While we were there, around 07:00 p.m. he started receiving calls and issuing orders to MoI commanders related to the incidents in the Parliament. After this, we took him to the Interior Ministry, where we remained till 11:00 p.m. after which Cavkov asked us to take him to the headquarters of VMRO-DPMNE to meet then Health Minister Nikola Todorov. While at MoI, Cavkovk was contacting police commanders and was issuing orders. He did the same with the police officers present in the ministry at that time,” said Dimitrievski, not specifying what kind of orders Cavkovk was issuing. Judge Dobrila Kacarska asked the witness how is it possible to not remember the orders Cavkov issues to which he replied that it has been long time since the events and he cannot recall.
