Commenting article: Bulgarian President Appoints Controversial Judge as Chief Prosecutor

Bulgarian President Rosen Plevneliev has signed a decree officially appointing controversially elected chief prosecutor Sotir Tsatsarov.

The President has thus defied calls made by oppositional parties to block Tsatsarov's appointment.

The opposition had argued that his election by the Supreme Judicial Council on Thursday was non-transparent and orchestrated by the ruling centrist-right GERB of Prime Minister Boyko Borisov and Interior Minister Tsvetan Tsvetanov.

"exceedingly high number of convicting sentences in trials heard by Tsatsarov "

Only in Bulgaria could. this be seen as negative by the press and opposition!

Not saying this guy is tainted, just don't know, but can the justice system not find anyone who is untarnished?? Poor reflection on Bulgaria's judiciary and a clear indicator of what its goals should be.
