Thirteen Years without President Boris Trajkovski


Today, Macedonia marks 13 years from the death of the former Macedonian President Boris Trajkovski, who died in a plane crash at Rotimlje, near Mostar.

In Skopje, in the Alley of the Greats at the Butel Cemetery, flowers will be laid at Trajkovski’s grave by members of his family, several delegations, and citizens.

The anniversary of President Trajkovski’s death will also be marked in front of the plateau of “Boris Trajkovski” Sport Centre in Skopje.

The president of Republic of Macedonia, Boris Trajkovski, died in a plain crash on 26 February 2004, together with 8 members of the Macedonian delegation, travelling to an International conference to Mostar.

Since then, two investigations have been conducted, and two reports have been made on the accident that happened in the area of Matik Brdo, at Huskoviki village, near Mostar, to determine whether it was a plain crash or “terrorism”. There have been two commissions, managed by Salko Begik, and Omer Kulik, and both involved Macedonian experts as well.

Both reports, which differ from one another, cite pilot mistakes and indirect system mistakes as cause of the King Air’s fall.
