Latest Developments in TNT Case

Former Gazi Baba Mayor Toni Trajkovski, who’s among the defendants in the TNT case, will be taken to the Criminal Court by a guard on Wednesday because of his failure to appear at the start of the trial on Tuesday. Judge Ognen Stavrev said the Court considered him properly invited even though the ex-Mayor’s lawyer, Jovica Strasevski, stated that his client hadn’t received an invitation. “If he continues this way, there will be even stricter measures,” Stavrev said. The same day, he presented the new composition, which now includes tree new lay judges, including a reserve one. Former PM Nikola Gruevski and ex-Minister of Transport and Communications Mile Janakieski, too, are among the defendants in the case, which concerns the demolition of the Cosmos complex.
