Veles court confirms the sentence of 2,5 years for the deposed bishop Vraniskovski.

This is a confirmation of the decision brought in 2009 when Vraniskovski was tried in absentia.

The hearing was postponed several times due to health conditions of the deposed bishop or requests for additional time by the defense.

Vraniskovski is charged of misuse of church money. He was arrested on December 12th at the border crossing Medzitlija when he was attempting to enter Macedonia.

The deposed bishop was sentenced to two and a half years in prison in October 2009, and to return about 250.000 euros.

At the request of prosecutors, Vraniskovski will remain in prison until validation of the sentence.
