INTELLIGENCE OFFICERS GET SACKED
The military intelligence chief of Macedonia has been sacked, Macedonia’s defense minister said yesterday. Lazar Elenovski said military intelligence failed to prevent the new weapons from leaving army warehouses.
The defense minister said another two senior military intelligence officers were also removed. Macedonian police seized three trucks loaded with undocumented weapons two weeks ago and arrested four Bulgarian men on smuggling charges.
"More details including the Defense Ministry's stance and the concrete measures that the Ministry will take will be announced soon. We need more time to wrap up the investigation and collect all information," Defense Minister Lazar Elenovski said.
MD: All because of when the police seized a consignment of army weapons allegedly being smuggled to Bulgaria last week.
