Refusal to Investigate Ex-Interior Minister Reversed
February 15 (BTA) - Specialized Prosecution Office (SPO) President Valentina Madjarova on Tuesday confirmed reports that the Supreme Cassation Prosecution Office (SCPO) has reversed the SPO's refusal to institute pretrial proceedings against former interior minister and current GERB MP Hristo Terziiski.
The case against Terziiski concerns his stint as national police director, when senior police officers were allegedly involved with a criminal group. He headed the Interior Ministry after that.
The SCPO found that the refusal to institute pretrial proceedings was unfounded. The supervising prosecutor is expected to order an additional check into the case file and then to pronounce himself in substance, Madjarova added. She declined to comment on the criticism in the SCPO statement. LN/VE
