Commenting article: Bulgaria Sentenced in Strasbourg over Teen Gang Rape

The European Court of Human Rights in Strasbourg has ruled against the Bulgarian state for refusing to investigate the gang rape of a fourteen-year-old girl.

The applicant, M.N., is a Bulgarian national who was born in 1980 and lives in the Bulgarian town of Karlovo.

Relying, in particular, on Articles 3 (prohibition of torture and inhuman or degrading treatment) and 8 (right to respect for private and family life), M.N. complained about the ineffectiveness of the investigation carried out into the rape of which she had been the victim aged 14.

This is a disgraceful example of Police and Justice department ineptitude and incompetence. How can an investigation with such evidence and guilty statements have taken so long. Maybe a cover up to protect someone whose family have connections/power? what other conclusion can be drawn?
