Observance of 14. anniversary from President Boris Trajkovski's death


Macedonia observes Monday 14 years from the death of President Boris Trajkovski, who was killed in a plane crash near Mostar, Bosnia-Herzegovina.

Family members, delegations and citizens will lay flowers at Trajkovski's grave in Skopje.

President Trajkovski died in a plane crash on 26 February 2004, when the US-made Beechcraft King Air 200 tried to land at the airport of Mostar, in southern Bosnia, in bad weather.

President Trajkovski, six of his closest advisors Dimka Ilkova-Boskovic, Risto Blazevski and Anita Krisan-Lozanovska from his Cabinet, Mile Krstevski from the Ministry of Foreign Affairs, bodyguards Boris Velinov and Ace Bozinovski, as well as two pilots Marko Markovski and Branko Ivanovski died instantly.

Two investigations were conducted and two reports were published regarding the crash and declared that fatal plane crash was not the result of an assassination but an accident.

The reports into the crash, conducted by Salko Begic and Omer Kulic and Macedonian experts blamed the crash on pilot errors, technical problems and procedural mistakes.
