Bulgarians are staging once again Thursday a rally in support of Gergana Chervenkova and for protecting human and civil rights of all fellow country people.

The protest is organized on social networks with calls for solidarity.

#‎SAVEGERY is held Thursday morning in 17 cities in the country.

The one in Sofia takes place in the vicinity of the main courthouse.

At 9:30 am Thursday, the Sofia Appellate Court will hold a sitting on Chervenkova's extradition case.

On Tuesday, the US revoked its request for the extradition of Gergana Chervenkova, a Bulgarian mother of two, who was charged in a US court with illegal online drug sales and participating in a crime group specialized in money laundering.

"The United States has withdrawn its request for the extradition of Ms. Gergana Ilieva Pavlova Chervenkova, who is charged in the U.S. District Court for the Southern District of New York with federal narcotics and fraud offenses," the US Embassy in Bulgaria said in a statement.

The revocation came on grounds of new information received by the US prosecution.

"The question is: would US authorities extradite their citizen
under very similar circumstances? The unbiased answer is obvious"

The unbiased answer is indeed obvious, you dimwit: that depends. The US has extradition treaties (you know what a treaty is? LOL) with most countries that regulate this question. In 2006-2010 for example the US handed over 33 US citizens to the UK alone based on the bilateral treaty between both countries.

"Therefore: shut up!"

ROFL

Mefisto, "I know that is difficult to understand for You", but DO
TRY... The question is: would US authorities extradite their citizen
under very similar circumstances? The unbiased answer is obvious
and therefore: shut up, please.

Yane, what do you know about the Zimmerman case that the courts and the jury of his peers didn't know?
Why do you get on the liberal bandwagon to protest against something you know $hit about?
Why don't you, and your friends scream about the crime wave in Chicago town which last year topped 500 murders?
Did you know what Dr. Martin Luther King said a long time ago, about crime in Philadelphia?
Have you heard about: Four Georgia men arrested for 'beating to death' former Marine who survived TWO tours of duty in Iraq.
How about OJ Simpson, just to mention a few cases where UNLIKE IN THIS CASE, Justice was not served...

"Terrorist-friendly? US denies Russian requests to extradite criminals amid Snowden row..." And Vlad cheerfully hands over the terrorists that he sends to civilised countries to murder those who dare to criticise him, does he?

When Mother Russia finally gets rid of her last - and worse tsar - then maybe she will get a more sympathetic hearing in countries where democracy ISN'T a dirty word and the rag-tag Red "Army" isn't a tool of state oppression and one individual's megalomania....

sa-sha,

The 'competent' court is the court that is legally competent - I know that is difficult to understand for a dimwit like you. And this is the court of the country in which the alleged crime took place. So it is clearly NOT Bulgaria.

It seems that you are even not aware that C. committed the alleged crimes in the US.

"Let the competent court decide if she is a criminal or not."--------
exactly. The only remark: the competent Bulgarian court. And-following Democracy №1' example-NO extradition, sure.

You should find a more worthy cause to fight for "human and civil rights" in my humble opinion.

Let the competent court decide if she is a criminal or not. Running away from justice is not a "human" or "civil right".

as a long-standing member of an international criminal organisation, I'm amazed she's not been fast-tracked into the current parliament.
