November 15 (BTA) – The Bulgarian Justice Ministry
refuted publications that former Macedonian prime minister
Nikola Gruevski fled to Hungary with a Bulgarian passport.
The Justice Ministry said on Thursday that Gruevski does not
have a Bulgarian citizenship, not has he applied for such.
Data of the Interior Ministry show that Gruevski has not been
issued a Bulgarian passport.

after he failed to appear to serve a two-year prison sentence
for misuse of influence rendered in October. RY/
