KEYWORDS TODAY: Crimea
Controversial Bulgarian magistrate Veneta Markovska has filed her resignation as judge and Deputy Chair of the Supreme Administrative Court (VAS), clearing the path to her appointment as constitutional judge.
Although she wanted her oath of office as constitutional judge to be postponed, she fulfilled the necessary requirement for stepping in office, according to reports of the Bulgarian Telegraph Agency (BTA).
The resignation is to be voted by the Supreme Judicial Council (VSS) on Thursday....
Markovska is only following in the steps of other judges, politicians and public figures who do whatever they want, openly flouting the law and ignoring public opinion in the full knowledge that they are untouchable and that there will never be any repercussions.
