Special prosecution in FYROM has launched today a new investigation code names “Fortress” which relates to unlawful surveillance.

Two former heads of the Unit for Security and Counterintelligence at the ministry of Interior are the main suspects of this investigation. In 2015, along with the minister of Interior of that time, they have destroyed surveillance equipment by causing a 10 million euro damage.

This case was made public today by prosecutor Lence Ristoska, who said that officials of the Ministry of Interior are suspected of being involved in this affair.

She said that these are two systems which carry out surveillance, while explaining the way these systems have been destroyed.

Special Prosecution which was established a year ago to investigate cases that were unfolded in the wiretapping affair, have so far launched several investigation, such as “Titanic” for electoral irregularities and “Torture” for the arrest and unlawful sentencing of former Interior minister and leader of “Obedineti” party, Lube Boskosk, who in 2011 was accused of illegal funding of the electoral campaign of that time. /ibna/
