The approval, at first reading in parliament, of the creation of the figure of a prosecutor to investigate the Prosecutor General of Bulgaria took the European Commission for Democracy through Law (Venice Commission) by surprise.

This is what the Venice Commission stated at today’s meeting of the Democracy, Rule of Law and Fundamental Rights monitoring group of the Committee on Civil Liberties, Justice and Home Affairs in the European Parliament which reviewed the situation in Bulgaria for the second time, BNR’s correspondent Anguelina Piskova reports. According to the Venice Commission such a figure is not part of world practice and the decision to create one is strange.

Such supervision is only permissible in individual cases as is the practice in USA, the commission says.
