The Internal Audit, Criminal Investigations and Professional Standards Division has launched an investigation into the cause of the baffling disparity between the 400.000 passports originally ordered and the 20.000 delivered since mid-February.

The Minister of Internal Affairs, Panče Toškovski, said yesterday that as of the 18th of this month, 400 passport forms should have arrived in Macedonia. The initial contract was amended by a certain act in December, so instead of 400 thousand, the supplier had the obligation to deliver 22 thousand forms.

Thelma, seeking answers from the ministry, received a short answer that there is currently an investigation by the Department for Internal Control, Criminal Investigations and Professional Standards regarding the contract for the purchase of travel documents.
