SDSM said they would press charges against Prime Minister Nikola Gruevski for unauthorized recording and tapping after a video appeared on You Tube a couple of days ago, which was later aired by televisions channels and reposted by online media outlets, showing opposition leader Zaev confirming at a meeting with the prime minister he had comprising material obtained from a foreign spy service.
At a press conference Tuesday, SDSM spokesperson Petre Silegov invoked Articles 151 and 152 of the Criminal Code, according to which unauthorized tapping and recording is not allowed and therefore the prime minister should be held accountable.
"If there were any special investigation measures in place, a criminal offence was committed under Articles 360 and 360a of the Criminal Code—leaking of confidential information. Now it is the Public Prosecution's turn to act. Let us see what they will do now," Silegov said.
Governing VMRO-DPMNE called on the relevant authorities to find out who made the video of Gruevski's meeting with Zaev, who published it and whether its publication was lawful.
