The Sofia City Court has decided to lift the restriction for traveling abroad on former Interior Minister Tsvetan Tsvetanov.

Tsvetanov, a minister from the former ruling center-right GERB party, was charged in November with large-scale embezzlement, as well as failing to issue necessary authorization for the use of special surveillance devices.

Tsvetanov gave up his MP immunity in order to be prosecuted for the two cases.

Judge Velichka Marinkova granted the request of Tsvetanov to lift the ban, as magistrates believe there is no danger of him escaping the law.

Yes good move, he won't be running away like a coward, he gave up his MP immunity on his own merit and will face up to the alleged charges he faces.

What about Biserov, where is he and why wasn't a travel ban been issued to him? He didn't waste a second to run from the "law" did he!
