Bulgarian Prime Minister Boyko Borisov has once again condemned the attack on key ethnic Turkish politician Ahmed Dogan.

Ahmed Dogan, founder and leader of the ethnic Turkish DPS party ("Movement for Rights and Freedoms"), was the target of a gas pistol attack right on the floor of a party conference on Saturday by 25-year-old Oktay Enimehmedov, also a Bulgarian citizen from ethnic Turkish origin. No shots were fired. Enimehmedov was lynched by DPS delegates after the attack.

"We firmly condemn the attack against Dogan and the treatment of the busted man," Borisov told bTV on Friday.

Upon asked to comment on the ethnic Turkish party's doubts regarding the expert reports in the investigation of the attack, the Prime Minister advised the party to keep quiet and allow the prosecutors to do their work.

Enimehmedov says he did not actually want to kill Dogan, but to scare him. The gun was established to have been a gas pistol, which cannot kill a person.
