Bulgarian President Criticizes Security Service in Dogan Attack Aftermath
Bulgarian President Rosen Plevneliev has criticized the country's National Security Service for its reaction to Saturday's attack against key politician Ahmed Dogan.
Police in Bulgaria detained a man after he pointed a gas pistol at former Movement for Rights and Freedoms leader Ahmed Dogan as he was delivering a speech in the capital Sofia on Saturday. No shots were fired. The man was identified as Oktay Enimemehmedov, a 25-year-old ethnic Turkish resident of the city of Burgas.
Plevneliev told reporters on Monday that he has ordered National Security Service head Todor Kodzheykov to prepare a report on the incident.
The President stated that "mistakes were made" by the National Security Service, adding that a number of measures will be taken to improve its work.

“Mistakes were made”
Plevneliev it’s all one big mistake!
Look for example how amateurish , sloppy and unprofessionally they handled the arrest of the “assassin”. (probably a guy with some mental disorder playing with a gas pistol…)
How can all “politicians” there kick and punch that person in such an animalistic, shameful and unprofessional manner. Even the old fat ones took their turn….. If that happened on tape in America that assassin would have sued all of them!
Basically you showed on tape to the entire world how exactly NOT to protect and NOT to arrest criminals.
What a pity, what a shame again Bulgaria.
