DUI member and Defense Minister Fatmir Besimi had broken the law multiple times in order to hire the newphew of his advisor Ilmi Selami.
Ilmi Selami, who was a former president of the State Anti-Corruption Commission and current advisor to the Minister of Defense, unlawfully hired his newphew as a professional soldier in Macedonia's Armed Services after numerous scandals.
The newphew's name is Ridvan Selami who just yesterday signed a contract to work as a professional soldier in ARM, despite not meeting any of the requirements set forth.
Ridvan Selmani is born on February 10th, 1988, and in 4 days will be 24 years old.
ARM's statute clearly states an individual can not be older than 23. Becuase of his age, the Commission tasked for reviewing and accepting soldiers denied his appication.
The head of the Commission was Zlatko Kuzmanov.
After Ridvan Selami was denied acceptance, the Minister of Defense Fatmir Besimi ordered the Commission to disband, and appointed his own friend and "advisor" Ilmi Selami as the head of the new Commission (see document above).
According to Statute 36 of the ARM, an individual must have completed high school degree, to have gone volontarily through the Army Service and be no older than 23.
According to the Military Hospital in Skopje, records show that Ridvan Selami not just that he was over the age limit, but failed the psychological test three times in a row!
The psychological test reveals Ridvan Selami is psychologically unstable, described him as a ticking "time bomb" and should not be near a weapon.
If this is not bad enough, Ridvan Selami attacked the doctor who conducted the test, Dr. Ljubica Poposka. Military Police and local police quickly intervened and held him handcuffed for several hours until his uncle intervened for his release.
The newly created Commission with his uncle Ilmi Selami in charge, accepted Ridvan's application and since yesterday he is a new professional soldier.
When probed by journalists about his nephew, Ilmi Selami claimed he in no way had any influence on the selection process and isn't aware how old was his nephew!?
DM Fatmir Besimi broke the law multiple times, fired numerous people just to hire a pshychologically unstable individual?
