      Political and Judiciary Corruption in Macedonia

      Extortion Affair Rocks North Macedonia’s Special Prosecution

      Speculation that the outgoing head of the Special Prosecution may have been involved in an extortion scheme has dealt a huge blow to this once respected body – although some insist the affair at least shows no one is above the law.


      Speculation that the outgoing head of the Special Prosecution may have been involved in an extortion scheme has dealt a huge blow to this once respected body – although some insist the affair at least shows no one is above the law.

      North Macedonia’s outgoing chief Special Prosecutor, Katica Janeva, has remained silent since Monday, when she unexpectedly tendered her resignation and the regular prosecution seized her phone to check possible connections to a high-profile extortion case.

      But Janeva’s silence has only fuelled theories about the reasons for her departure and the seizure of her phone.

      They range from her being the alleged mastermind behind a scheme to extort millions of euros from businessman who had problems with the law to being the innocent victim of her acquaintance with two businessmen detained in connection with the case on Monday.

      In her absence, her colleagues at the Special Prosecution office, SJO, a crime-busting body that was seen as a beacon of hope for restoring the rule of law in North Macedonia, have indirectly distanced themselves from the woman who is still their boss.


      Kamcev recorded Boki 13 calling Janeva on the speakerphone as he was being blackmailed

      URL:


      Prosecutor Vilma Ruskoska, who is leading the charge against showman Bojan Jovanovski – Boki 13 which prompted the resignation of Special Prosecutor Katica Janeva, confirmed that the recorded evidence contains a conversation “with one prosecutor”.

      Ruskoska said that Boki 13 was meeting with a businessman, widely believed to be Jordan Orce Kamcev, and was extorting money from him, promising that he will get the unnamed prosecutor to go easy on Kamcev in a major money laundering case. Kamcev recorded these meetings and the recordings include speakerphone conversations with the prosecutor.

      Ruskoska, who was already proposed by Prime Minister Zoran Zaev to take Janeva’s place, was asked by a journalist whether the evidence includes calls to Katica Janeva.

      Yes, it can be seen and heard on the recordings. I can’t speak in detail about the evidence, but yes, you can hear a conversation with a public prosecutor, Ruskoska said.

      She added that Boki 13 met at least twice with Katica Janeva in her SPO office. Boki 13 reportedly asked for eight million EUR from Kamcev to get Janeva to drop her charges against him, and the sum was later negotiated down to six million, 1.5 million of which were paid. While this was on-going, Kamcev had his passport returned to him, and the case was also struck down, but at the Supreme Court, not through actions of the Special Prosecutor.

      According to the Expres news site, the negotiations between Kamcev and Boki 13 at one point hit a snag when the businessman was not sure that Boki 13 will deliver on his promise to get Katica Janeva to drop her charges against him, and wanted assurances before paying such a huge sum of money. At this point, Janeva was called up and she personally gave her guarantee, the site reports.

      Janeva is still not charged in this case, but she resigned shortly after Boki 13 was arrested on Monday. Police seized one of her phones, while she insisted that she lost the other phone she was using. Her son Lazar Janev, who was working in 1TV, the TV station owned by Boki 13 and allegedly accompanied him on his racketeering runs, defended his mother saying that she lost he phone while on a trip in Belgrade. Lazar Janev also had his personal computer seized by the police.

      Janeva was using the large cache of wiretaps that were given to her in 2015 by SDSM party leader Zoran Zaev to initiate a series of politically driven criminal charges against top officials of the VMRO-DPMNE party, clearing the way for Zaev to grab power in Macedonia. In the process she was declared a hero by both SDSM supporters and many in the international community, while VMRO insisted all along that she is running a rogue operation and is deeply involved in crime and extortion herself.

      In another in the series of interviews she gave, Ruskoska also revealed that Kamcev was asking to meet her while he was still in house arrest, claiming that he is being blackmailed. She agreed that giving the bribe is a crime in itself, but that Kamcev reported the act, which frees him from responsibility.

      Ruskoska again called on other businessmen who were extorted by Boki 13, for the benefit of the “unnamed prosecutor”, to step forward, adding that it is believed people paid significant sums, above half a million EUR, to get the prosecutor to drop her charges against them.

          The fat bitch has always done exactly as she has been told by the government. They'll do everything they can for her not to be locked up together with all those she has sent to prison

            Cars and yachts seized in Ohrid, reportedly in connection with the Katica Janeva scandal

            21.07.2019

            Several media outlets are reporting that the police seized a number of luxury vehicles and yachts in Ohrid. The seizures are reportedly related to the major corruption scandal that brought down Special Prosecutor Katica Janeva.

