Chief Prosecutor Sotir Tsatsarov has said that Oktay Enimehmedov, the man who assaulted Ahmed Dogan, leader of the ethnic Turkish party Movement for Rights and Freedoms (DPS) on Saturday, may face more serious charges over the attack.

The 25-year-old man, who pointed a gas pistol against the politician during the 8th national conference of DPS, has so far been charged with a death threat and hooliganism.

In a Monday interview for the Bulgarian National Radio (BNR), Tsatsarov suggested that the prosecuting authority was well aware of the type of the gun and "the so-called bullets" but specified that the fact that the man was carrying two knives and the impact of a very short range shot were yet to be examined.

Tsatsarov noted that expert psychological and psychiatric testimony would provide a full profile of the perpetrator.

Bulgaria's Chief Prosecutor emphasized that the investigating authorities were to reveal the motives of Enimehmedov, as well as the people who possibly talked him into attacking Dogan.

Tsatsarov announced that there was no information about any accomplices of Oktay at this stage of the investigation.
