Relatives of victims of the forced change of names of Bulgarian Muslims during the communist regime protested in front of the Sofia Court House against lack of justice. They are dissatisfied with the fact that after 31 years of delays the case over the forced change of names, filed by the prosecutor's office back in 1991, was terminated in 2022.

Five senior figures of the communist regime led by Todor Zhivkov were accused of crimes during the so-called "Revival Process".

Fifteen civil society organizations have called on the chief prosecutor to reopen the case and hold the perpetrators who are still alive accountable, not just their leaders.