            Janeva allegedly used her prosecuting powers and proximity to the Zaev Government to blackmail businessmen into paying her millions of euros, using Bojan Jovanovski – Boki 13 as an intermediary.

            The opposition VMRO-DPMNE party asked Prime Minister Zoran Zaev if it is true that some of the luxury vehicles which were taken from the blackmailed businessmen ended up with his family members.

              That country is a gold mine of irony. Seriously Boki f'ing 13? You can't make this stuff up.

              Are people in Macedonia that numb to their surroundings that they don't see that every single person who has ever came to hold any measurable amount of power has screwed them? I still find it unfathomable that there is no popular movement to overthrow the political establishments of both parties. You can't make it through a week without out some kind of scandal and this goes back decades now. How does this not bother anyone there?

              This is the clearest proof yet that both parties are a complete scam. Yet everyone will still go back into their respective corners and point fingers at each other and debate who was the bigger criminal. The governments in Macedonia look more like rival mafia's trying to take over a racketeering ring, rather than democratically elected representatives of the people.

              This shit has to hit the fan at some point, doesn't it?

                You know you've made it as a soulless, extreme far left dystopia when a Frankenstein Transvestite can rise to the very top in the organised crime rankings...the shit will never hit the fan...the fan was dismantled to avoid this very outcome...since identity and everything that contributes to identity was systematically erased, hope was also extinguished...once hope is gone, there's no meaningful purpose left.

                  If the shit hits the fan and the shit spreads, then it will only hit other pre-existing shit. So basically, the shit is already there and nobody sees anything different. Which is pretty shit.

                    Boki 13’s television ends its live broadcasts

                    URL:
                    1TV, the television which Bojan Jovanovski – Boki 13 opened in April 2018, held what the anchors said could be...


                    1TV, the television which Bojan Jovanovski – Boki 13 opened in April 2018, held what the anchors said could be the last evening news today, as its owner remains in detention and is the focus of racketeering charges.

                    The TV station was allegedly used by Boki 13 as one of the means to extort money from businessmen who were targeted by criminal charges brought by his close friend, Special Prosecutor Katica Janeva. Shortly after opening its doors, 1TV began drawing in high profile journalists openly supportive of the ruling SDSM party, who were reportedly drawn by the offer of large salaries. The station strongly supporter Katica Janeva and Prime Minister Zoran Zaev, but was also known for blending a lot of LGBT elements in its entertainment program, which was expected given Boki 13’s flamboyant public persona.

                    The staff was told to take an open-ended vacation, while taped programming will likely continue, until it is determined whether some other owner can take it from Boki 13.

                    After Boki was arrested last Monday, everybody in the first editorial line-up quickly announced they are leaving 1TV, and some even turned on Janeva.

                    This prompted a comical exchange between lawyer Aleksandar Tortevski and 1TV editor Aleksandar Comovski, who was famously present during the 2011 closure of A1TV, the much better established Velija Ramkovski owned television which collapsed under similar allegations of fraud and tax evasion and also caused a political crisis. Tortevski asked Comovski how was it that nobody in 1TV thought to ask Boki 13 where he got all that money needed to start a TV station and meet the demands of top journalist talent.

                      Only in farking fyrom can one corrupt party replace another corrupt party on the basis of corruption, and then the same corrupt government officials send homos to collect cash for extortion purposes from corrupt business officials. The installation of the zz government was always about fyrom changing its name and denying its history for the sake of joining NATO and not about corruption and democracy. You cant make this stuff up, this is insane.

                      Where are those fag fyromers critisizing the diaspora when we went out on the streets to protest selling our name and soul? Making derogatory comments towards us.. ffs Janeva was appointed by the EU.

                        After several hours of questioning, the Criminal Court has ordered a 30-day detention for Katica Janeva as a third suspect in the “Racket” case.

                        She has the right to appeal through her lawyers to the criminal council.

                        The Prosecutor’s Office for prosecution of organized crime and corruption requested her detention.

                            Article is a bit old though a good read from la verita, the source of racket case.


