FYROM: Former PM Gruevski has escaped to Hungary

FYROM’s former PM, Nikola Gruevski has announced that he’s in Brussels. Gruevski has done this through a posting on Facebook, where he has written: “In the recent days, I have received lots of life threats. Now I’m in Budapest where I’ve requested political asylum from Hungarian authorities. I shall always remain faithful to the Macedonian cause”, Gruevski wrote on his profile.

Meanwhile, the former PM is known for his ties with Hungarian PM Viktor Orban, who several months ago had invited him for a visit to Budapest, but this was not made possible due to the seizure of his passport by the authorities. Police in FYROM have issued an arrest warrant for Gruevski, as he is supposed to suffer a two year prison sentence concerning a corruption case. /ibna/
