Dogan Attacker Was Sober, Sane
The man who attempted to shoot Bulgarian ethnic Turkish leader Ahmed Dogan with a gas pistol on Saturday was not under the influence of alcohol or drugs during the attack.
There is no data suggesting that the attacker, 25-year-old ethnic Turk Oktay Enimehmedov, might suffer from a psychiatric disorder, experts from the Medical Military Academy in Sofia have also told reporters.
Enimehmedov, who was beaten by several members of the Movement for Rights and Freedoms party after the attack, did not sustain serious injuries.
The 25-year-old man burst onto the stage and pointed a gas pistol at Dogan during a televised speech at a party caucus. No shots were fired.
Lyutvi Mestan was elected as chair of Bulgaria's Movement for Rights and Freedoms party on Saturday, ending 23 years of Ahmed Dogan being at the helm of the party.