                            La Verità journalist Laris Gaiser released Sunday morning new video relating to the Macedonia’s “Racket” case. Here what he says in the new video:
                            La Verità’s recent publications of audio and video recordings related to the racketeering activities in Macedonia in recent years, involving the Special Prosecutor’s Office led by Katica Janeva, has turned into a real political and social earthquake. Our newsroom, as well as the undersigned, was flooded on a daily basis with thousands of messages of support and appreciation. There were hardly any criticisms and threats that are usually encountered in such cases. On the site, on the subject of foreign policy, we have surpassed over a million contacts. We can say that La Verità has served as information platform to the Macedonian nation, shaking off some stagnant situations and restoring the confidence of a nation reduced to constant isolation, which the EU seems to have condemned in order to achieve a plan to limit the country sovereignty. The Macedonians are a proud nation, disappointed with corruption, and suffer even more when the situation, even only indirectly, is supported by the EU.

                            It should be noted that precisely J.C. Juncker and Mogherini insisted strongly on the special prosecutor. That is why the sensational revelations of our paper have caused both internal and external tensions. Internally, the opposition led by H. Mickoski claims that La Verità has publicly demonstrated to the wider audience evidence of a vast political and judicial octopus that Prime Minister Zoran Zaev should take into account and resign. He (ZZ) has so far commented on the case only via a Facebook post where he says the characters have abused his name. From the prison where he is precisely because of the “Racket” case analyzed by us, Boki 13 responded to him, through a Serbian newspaper, that if he tried to kill him, evidence of Zaev’s involvement was with his mother. From an international point of view, except for the fact that our revelations were reported by numerous media outlets, including media from Germany, Albania, Serbia and Slovenia – the first to respond was France. The country’s ambassador said that Macedonian authorities should give clear answers to the scandal revealed by us, before Brussels begins analyzing Macedonia’s approach to the EU. And the most shocking message – total silence came precisely from the Union that we thought should be reexamined a few years ago because, through Mogherini, it was the main sponsor of the SPO and of many international traumas inflicted on Macedonia.

                            Regardless of the summer period, thousands of EU internal affairs staff, 220 of which are in the Skopje delegation, failed to submit any institutional report in hopes of quickly clarifying the facts. Brussels’ order to remain silent and to avoid further damage to its image must have been conveyed in a crystal clear manner. So clear that it became clear to Doris Pack that something was wrong, a decade-long parliamentarian in charge of enlargement in the Balkans and without any doubt one of the most powerful political figures from the CDU and Germany, and a current EPP representative. Doris Pack strongly urged Saturday the Union’s foreign services, demanding an immediate response and wondering how Mogherini could remain silent about the criminal reality revealed by the third video posted on La Verità’s site.

                            In 2015, it was the EU that insisted on the SPO, which did much harm to the Macedonian people. Today, those in the EU are obliged to respond, especially to those within the Macedonian administration who have risked their lives in the past months helping us publish the material, convinced that it is still possible to have a real democracy based on informed public opinion and control of politicians. As far as we are concerned, we continue to evaluate the specificity and legal feasibility of potentially publishing other audio material. For the time being, we hope that the Macedonian people can finally get real support from foreign capitals, which have so far run policies from the shadows.

                              So many questions

                              How did DPMNE get the recordings? Last time around it was assumed Zaev got them from German or British intelligence.

                              Are they genuine? Everyone knew Zaev was involved so I'm sure they are genuine.

                              Will the condom throwers show up again? They were apparently very anti corruption, lets see how anti corruption they really are.

                              Pretty convenient timing a month or so before upcoming elections. What does this mean for the election.

                              If you step back and take in the whole picture, what a sad state of affairs it is. One party gets ousted a couple years ago for corruption, and not even a full mandate in this party is facing the exact same allegations. If you are a voter, your choice is between those who were corrupt and those who are corrupt. Its shocking that no one else can gain any traction as a political party. With those choices you would think it should be easy.

                              I wouldn't get too excited about DPMNE getting back into power. First its going to be tough, with SDS now being a "multi ethnic" party they have the Albanian vote locked down. Even if DPMNE won the election they would still need the Albanian parties to form a coalition. Which like always means the Albanians get more concessions so that either party can form a government. Albanians win Macedonians lose. Then even if DPMNE forms a coalition, gives the Albanians more concessions, they have completely backtracked from annulling the Prespa agreement anyway.

                              So to sum it up, we lose either way, the Albanians get more privileges, the Prespa agreement stands. What do we get? Fresh old faces occupying the political sofa.

                                Sadly DPmNE is like the chushka calling the piperka a pepper.

                                The timing for all of this seems a little opportune.

                                One would imagine the time is ripe for a new party to arise. But, no, it's Severedonia we're talking about.
