Bulgarians Petition to Strip Nationalist Chief of Immunity
Citizens have filed a claim with Chief Prosecutor Sotir Tsatsarov and Sofia City Prosecutor's Office requesting to lift the immunity of the nationalist party Ataka leader Volen Siderov and to hold him criminally liable.
The claim is accompanied with a petition containing 3 121 signatures with full names and social security numbers of people who support the request, "Focus" agency reported.
The petitioners explained that the idea for such claim has been born Thursday night during one of the already traditional blockades at Eagles' Bridge. The signatures have been collected in the course of three nights without a designated place for it during the procession. Lawyers have prepared the claim to be submitted. Citizens explained that this is an entirely civil idea and does not serve any political bias.
They also said that they have requested a meeting with Tsatsarov, but his office replied the Chief Prosecutor was busy and could not accept them, so they brought the claim to the registry where they received an entry number. Employees from Tsatsarov's office assured the petitioners that the claim will be passed on to the Chief Prosecutor on the same day.
