Just plain village common criminals. Everyone knows that the "VIP" of Bulgaria are the ones that are commiting all types of crimes but when they get caught they produce their VIP ID's and call a few friends and all is forgotten. This is why the Police and other authorties don't want to deal -with them because they are afraid to see what will happen to them for doing their jobs.

Someone should make an example of this behavior but I doubt anything will happen. All will be either forgotten or a confusing leagal wrangle will start and nothing will finish.

It is clear that these people have difficulties to obey the law. They think that they have done so many good things for society, that now and then they are above the law. To be an example for the citizens is unknown to them. Unfortunately, BG has too many people like this in the authorities.

Many Bulgarians will do same if they can. The Bulgarians argue and say this is bad because they dont have Power but when they have Power they do same. They envy on the people who have power to do what they want.
