Over 23 thousand individuals in the former Yugoslav Republic of Macedonia have had their accounts frozen, due to the failure to pay TV and Radio license.

Since the early hours of the morning, many people have swarmed the tax directorate to demand for their accounts to be unblocked.

But this directorate insists that the citizens should pay this tax before unblocking their account.

TV and Radio license costs 3 euros a month, but on the other hand Macedonian Radio and Television continues to face debts, although it secures incomes through this tax. The debts that this company owes to institutions and other companies is over 2 million euros. /ibna/
