Briton Morley still in temporary detention

The British citizen Nicholas Morley will remain in temporary detention, decided the Criminal Chamber of the Struga Court.

Morley's lawyer, Dragan Goxho, also confirmed this information to Makfax Agency.

According to Goxho, Morley offered 25.000 euros to be released on bail.

The lawyer pointed out that no formal charges have been filed against Morley so far, adding that the investigative procedure is still under way.

Macedonian Police arrested Nicholas Morley, a participant in the Gumball 3000 rally, after his Porsche collided head-on with a vehicle of a Macedonian citizen at the Struga-Qafasan road on Wednesday. Vladimir Chepunjoski died immediately after the accident, while his wife, Margarita, on Friday succumbed to the injures she sustained in the crash.

On Thursday, an investigative judge of Struga Court ordered 30 days of temporary detention to Nicholas Morley.
