WHO DID IT?
11 years after the assasination attempt on Macedonia's ex-president there is still no one founded guilty or any suspect.
Certainly we all can remember the 3th october of 1995 when near Hotel Bristol on Makedonija street in Skopje a remote car bomb exploded at the moment Kiro Gligorov's car passed near by. The explosion killed Gligorov's driver and a pedestrian.
Gligorov survived with heavy injuries, he recovered several months before he returned to his presidential function untill the end of his mandate.
Research haven't brought any result however there were several speculations; According to the Croatian newspaper Vjesnik, the exploding car had an implemented land mine, one used by the Yugoslavian army and days before the assassination attempt, Gligorov had a meeting with Slobodan Milošević.
At the end the two presidents did not come to a fruitful dialogue, leading to speculation that the Yugoslav leader was involved.
Nothing is proven and there is no official research anymore, except in the media.
MD: It was a terrible thing that happened that 3th October, maybe it comes out who did this in the next 50 years.
Btw, did you know the 2000 Guinness book of World Records lists Kiro Gligorov as the oldest ever president of a country?
