of over 20,000 people in the country and the destruction of the equipment for wiretapping.

They were arrested on October 18th at Thessaloniki Airport trying to leave for Budapest with counterfeit Bulgarian passports.
