Macedonian opposition rejects decision to halt wire-tap probe as 'a coup'

SKOPJE (Reuters) - Macedonian opposition leader Zoran Zaev called on President Gjorge Ivanov on Tuesday to resign, saying his decision to halt all criminal investigations into a government wire-tap scandal amounted to a coup.

“We want Gjorge Ivanov to resign. If he doesn’t do that, he will lead the state to the brink. This today is a coup d’etat. We will use all tools that we have to stop it,” Zaev told reporters, adding that he would call for a protest against the decision.
