Bulgaria: Bulgaria's Capital to See Rallies for and against Feisty Nationalist Leader Volen Siderov's fans and foes are waging a war of words in Facebook.

Bulgarians for and against stripping the country's nationalist leader of immunity from prosecution will rally in front of the main court house in Sofia on Wednesday.

A day earlier the Sofia City Prosecution took over the case in which nationalist party Ataka leader Volen Siderov allegedly harassed a lady and assaulted a man.

"The conclusion of investigators is that there has been committed a crime of a general character. Enough evidence has been gathered," informed the prosecution.

If the Sofia City Prosecution confirms the investigators' findings, that means it will have to ask the Chief Prosecutor to strip Siderov of his immunity as an MP.

Monday Siderov harassed a woman, who is a cultural attach?e at the French Embassy in Sofia while on a flight from Sofia to Varna.

Later on he stirred another scandal by apparently assaulting a man at the Varna Airport and engaging in a fight with the police.

The nationalist leader has stated that the cases were staged provocations against his person.

The French Embassy in Sofia has issued a statement of protest against what happened on board the flight.

Removing his immunity for this would be political sabotage and a stitch up by anti government elements.

It is time to move on and focus on real issues that this government is doing such as increasing pensions and reducing the tax for lo lower paid people.

Siderov makes these things possible.

"Feisty"? The guy is certifiable and a total disgrace to the country! The only loonies who would REALLY support his antics are those even more barking than O-AP with his boring pretend-politics....

Mr Siderov was justifiably defending Bulgaria against the fascist abuse from an agent of the western imperialists and as a result he may be prosecuted! Bulgaria must make a stand against continued fascist interference and subversion in our country and the regime must warn France and any other nation that to ignore this warning will be crushed by an iron fist.
