The Monitoring Group on Democracy, Rule of Law and Fundamental Rights (DRFMG) in the European Parliament is not satisfied with the answers it received to written questions sent by it to the Bulgarian authorities about the course of the judicial reform, the activity of the Prosecutor General and others. Therefore, the EP has invited them to a meeting on December 17. This was announced by the BNR correspondent in Brussels, Angelina Piskova, referring to the MEP from the Progressive Alliance of Socialists and Democrats Elena Yoncheva.

In August this year, the Monitoring Group was scheduled to hear Prime Minister Boyko Borissov on these issues. Instead, he sent Deputy Prime Minister Ekaterina Zaharieva and other officials from the Bulgarian institutions. After not receiving satisfactory answers, the Monitoring Group sent additional written questions to the Bulgarian authorities.
