A monitoring group from the European Parliament’s Committee on Civil Liberties, Justice and Home Affairs (LIBE) is to send a mission to Bulgaria, EP sources told the BNR’s Horizont channel.

The MEPs will come to Bulgaria in September or October. The dispatching of a mission has been approved by representatives of the three biggest parliamentary groups – of the European People’s Party, the Progressive Alliance of Socialists and Democrats and Renew Europe, and comes at the insistence of the socialists.  

On 4 June, the Committee on Civil Liberties, Justice and Home Affairs is to hold another meeting specifically to discuss the sanctions imposed by the US Department of the Treasury’s Office of Foreign Assets Controls on oligarchs and senior officials under the Global Magnitsky sanctions programme.
