Otherwise, Bulgaria will bring an action to the court, this country’s caretaker Minister of Transport Hristo Alexiev said at a briefing at Odessos Shiprepair Yard. The owner of Vera Su deliberately let the ship sink, Minister Alexiev noted.

The cargo vessel is now property of Bulgaria. It will undergo the necessary repair works.
