CSD: Crime Is Rising in Bulgaria

A new survey by the Centre for Study of the Democracy shows that out of 610 000 crimes committed last year only 330 000 (54%) were reported to the police. However, registered crimes in police databases are only 140 000. That means that a large amount of crime reports are filtered out.

In the first few months of 2009 crime rates have tripled, now affecting 3% of the population.
