The Prosecutor’s College with the Supreme Judicial Council (SJC) has suspended the procedure for selection of European Delegated Prosecutors from Bulgaria for the European Public Prosecutor’s Office (EPPO), the press office of the Supreme Judicial Council announced.

 The selection was suspended, because Anita Dzhamalova’s nomination was rejected. The European Chief Prosecutor Laura Kövesi sent a letter to Bulgaria’s Deputy Minister of Justice Maria Pavlova, requesting a new nomination from Bulgaria. According to the letter, the other nominee Ivaylo Iliev has been appointed as European Delegated Prosecutor. After discussing the letter, the members of the Prosecutor’s College have decided to suspend the selection procedure, because the next candidates in line have not received the necessary support from the members of the Prosecutor’s College during the voting, which took place on September 10, 2021.
