Commenting article: Bulgaria President: We Guard European Borders Better than Some EU Countries

Bulgaria is better at guarding European borders than a number of EU Member States, according to President Rosen Plevneliev.

In an interview for Le Nouvel Observateur, Plevneliev comments on the economic, cultural, and European ties between Bulgaria and France, stressing that problems with Bulgarian Roma must not be exaggerated.

"The governments of France and Bulgaria work together and this problem should not get blown out of proportion. There are around 2000 Bulgarian Roma in France, of whom 80% reside there absolutely legally," Plevneliev says.

It is really boring to hear these people continue to complain about the refusal to enter Schengen.

1. The Dutch embassador was clear. What's the use of having top night vision cameras if the BG officers are ready to close their eyes for a 100€ bribe. He is right; Check the Ministery of Fun in Svilengrad. These border guys continue to florish.

2. The Schengen countries don't want the BG criminals to enter their countries. Hundreds of them receive impunity in a failing justice system. Let them show their passports upon arrival, so that they can be arrested and stand justice.

3. Schengen does not want the BG police to have insight in their police records on Bulgarian criminals through the Schengen Information System, as long as the BG police has close links with criminals.

Sorry for the good hearted Bulgarians. I hope it is not a burden to you to show your passport upon entry.
