A judge of a preliminary procedure from the Basic Criminal Court Skopje accepted the proposal of the Prosecutor's Office, and ordered a 30-day detention for the driver who drove him from Serbia to Turkey. Ljupco Palevski – Palco, prime suspect in the murder of the 14-year-old Vanja Gjorchevska and 73-year-old Panče Žežovski from Veles, confirmed by the Criminal Court.

His detention was ordered due to the possibility of escape.

The Basic Public Prosecutor's Office Skopje previously announced that an order was passed to conduct an investigative procedure for the driver of Palco.

As informed by OJO Skopje, in the period from 01.12.2023 to 03.12.2023, the suspect helped Palevski not to be detected for two crimes - Kidnapping under Article 141 of the Criminal Code, as well as two murders in a brutal manner (one of a minor and one of favoritism) jointly punishable under Article 123 paragraph 3 of the Criminal Code, providing him with transportation by car.

"Now the suspect, after prior communication and agreement with the perpetrator who was in the Republic of Serbia, headed to Belgrade with a Land Rover vehicle with Strumica registration marks, owned by a legal entity. There he met the perpetrator and together with the vehicle they headed towards the border of Serbia with Bulgaria - Kalotina border crossing. They crossed the border on 02.12.2023, moving through the territory of the Republic of Bulgaria, on the same day they arrived at the border with Turkey, border crossing Kapitan Andreevo, and entered Turkey. They were there together until 03.12.2023, after which the perpetrator stayed, and now the suspect headed with the vehicle through Greece to this country, where he was detained at the Star Dojran border crossing", say the Skopje Public Prosecutor's Office.

From there, they also inform that for another person who was detained for 24 hours in the police station since yesterday, a notification has been delivered to the Skopje Public Prosecutor's Office. The Public Prosecutor has assessed that at this moment there are no legal grounds for security measures to be proposed, however, the checks for his possible involvement in a criminal-legal event continue, reports the Skopje Public Prosecutor's Office.
