A public prosecutor has ordered detention for five people and home detention for one man after a police operation held on Saturday to bust a drug ring. Charges have been filed against eight people from Prilep, Bitola and the village of Aracinovo, the Public Prosecutor's Office of Macedonia said Sunday in a press release. “The men are charged with illegal production and trafficking of drugs... One of the suspects is also charged with money laundering,” it stated. Two suspects are still at large, the Public Prosecutor’s Office noted. On Saturday, the Ministry of the Interior carried out an operation against an organised criminal gang, which has been suspected of drug trafficking across Macedonia for a longer period of time.
