MoFA Files Report about Misinformation of FM Dimitrov’s alleged Resignation

The Ministry of Foreign Affairs has filed a report to the Interior Ministry and the Public Prosecutor’s Office involving a forgery and possible misuse of an institution and a manner for communication in connection to a fake resignation letter of Foreign Minister Nikola Dimitrov, which was leaked on Monday, Interior Minister Oliver Spasovski told a news conference Tuesday. 24 News TV, a Skopje-based television station, reported that the Macedonian Foreign Minister had stepped down after Sunday’s failed referendum in which the citizens didn’t accept the deal with Greece. Minister Dimitrov is one of the signatories of the agreement. The Foreign Ministry (MoFA) reacted to the news immediately issuing a statement to the media to ‘condemn in the strongest possible terms any malicious attempts for spreading fake news.’ “After a report was filed, we will get to the bottom of this. It’s important to establish the facts. Fake news and hate speech have become something information is based on,” Interior Minister Spasovski said.
