"Politicians and oligarchs to pay provocateurs to use civic energy is not new. The new thing is that the one who was supposed to be the unifier of the nation – Radev (referring to Bulgaria’s President), supported the fugitives from justice. We continue to work in the name of the future of the country!", Bulgaria’s Chief Prosecutor Ivan Geshev wrote on his Twitter account.
Earlier today, the chief prosecutor thanked the US Embassy, which in a statement supported the Bulgarian people "in their efforts to increase confidence in the democratic system and promote the rule of law in Bulgaria."
"I thank our partners from the United States and their embassy in Bulgaria for their support for the rule of law and the uncompromising actions of the Prosecutor's Office. Indeed - no one is above the law for us! Today we will show it to all Bulgarians once again!", Geshev wrote.
At noon, the Specialised Prosecutor's Office announced that the accused businessmen Vasil Bozhkov and Tsvetan Vassilev were partnering with "honest" politicians and "free" journalists to sabotage the work of Bulgaria's justice system.
