Prosecutor General can now be investigated

Without debates and by a full majority of 210 votes in favor, no votes against and no abstentions, the Bulgarian parliament adopted changes to the Criminal Procedure Code introducing a mechanism allowing investigating the chief prosecutor and his deputies. This was what BNR reporter Maria Fileva reported. The procedure stipulates that reports against the chief prosecutor or his deputy are sent to the chairman of the Criminal Board of the Supreme Court of Cassation. From a list of criminal judges with supreme rank, the judge who would become prosecutor in an investigation will be randomly determined. Another prosecutor will oversee the investigation.

The BSP left the plenary hall at the beginning of the debate.
