At a sitting lasting more than 6 hours, the Supreme Judicial Council rejected as inadmissible the request submitted by caretaker Minister of Justice Yanaki Stoilov for the dismissal of Prosecutor General Ivan Geshev.

The discussions at the Supreme Judicial Council revolved around the question whether the minister of justice has the power to submit such a report and whether it is possible to initiate disciplinary proceedings against the prosecutor general. The request for the early termination of the powers of the prosecutor general is for wrongfully making public data obtained by special intelligence means, the prosecutor’s office operation inside the presidency building after which the anti-government protests broke out last year etc.
