Bulgaria should quickly deal with resurgence of criminal activity - EC.

By bne IntelliNews January 31, 2013
The recent attacks against MRF leader Ahmed Dogan and mobster Zlatomir Ivanov - the Beret are "clearly internal matters" that the Bulgarian authorities should address and resolve swiftly, Commission spokesperson Mark Gray said at a press conference, where he presented the special report on Romania. We remind that on January 19, the long-time leader of ethnic MRF, Ahmed Dogan, was threatened with pistol by 25-year old Oktay Enimehmedov and on January 28, the accused for drugs trafficking Zlatomir Ivanov was shot four times on his way to court. The government needs to implement a fundamental reform in the area of judiciary, the EC reiterated. This was also one of the areas that have been considered as major setbacks in the last report on the progress of Bulgaria under the Cooperation and Verification Mechanism (CVM). The next progress report on the country will be published at the end of the year.
