"The decision of the Libyan court is an encouraging news. The case against the Bulgarian medics is indeed a complex one and this adjournment is an expression of the Libyan side's good will to establish the truth," Bulgaria’s President Purvanov said in a statement to the media. Parvanov says he does not question the objectivity of the Libyan prosecuting authorities and that he believes a new investigation will acquit the Bulgarian medics of the most serious charges.The Bulgarian head of state voices hope that the decision to relax the medics' detention regulations, which he described as a "really humane gesture on the part of the Libyan authorities",will remain in force. "I want to express my special gratitude to Mr. Seif al-Islam for his role as objective observer of the trial. I would be glad to welcome Mr. Seif al-Islam as my guest in Bulgaria," reads the statement.
