Former Macedonian Interior Miniter Held for Abuse of Office

A former Macedonian Interior Minister, Ljube Boskoski (pictured here), was arrested on Monday after allegedly being found with a revolver and 100,000 in cash in a bag in his car. A court in Skopje ruled that Mr. Boskoski would be held for 30 days pending a trial on suspicion that he unlawfully financed a political campaign and abused his position as party leader.

Mr. Boskoski was the Interior Minister between 1998 and 2002 and is currently heading the United for Macedonia party, although the party failed to win even one seat in Sunday’s parliamentary election.
