Jovan Vraniskovski was dismissed from Idrizovo Prison around 5 p.m. today. Zivko Pejkovski, the Manager of the prison stated that he was handed over the decision from the Basic Court in Skopje at about 4:30 p.m. today.
Vraniskovski was released on parole after the Appellate Court rejected the appeal of the Public Prosecutor for prosecution for organized crime and corruption as unjustified. He was released on parole by the Director of the Idrizovo Prison because he already served more than half of his prison sentence, the re-socialization was accomplished and he was in bad health condition.
Vraniskovski parole expires on 23 March 2012 according to the Decision of the Criminal Court in Skopje.
