Bulgarian Ex-EU Commissioner Shocked by Assault against Dogan
Former Bulgarian European Commissioner Meglena Kuneva has condemned the assault against Ahmed Dogan, leader of Bulgaria's centrist Movement for Rights and Freedoms (DPS) party.
Police in Bulgaria detained a man after he pointed a gun at Dogan as he was delivering a speech in the capital Sofia. No shots were fired. The man was identified as Oktay Enimemehmedov, a 25-year-old resident of the city of Burgas, with a previous criminal record for assault and theft.
"What happened at the eighth national conference of DPS was shocking," Kuneva told reporters on Saturday.
"There is no normality in this country. There is no normality in politics," Kuneva said, as cited by BGNES.
