War over Alexander the Great to rumble on.

 By Gareth Harris.
Skopje museum plans sculpture of the Macedonian king and other famous ancient figures.

The director of an archaeological museum opening later this year in Skopje, the capital of the former Yugoslav Republic of Macedonia (FYROM), says it will have 15 wax sculptures of historical figures, including Alexander the Great (below), his father Philip II and the philosopher Aristotle, which will do little to improve relations with Greece or Bulgaria.
Greeks and Bulgarians have bitterly contested FYROM’s claim to figures such as Alexander. Greece has also been involved in a 22-year naming dispute with FYROM, the name adopted by the Balkan state in 1991 after the break up of Yugoslavia. The Greek government fears that FYROM may stake a territorial claim to a northern area of Greece, which is  called Macedonia.

FYROM NEWS: Former FYROM's PM jailed for embezzlement

Vlado Buckovski Former FYROM's PM
F.Y.R.O.M.- SKOPJE: An appeal court in FYROM upheld on Monday the conviction of former prime minister Vlado Buckovski for embezzlement and corruption, but reduced his sentence by six months.

The court in Skopje found Buckovski guilty of embezzling two million euros (2.6 million dollars) through a scam involving the purchase of spare parts for T-55 tanks for the FYROM's army at inflated prices, dating back to 2001-2002 when he served as defence minister.

Buckovski had already been sentenced to three-and-a-half years by a lower court in 2008, which was reduced to three years on Monday. The court did not offer an explanation for that decision.

Former army chief of staff Metodij Stamboliski was sentenced to three years in prison, and three other officials were given sentences ranging from two to three years, unchanged from their prior convictions.
