Bulgaria: Is Siderov Liable, Immune, or Untouchable?

Bulgaria's nationalist leader Volen Siderov in the headlines over causing public disturbance? You don't say...

In his latest gaffe, the Ataka leader allegedly went as far as assaulting a policeman and a French diplomat – a woman for that matter, at the Varna Airport.

Once again, the ball is in the Prosecution's court. The Chief Prosecutor has immediately ordered an investigation, which could result in the lifting of Siderov's MP immunity. So far, so good.

Siderov has been indispensable in keeping the majority in Parliament for both the previous and the current government. Therefore, neither has dared to act upon his outbursts of madness. However, with each inaction, his immunity grew stronger – to the point where he feels untouchable.

With a fairly poor track record of following through on the nationalist's blunders, the Prosecution must finally prove that it can do its job properly. It has no other choice, when a foreign diplomat is among the victims.

On Monday, Romania's Supreme Court sentenced an ex-PM to 4 years in jail over bribery. We are not so sophisticated in Bulgaria, yet. All we ask is to see a madman be removed from a position where he can continuously humiliate the nation.

I suggest that you shove all the toy helicopters right up your rear end, and preferably when they are switched on.

when and IF the Chief Prosecutor has the guts to take away his immunity and have him face a court for his actions. Siderov has gotten quite comfortable in believing that he is an untouchable, and that he may act any which way he desires and without any responsibility or consequences - See more at:http://www.rctopshop.com/esky-rc-helicopters

Siderov will go ballistic and will cause pandemonium and all hell will break loose, when and IF the Chief Prosecutor has the guts to take away his immunity and have him face a court for his actions. Siderov has gotten quite comfortable in believing that he is an untouchable, and that he may act any which way he desires and without any responsibility or consequences. He has gotten away with too much to be excused now. Also, don't forget that he carries a gun with him like the cowboy that he is, so everyone should be very very careful and remember that. If cornered he is quite likely to use it.

No need to be "sophisticated": the poor guy is clearly ill and needs to be locked up in a secure mental institution....no, NOT the Народно събрание - it breeds them, not cures them ;)
