Hammer, you seem to know more about this man;

"Georgiev also served as Head of the “Contraband and White Collar Crime” department."

What successes did he book there?

An intelligent,noncorrupt and ambitious policeman gets a deserved position. We can only hope he will live up to FBI ethics and serve and protect the public, and not become a handy tool for the politicians. He has made a remarkable career since he left Plovdiv as head of the organized crime unit, but his success might come at a political price and his ambitions made him "blind".

But what is exactly an Interior Chief Secretary ? A political position ? If so, he should not accept but keep on doing excellent policework instead of being intimidated by his superiors. Is he simply to good and has become a threat to the corrupted Bulgarian establishment ?
