Skopje, January 31, 2014/Balkan Independent News Agency
Mayor of Center commune in Skopje, Andrej Zhernovski declared today that the monument of the Serb king Tsar Dushan in Skopje has been placed with the only scope of causing problems and incidents. Zhernovski is one of the leaders of Macedonian opposition, who won in the central commune of Skopje, where “Skopje 2014” project is being implemented.
He accused prime minister Nikola Gruevski for all the negative developments and these monuments. Center commune says that the current government is placing many monuments which are unlawful.
“Gruevski may say whatever he wants. Every unlawful construction will be demolished. Monument of Tsar Dushan has been placed with the only scope of causing incidents”, said Zhernovski.
He said that he will seek assistance by police in order to displace the unlawful monuments, amongst which is that of Tsar Dushan, but according to him, it’s not known how police will react.
A few days ago, prime minister Nikola Gruevski said that the monument of Tsar Dushan has been lawfully placed there.
The placement of this monument in Skopje caused many polemics and problems, while nobody has accepted responsibility for its placement in such a long time. /ibna/
