“E-mails with bomb threats are sent from outside, through VPN addresses and created virtual e-mails. For the investigation, we have to go through international legal assistance, we get the information from the internet providers, and forward it to the terrorism department,” said the Minister of Internal Affairs, Oliver Spasovski, in “24 Analysis” on TV24.
He added that the partner services from NATO, Interpol and Europol are also involved in the investigation and providing information.
“It is characteristic that the threats happen on Wednesdays, Thursdays and Fridays. A second characteristic is that it is only in a certain shift of students and teachers. These are part of the things that are being analyzed,” said Spasovski.
Spasovski said that all reports so far are false, but on each of them must be acted upon, because there are protocols that cannot be exempted.
“The contents of the emails are different. Today they wrote that they allegedly wanted to negotiate. But there are no negotiations with terrorists,” said Spasovski.
Very soon the investigation regarding the false bomb threats will be over and we will have information.
“There are many facts in the investigation withthe false bomb threats that are being established. Why in Skopje, why first in JSP, then in high schools? We will share all the information and conclusions when the investigation is finished,” said the Minister of Internal Affairs, Oliver Spasovski, in “24 analysis” on TV24.
He added that it is important to maintain a calm approach for everyone despite the anxiety and uncertainty and urged not to politicize this case.
“Such cases don’t happen only in North Macedonia. Such cases also occur in the United States and in other NATO and EU member states,” said Spasovski.
The minister added that as soon as all the facts and all the data are determined, in cooperation with the public prosecutor’s, it will be made public and everything will be transparently announced.
