Bulgaria's Chief Prosecutor Sotir Tsatsarov has rejected nationalist party Ataka leader Volen Siderov's allegations that a looming trial for hooligan actions against him is politically motivated.

"If anyone thinks that he can hit a uniformed policeman in this country, so that he can later exercise in rhetorics, then he has got seriously wrong," said Tsatsarov Thursday.

Monday Siderov got himself involved in two brawls, one on a flight from Sofia to Varna, the other at Varna airport.

"As far as I can see from evidence, there has been hooligan behavior and for such there is criminal responsibility. There is no political pressure to speak about," commented Tsatsarov.

The Chief Prosecutor has already requested Siderov's MP immunity lifted, but Thursday he added that the prosecution will consider whether to file similar requests for other Ataka MPs who were present at the incidents.
