Former head of the Intelligence Agency in FYR Macedonia, Slobodan Bogoevski was sent to prison last night, after being convicted for his participation in the “Spy” case, along with a network of people who are accused of collaboration with secret services and the sale of secret information.

Bogoevski was awaiting the ruling of the Supreme Court on his acquittal. The Court of Appeal had sentenced him to two years in prison. Bogoevski was charged with money laundering, as Bogoevski was collaborator of the Slovenian company “Merkator” and through this company, he had entered several fictitious business agreements and suspicious transactions, which damaged the state budget through tax evasion. Bogoevski is also one of the defendants in the “Spy” case. He was head of the Intelligence Agency during the independence of FYROM. /ibna/
