The Prosecution Office has officially suggested the repeal of the death sentence of great Bulgarian poet Nikola Vaptsarov, sentenced and killed by firing squad by then ruling fascist regime on July 23, 1942 in Sofia.

Nikola Vaptsarov is one of the most prominent poets of Bulgaria, a representative of the so-called proletarian period. His most famous book of poems is "Motoring Verses".

Bulgarian journalists and social activists have reiterated many times their appeal to national prosecution authorities to take due steps to denounce his death sentence and thus remove this shameful act from Bulgarian history.
