Petar Kardzhilov, Ph.D., a Member of the Union of Scientists in Bulgaria and the Green Movement, former PR of the capital’s Mladost district, sent an Open Letter yesterday – a Signal to all Members of the European Parliament.
In his letter, Dr. Kardzhilov says:
„I am sending this open letter – a signal to you in connection with the findings in the last Rule of Law Report for 2020 on the situation of the rule of law in Bulgaria – on the statements for lack of control and omnipotence of the Chief Prosecutor, as well as the impossibility to investigate him, about the statement for partial progress in the fight against high-level corruption, as well as findings on the dependence of the judiciary in Bulgaria.
As there is no institution, body, or prosecutor in Bulgaria to accuse, investigate and bring to justice the Chief Prosecutor Ivan Geshev, I personally alert you on my behalf to the existence of a sufficiently stable and seriously substantiated presumption of official crimes and crimes against justice committed by the Chief Prosecutor in his capacity as the administrative head of the Specialized Prosecutor’s Office in early 2018.
There is a reasonable suspicion that Mr. Ivan Geshev committed a crime of defamation, fabricated bribery, official crimes, and crimes against justice in the investigation, in the brutal spectacular twelve-hour arrest, as well as in the pre-trial proceedings on the charge of requesting and taking bribery, brought by the Specialized Prosecutor’s Office under the direction of Mr. Geshev against the former mayor of the Mladost district of Sofia, Mrs. Desislava Ivancheva, and her deputy, Mrs. Bilyana Petrova. At the same time, this encroachment and crime is an example of a false fight against high-level corruption.“
