Bulgaria FinMin Wants to Create Tax Police
Bulgaria's Ministry of Finance has developed legislation amendments allowing officers of Bulgaria's National Revenue Agency to obtain police powers.
The changes will have to be adopted by Parliament via changes in the country's Tax Procedure Codex and Penal Procedure Codex.
"Urgent tax investigation is at times needed by revenue agents in order to fulfil their regular tasks," read the Ministry of Finance's motives for the proposals.
Tax agents are proposed to now hold the powers to carry out interrogations, to inspect premises, to conduct searches, to seize property and the like.
According to the proposed amendments, those measures are to be taken up only when persons impede the proper carrying out of revenue officers' duties.

A civilized society has got three legs.
Firstly, the Parliament, who is responsible of legislation.
Secondly, the courts, who make convictions and approve search warrants etc. according to the laws.
Finally, we've got the administrative units, who do whatever they are supposed to do, but again according to the laws.
Now, this little prick wants the NRA to be able to circumvent the courts.
This is Bulgaria, the last free resort within the EU. Let's keep it like that.
And to you Uncle B: This is not funny. Invite this freak to your office and make him cry.
