The operation for the removal of the illegal structures is taking place under the supervision of gendarmerie and police officers, according to reports of the Bulgarian National Radio (BNR).
The illegal sites include pavilions, small shops, hairdressers' and garages operating without permits, which are also non-compliant with a range of standards and for which the owners are not paying taxes.
