Jordan (Orce) Kamcev is one of the suspects in the “Empire” case, as well as in the “Parcel ana Vodno” case, while in public he is known for his close ties to the former head of the secret police, Saso Mijalkov.

During the pre-investigation procedure, sufficient evidence was gathered showing that from 2002 to 2013, suspects committed criminal offenses through judicial persons.

This company later transfers the ownership to another Panama offshore company.

At the time, especially in 2009, director of Finzi was Vladislav Stajkovic, brother of Nebojsa Stajkovic, former deputy minister of technology and information at the Interior Ministry of North Macedonia.

The money continued to be transferred as an initial deposit to Cardiology Sistina, a company that later changed its name to Si-Fi-Kar (Sistina, Finzi, Kara). In 2012, according to the prosecution office, when the money laundering operation was completed, a US-based parent company closed and opened a new company, where Kerpac became director and the money was donated by Israel. regarding the monitoring material is transferred to the same Account.
