The former minister of transport and communications in the government of Nikola Gruevski, Mile Janakieski, is released today after six years in prison.

In the period from 13.11.2018 to 17.6, Janakieski was in detention and house arrest several times. In July last year, he was first in Idrizovo, and then in Shutka.
