Today I would like to dedicate the press conference to a health scandal, which obviously happened in December 2020. What is it about? Today in Macedonia arrived information from foreign media why Macedonia is among the last countries in the world in terms of procurement of vaccines and immunization of the population, said Antonio Milososki, member of the EC of VMRO-DPMNE.

-Today, unfortunately, we learn that the race for commissions was more important than the procurement of vaccines. What Zaev and Filipce tried to do with the vaccines in December 2020, instead of following a regular procedure for procurement of vaccines through state channels, is to hire a phantom company with a company registered in Hong Kong. So our main question today is what is the name of the phantom company registered in Hong Kong and how the Ministry of Health chose this company to mediate in the procurement of Chinese vaccines.” La Verita” reports that for the first time China has refused to cooperate with the Ministry of Health and the Macedonian Government due to the fact that the Minister of Health requested that the procurement be through a suspicious company. Asked by reporters today, Prime Minister Zaev said that that private company was “Power China” or “Sinohydro”. But what can be seen in the register of these companies is that neither “Sinohydro” nor “Power China” are registered in Hong Kong. Nor do they apply to phantom companies, he said.

Milososki further says: “Therefore, the question to Zaev and Filipce is how they chose the phantom company from Hong Kong and why the procurement of vaccines should have gone through this company, and whether a bank guarantee was given, and whether there is a preliminary agreement with the Ministry of Health.”

– What is tragic in the whole situation is that from December 2020 until today almost three months have passed, in those three months in Macedonia we have no vaccines, we only have an increased number of infected and unfortunately our fellow citizens who lost their lives in fighting the pandemic. Therefore, we believe that such behavior through phantom companies should be held accountable not only in terms of the Criminal Code but also in terms of the risk to which citizens and public health are brought by doing wrong and not carrying about the procurement of vaccines, he said.
