Mace­do­nian ex-prime min­is­ter loses ap­peal

The Western Star - - WORLD -

SKOPJE, Mace­do­nia — A for­mer Mace­do­nian prime min­is­ter on Fri­day lost his fi­nal ap­peal against serv­ing a two-year prison sen­tence over cor­rup­tion-re­lated charges.

A panel of judges at the Skopje crim­i­nal court said in a state­ment that they rejected Nikola Gruevski’s ap­peal af­ter “re­view­ing all the facts and ev­i­dence” in the case.

It was not im­me­di­ately clear whether Gruevski in­tended to hand him­self in to au­thor­i­ties to serve the sen­tence.
