The prosecutor’s office of North Macedonia also has evidence of possible abuses by customs officials

The Macedonian bus that crashed fatally last November in our country had false documents for the international transport of passengers. This is clear from publications in Macedonian media, reports BTA. In the serious accident with the bus of the Besa Trans company on the Struma highway on November 23, 2021, 45 passengers, citizens of the Republic of North Macedonia, died and seven were injured.

The Prosecutor’s Office in Skopje filed an indictment against Bekim Hajiu and the company “Besa Trans” for falsifying documents. It’s about falsification of a permit for international public transport, the Macedonian media reported. The prosecutor’s office claims that through a false document and with the help of the company’s hired drivers, Hajiu manipulated the license and illegally performed international transport services.

“The accused, as the head of the company, using the same course of action, the same opportunities and under similar circumstances, through the drivers who drove the company’s buses, is used the forged documents as real ones. The Ministry of Transport and Communications did not issue such a document – Confirmation of a license for public transport in international traffic – for the bus, and the manager / owner / of the company prepared a fake document, which he gave to the drivers and then they crossed the state border with the fake document. From 10.01.2021 to 21.11.2021 the bus has passed over 20 times through several border crossings in the same way,” said the prosecutor’s office. From there, they also provided sufficient evidence of possible abuses by the customs officials, who allowed the bus to travel with a false document.

The evidence obtained from a previous procedure related to the actions of the customs services at the border points, which are obliged to check the confirmations for transport permits, will be handed over to the departmental prosecutor, the prosecutor’s office emphasized.
