“Macedonian police have issued an arrest warrant for former Prime Minister Nikola Gruevski, who has been convicted and sentenced to a two-year prison term on corruption-related charges.

Interior Ministry spokesman Toni Angelovski said the warrant for Gruevski’s arrest was issued November 12 following court instructions.

Judges on November 9 rejected Gruevski’s final appeal against his serving the sentence.” (RFE/RL)
