Ambassadors Approached over Bulgarian Arrest in Macedonia

A case of a Bulgarian seized in Skopje in alleged violation of his rights has reached Belgian Ambassador to Bulgaria Philippe Beke.

Nationalist leader Krassimir Karakachanov, head of VMRO-BND, met Tuesday with the Belgian diplomat to introduce him into the case.

Yovan Stoyanovski, Bulgarian citizen, was arrested in Macedonia in a move - illegal according to VMRO activists - that adds to a series of "anti-Bulgarian behaviour" on the side of Macedonian authorities.

Last week the Bulgarian nationalists sent a letter to the ambassadors of EU and NATO member states informing them of the alleged violation of Stoyanovski's human rights.
