Bulgaria's Notorious MP Snubs Constitutional Court - Report
Bulgaria’s notorious media mogul Delyan Peevski has declined to turn up at the Constitutional Court for the hearing over his possible reinstatement as an MP, according to media reports.
The appointment of Peevski, a lawmaker and shady tycoon, for head of the powerful State Security Agency on June 14 triggered mass protests in Bulgaria, ongoing for more than three months now.
Peevski’s appointment was canceled by Parliament on June 19, but the move failed to appease protesters, who have demanded the government’s resignation for over 100 consecutive days now.
The cancelled appointment brought up the question of whether Peevski could return to his previous post of MP from liberal party Movement for Rights and Freedoms (DPS).
Bulgaria’s Constitutional Court has to rule on whether the rights of Peevski as a MP will be cut or not on October 8.
Peevski however deems his appearance at the court pointless because he believes the reporter on the case is partial, private TV channel bTV reported, citing insiders.
He has laid out hid arguments in a letter to the Constitutional Court, kindly turning down its invitation to make his case there, the report said.
