North Macedonia: North Macedonian Ex-Prosecutor and a TV Star Jailed in Corruption Case

A North Macedonian court jailed on Thursday the country’s former anti-corruption prosecutor for misuse of office and her collaborator, a controversial ex-reality star and businessman, for corruption that resulted in the release of the country’s richest man from detention.

The former head of the Special Prosecution, Katica Janeva, was sentenced to seven years in the so-called Racket case, while Bojan Jovanovski, alias Boki 13, was sentenced to nine years, North Macedonia’s Meta news outlet reported.

The Racket saga started in July last year when Boki 13 and his security chief, businessman Zoran Milevski, were arrested at the Greek border trying to leave North Macedonia with €1.5 million (US$1.68 million) stuffed into a Louis Vuitton bag.
