New Bulgarian Special Criminal Court?

There are news that the government is planning to introduce new, specialized courts for money laundering, kidnapping, human trafficking, organized criminal groups, EU funds fraud.

So far, so good. But the government introduced its plans to a very small group of experts, without inviting some leading NGOs. The leader of the far-right “Ataka” party harassed the representative of the “Open Society” institute and said that its founder, George Soros, is a criminal.

This does not bode well for the draft legislation. I will study the issue carefully.
