Over 85 thousand people in FYROM may have their bank accounts frozen for failing to pay their TV license fee. According to the law, every month, each household is obliged to pay a 2,5 euros fee which goes to the account of the Macedonian Radio Television.

But thousands of people do not pay it, saying that the public network doesn’t broadcast anything interesting for the citizens and that it promotes government policies.

In its official page, the Taxation Department published the list of 87 thousand people who may risk to have their bank accounts frozen.

According this department, citizens of Skopje, Tetovo, Manastir and Shtip are the places where the percentage of people that that pay the TV license fee is the lowest./balkaneu.com/
