Interview with Ljube Boshkovski
by Christopher Deliso in Macedonia
January 24, 2002

Skopje, Macedonia – Ljube Boshkovski is Minister of the Interior for Macedonia, and is currently one of his country’s most popular leaders. Young and energetic, Boshkovski has won the favor of the people and most of all the police, due to his „hands on“ approach to governing. He is one of the few ministers who gets out into the community to assess for himself what are the challenges facing Macedonia. Mr. Boshkovski is also popular for his tough, no-nonsense attitude to Albanian extremism. In a government that has been criticized for failing to take resolute, unwavering action against the NLA, the Interior Minister stands out. Whether one agrees with his viewpoints or not, Ljube Boshkovski is unquestionably one of the most important figures in Macedonian political life today. Sparing euphemisms in favor of candor, Mr. Boshkovski’s comments provide a sober view of the realities facing Macedonia today.

I spoke with Mr. Boshkovski in his spacious offices at the Ministry of the Interior. It was already evening, and I was informed that he was tired out after a long day. Nevertheless, after attentively peeling a kiwi fruit, Mr. Boshkovski fielded my questions on the pressing issues of the day for Macedonia.

CD: First of all, for the foreign readers who may not be familiar with your career, can you tell me something about your background and previous positions?

LB: First, for almost two years I was Deputy Director of the Public Safety/Police. After that, I became State Secretary in the Ministry of the Interior. Now, I have been Minister of the Interior since May 2001. I am a lawyer by training.

CD: You are currently enjoying great popularity with the Macedonian public. Recently I saw you on television, surrounded by enthusiastic students, when you answered their concerns with a promise for better student housing. This would be an example of one of the „normal things“ that the government can return to, in the absence of war. To what extent has Macedonia been able to return to normal life?

LB: The answer, unfortunately, is not very much. Due to the situation, we are maximally dedicated to the security of the state. The most important thing for Macedonia now is the reintegration of the areas which are still not under control – meaning returning the Macedonian police to these areas. So there has only been a little bit of normalization.

CD: Is this new group, the Albanian National Army (ANA), distinct from the National Liberation Army (NLA)?

LB: The situation is, there are still groups of Albanian extremists from Kosovo, who are the same as the extremists from Macedonia. And they are always finding a reason not to have peace. They have only one aim – to create an unstable situation, which is good for the establishment of unstable businesses. That is, the trading in drugs, weapons, prostitutes, etc. Therefore, we can’t distinguish between these bandits, because in their essence they are the same… and the also have the same personnel.

CD: You have gained a reputation as being tough, and not compromising when it comes to the NLA. How does this affect your relationship with the international community?

LB: The international community is here on the invitation of the Macedonian authorities, and of course Macedonia – and we as leaders – are constantly requesting the international community to take an objective approach. But unfortunately it happens often for us that we are equalized, are equated with those who created aggression against the Republic of Macedonia. For us, it’s important to deny these suspicions, and I think we are succeeding. Now, our relations with the international community seem to be improving.

CD: Since when?

LB: Since after the adoption of the constitutional changes and the Framework Agreement. But this (improved relationship) is not having a huge impact for the situation on the ground. Mostly, it has been just verbal support, and unfortunately during the crisis and during the biggest attacks, we weren’t getting the biggest support we could from the international community.

USA-Depeschen: die Behörden in Skopje fachen „Klima der Angst“ an

US secret diplomatic cables seen by EurActiv and Bivol.bg, a Bulgarian investigative journalism website, speak about Gruevski and his entourage from the ruling VMRO-DPMNE party (see ‚Background‘) instigating a climate of fear in the EU candidate country [Cable REF: 09SKOPJE601].

US Ambassador Philip T. Reeker, who has occupied his post in Skopje since September 2008, writes in a cable dated December 2009 that Gruevski’s government is using a catch-all corruption charge of „abuse of office“ or „misuse of official position“ against members of the political elite in Macedonia.

Highly-publicised arrests, detentions or investigations of current and former ministers, party members and the opposition have put pressure on the political elite in Macedonia to refrain from challenging or criticising Gruevski’s government, Reeker writes.

9. (C) The political influence of Gruevski on the judicial
and policing arms of the government is no secret. This latest
spate of public arrests, accusations, and indictments shows a
definite spike in such interference and manipulation. We have
received an increasing number of complaints about late night
„informative talks“ with the police and threats from the
government about possible „corruption charges“ that may be
investigated should people chose to defy the government or
speak out. Meanwhile, there is no action against Gruevski’s insiders widely reputed to be corrupt, such as intelligence director Sasho Majalkov (also Gruevski’s cousin) and Minister or Transport and Communications Mile Janakieski. It is
possible that Gruevski is lashing out as he feels especially
vulnerable now. International and domestic pressures are
building to solve the „name issue“ with Greece or face the
prospect of not being able to commence EU membership
negotiations, despite receiving a favorable report from the
EU commission (see REFTEL). These cases distract public
attention away from the name issue and give Gruevski an
enhanced sense of control. We will continue to use our
influence judiciously to counteract this tendency, in
specific cases when warranted. More broadly, we and the other
international actors here keep pressing for practical
measures to increase judicial independence, police and
prosecutorial professionalism, and promote rule of law.

    Former Macedonian Police Minister Jailed

    The court in Skopje on Tuesday jailed Ljube Boskoski for seven years for illegally financing his political campaign and abusing his position as head of a small opposition party.

    Boskoski’s defence described the heavy sentence as absurd and the defendant said he would take the verdict to Strasbourg.

    “I will ask for justice in the Court in Strasbourg, [the European Court for Human Rights],” was Boskoski’s response on hearing the verdict.

    During a two-month trial Boskoski pleaded not guilty to all charges and insisted that the case was politically motivated.

    Police arrested Boskoski one day after the June 5 general election in which his opposition right-wing United for Macedonia Party failed to win a single seat.

    They said they had found €100,000 in cash, in his posession after arresting him in a Skopje restaurant, which took place in front of TV cameras.

    The court reached its verdict after hearing the closing arguments on November 18.

    The key testimony, given by a protected witness for the prosecution, took place on November 16. The witness testified via a conference video call in a courtroom into which media were not allowed.

    The defence did not accept the testimony, saying the witness might have been instructed about what to say and they had no way to check his assertions.

    During the trial, Boskoski’s lawyer, Danco Nakov, told the court that he suspected the key protected witness was a police agent, and that the €100,000 that he had given to Boskoski on the day of his arrest came from the state budget, used in order to frame his client.

    Boskoski’s party claims that he is being targeted for his harsh criticism of the government of Nikola Gruevski’s ruling VMRO DPMNE party. During the election campaign the former VMRO member accused Gruevski of institutionalizing crime and corruption in the country.

    In the final days of the campaign, Boskoski accused the Prime Minister of secretly purchasing a yacht in Croatia while trying to portray himself as a humble politician.

    Boskoski’s wife, Violeta, looked shaken and distressed after hearing the verdict. “He fought for Macedonia and you sentenced him!” she shouted at the court.

    Boskoski was a police minister from 2001 to 2002 during a short-lived but violent armed conflict between the security forces and ethnic Albanian insurgents.

    He was later acquitted of war crimes before the International Criminal Tribunal for Former Yugoslavia, ICTY, in The Hague.

    Boskoski’s friendship with Gruevski ended in 2009 when VMRO DPMNE failed to back his ambition to becoming president of the republic in the elections that year.

    Meanwhile, a parliamentary group tasked with investigating whether police broke the law while eavesdropping on Boskoski prior to his arrest was formed last week after several delays caused by the failure of VMRO DPMNE to appoint a delegate to the group.
