Kocani Mayor Papazov Charged with Abuse of Official Position Authority

Kocani Mayor Ljupco Papazov has been charged with abuse of official position and authority.

As the Interior Ministry said on Monday, on 6 December 2021, for the first time, he appointed S.Z. acting head-teacher of Goso Vikentiev Secondary School and continued to name him for the third and fourth time, even though he had the duty to know that the person hadn’t passed the head-teacher’s exam within the legal deadline of one year and didn’t meet the criteria.

With his action, he enabled the person to obtain illegal property benefit of around 63,552 denars.
