Consul of honor of FYROM in Peru arrested

Skopje, September 5, 2013

Peruvian police arrested last week the consul of honor of FYR Macedonia in this Latin-American country. The consul in question is Dejan Atanasovski, who was also filmed by a local Peruvian network about the event for which he was arrested.

According to the TV network, Atanasovski has maltreated his neighbors in their home. “Revolted neighbors have called police for protection, but the consul has also attacked police”, has reported “Frecuencia Latina” TV network.

According to the news which has been published, the consul has been known to police for similar cases of violence and repressive reactions. Foreign Ministry in Skopje has reacted today in relation to the incident, stressing that the case with the consul is a scenario orchestrated by the Peruvian independent TV network to ruin his image as a diplomat. Foreign Ministry declared that Atanasovski has engaged his lawyer to sue the Peruvian TV network. /ibna/
