Bulgarian Court to Hear Case Against Health Fund Chair Dismissal
Bulgarian Constitutional Court will hear Tuesday the case against the early release of Plamen Tsekov from the post of Head of Bulgarian Health Insurance Fund, Offnews reported.
MPs of former ruling Citizens for European Development party /GERB/ challenged the constitutionality of Tsekov’s dismissal, bringing the case to the Court.
The motion for the politician’s release was made by Maya Manolova, a Socialist MP.
Tsekov was replaced as a Head of Health Insurance Fund by Rumyiana Todorova, the sister of the Socialist eurodeputy Ilyiana Yotova.
Tsekov’s mandate of Health Insurance Fund Director would have expired in 2015.
Tsekov, an ex GERB MP and an ex- deputy-chair of Healthcare Committee in the former ruling cabinet was voted down on July 4 due to an alleged poor management of funds.

Novinite: only prisoners are "released", not people who involuntarily leave their jobs, work or elected positions; that is referred to as "dismissed". The connotation of being "released" is inaccurate and depicts a person or animal being released from their cage, jail, bondage, restraint, confinement etc, not their job. This BG mentality of being "released" is a constant and it is a mindset of decades of a totalitarian regime where ALL decisions where made for you. Get with the programme Novinite.
