Court of First Instance in Skopje has quashed the evidence submitted in the so called wiretapping affair against PM Nikola Gruevski, former Interior Minister, Gordana Jankulovska and former head of Secret Services, Saso Mijalkov and other persons.

According to the court ruling, the evidence is groundless, as it has been secured in an illegal way and that they cannot be investigated.

This ruling is based on article 93 of the law on criminal procedure.

Leader of the Macedonian opposition has offered to prosecution several cases relating to the wiretapping affair, a part of which were presented to the public opinion as the so called “bombs”.

The registered conversations of the heads of the state, especially PM Nikola Gruevski and his collaborators, threw light on abuses, criminal activities, offenses and other illegal acts.

According to the June 2 political agreement, in spite of the court ruling, the wiretapping affair will be handled by the Special Prosecutor, who is expected to be elected on September 15. /ibna/
