Filipce Outraged by Public Health Centre Director’s Behaviour

Thursday afternoon, Health Minister Venko Filipce sent an open message through his Facebook profile to the director of the Centre for Public Health, Arben Ziberi, in which he said that he would not allow political point gathering at the expense of the epidemic. The President of the State Commission for Prevention of Corruption Biljana Ivanovska says that there are no legal obstacles for the dismissal of the Director Ziberi. Filipce announced that he will consult with lawyers and if possible, he will change the director of the Centre for Public Health – Skopje. This comes after Ziberi wrote on his Facebook profile that he influenced the decision to open the borders without any restrictions, after which he called on the Albanian emigrants to return to Macedonia to vote for an Albanian Prime Minister. Filipce explains that such statement was incorrect and inappropriate for a doctor.
