POLITICIANS HOPEFUL ABOUT MEDICS CASE IN LIBYA
The Bulgarian medics, charged with intentionally infecting Libyan children with HIV, will no longer be sued by the People's Court of Libya and the case will be tabled in an ordinary Court. Justice Minister Anton Stankov said that this was a good development since one of the heavy charges have been removed. “As far as I am informed the regime for detention measures has not been changed. They will still stay in the guarded house, “ Stankov added. “I am more optimistic about the positive outcome of the case,” he said.
“I am surprised with the developments on the case of the medics, “ Bulgaria’s parliamentary speaker Ognyan Gerdzhikov commented. “I expected a sentence to have been pronounced on February 17, I did not expect a bad sentence, “ he admitted. Taking back to the Prosecutor’s Office is possible according to the Libyan laws – in Bulgaria that is impossible, “ Gerdzhikov explained. The decision of the the People's Court of Libya means that in the investigation certain lapses have been made, according to Gerdzhikov.
