Libyan authorities have yet again mocked the feelings and hopes of the five Bulgarian nurses, jailed on accusations of creating a HIV pandemic, and their relatives and canceled another promised visit to the jail.

After it was announced on Saturday that a visit would be granted Sunday, the relatives spent more than an hour waiting in front of the prison doors and they weren't allowed in, without even an explanation. "This is just another cold shower," Zdravko Georgiev, husband of Kristiyana Valcheva, commented for Darik News.

"We were just told that there wouldn't be a visit today and that's that," he added. "They lied to us again, nothing has been organized as it should be yet."

Before they left for Libya, the relatives were promised daily visits with their loved ones for the full week of their stay, but then the local authorities comfortably forgot their promised and said only three visits would take place. Then they settled for one more, but denied it the very next day.

Bulgaria's Deputy Justis Minister is also in Libya, but still hasn't been allowed to visit the five.
