"If I am guilty I will bear my punishment. If it is necessary, I will stay [behind bars]. There is nothing wrong in this. I will read a book or two. I love reading."

Lawmaker Iliya Iliev commenting on his decision to renounce his immunity in order to face criminal prosecution and embezzlement charges.

"You wouldn't expect that before [being a lawmaker] I earned a living for my family by being a shepherd, would you? I used to be in the business [field], I used to work [there], but I was no criminal. If I were, I wouldn't be here."
