North Macedonia: Former top prosecutor jailed on corruption charges

Skopje, North Macedonia A former anti-corruption prosecutor has been sentenced to seven years in prison in North Macedonia for accepting bribes and luxury gifts under a robbery scheme.

55-year-old Kaitika was found guilty in Geneva on Thursday and ordered to suspend his arrest as part of an appeal. He denied any wrongdoing.

High-level cases of corruption have fueled years of political upheaval in northern Macedonia and have been called a significant obstacle to the country's hopes of joining the European Union.

A TV personality, recording artist, and businessman named Bojan Jovanovski have been sentenced to nine years under a robbery scheme.

Jovanovski was convicted of using his influence with Geneva and awarded nearly 50,000 euros ($ 56,000).
