There have been no preventive measures against organized crime on part of the Bulgarian state for the last 20 years, according to Prime Minister Boyko Borisov.

“When we sat down and made correct analyses you can see the results – there are busted criminals every day. For example, the car theft boss, “The Fat” – there are 16 suits against him which have just been dragging on. And the youngsters in the neighborhoods look up to such people who are unpunished. When “Ocean’s Eleven” came out, everybody was learning how to rob banks,” Bulgaria’s PM stated on the national radio.

When asked if the Interior Ministry used some new kind of American technology in solving the case with the high-profile kidnappers’ gang, as media reports have it, Borisov said that the only new and precise technology existed in Bankya, i.e. his home suburb outside of Sofia where each evening the Interior Ministry heads joined at one point by the Chief Prosecutor Boris Velchev were discussing the situation with him.

“We have DNA samples of “The Impudent” kidnappers. We have found hair from one of person who tore his own hair out of pain while he was in captivity. These criminals are impudent, arrogant bastards who cut off people’s fingers. It is terrible to take the victims to the spot and to hear them say, “This is where they cut off my finger,” Borisov said.

He explained that organized crime was like a living organism, consisting of people who observe the country’s politics. He said that the team of the former Interior Minister, Mihail Mikov, did no work on solving the abductions.

You should follow your own advice. Clearly you have some sort of sexual obsession with insects, but the rest of the world does not share it. Please keep it to yourself.

"Now all that needs to be done is kidnap the arrogant bastards and put them on a 'fly by wire' slow plane out of Varna on a heading of 090 - with 30 minutes of fuel."

You seem to take a sadistic pleasure in this kind of vision, since you post it every time you say something on this forum. Please keep your private obsessions that make you a hard-on for yourself.

There is is a world of difference between being in the system and in control of it. Nobody seems to ackowledge that things have changed dramatically since Boiko was put IN CONTROL. Let's face it - he is doing a great job. Now all that needs to be done is kidnap the arrogant bastards and put them on a 'fly by wire' slow plane out of Varna on a heading of 090 - with 30 minutes of fuel.

Rat,

"It seems that failure is rewarded in Bulgaria. This must change and the people of Bulgaria must hold their elected (and appointed) leaders accountable."

I agree 100% with your analysis.

While it may be true that the media stands behind certain politicians, I hope it is not true that the BG public follows the media like lemmings.

I would hope and think that the BG people could see that their politicians are part of the problem and not part of the solution.

It is my hope that the BG public stands up and throws out the corrupt and incompetent.

The BG public needs to understand that they hold more power than the politicians and the media!

"And after being a mediocre Mayor of Sofia, why would the people of Bulgaria promote him to PM? "

Because all the media told them to! Really, all BG media were for Borissov. So your question should be why did the BG media support Boyko, and why do they continue to do so?

"It seems that failure is rewarded in Bulgaria. This must change and the people of Bulgaria must hold their elected (and appointed) leaders accountable."

BG leaders are only accountable to the "clans" that put them in place, everyone knows this. The clans then tell the media what to say, and the people mostly believe what the media says.

So the media have to change, to be truly independent of the "tribal" interests. Then maybe some real change will come to BG. Don't hold your breath...

DrFaust:

You state: "just a Chief Secretary (and a not successful one)".

This is right to my point (last year) about why Borisov keeps getting promoted. If, as you say, he was a "not successful" Chief Secretary then why would the people of Sofia promote him to Mayor?

And after being a mediocre Mayor of Sofia, why would the people of Bulgaria promote him to PM?

It seems that failure is rewarded in Bulgaria. This must change and the people of Bulgaria must hold their elected (and appointed) leaders accountable.

My bad.....you are correct. He was not a minister. But he still had a VERY high role in the ministry and was charged with fighting crime. My point is still valid.

Rat,

"So, does Borisov admit that he is part of the "arrogant bastards"? Was he not Interior Minister during Simeon's government? What a FOOL. He must think Bulgarians have no memory!"

Hm, I think your memory is not the best. He was in fact not Interior Minister, just a Chief Secretary (and a not successful one). That makes him of course part of the system, but not in that influential role you mentioned.

"He explained that organized crime was like a living organism, consisting of people who observe the country’s politics. "

Yes, and Boyko is part of this organism! Its current head, in fact. He is just meting out punishments to those who have stepped outside of the organism's control, who break its clan rules. Kidnapping 'business men' not okay, trafficking poor people or drugs okay...
