With regard to a political declaration submitted to the National Assembly, the Public Communications Directorate provides the following position to the leadership of the Prosecutor’s Office of the Republic of Bulgaria:
"The leadership of the Prosecutor's Office of the Republic of Bulgaria assesses as extremely unacceptable and gross violation of the rule of law and the independence of the judiciary, the political declaration presented on 14.01.2022 in the National Assembly. Moreover using the tribune of the Parliament to read it.
This political act is an example of a direct violation of the separation of powers, guaranteed by the Constitution of the Republic of Bulgaria. The political declaration fully confirms the repeatedly expressed by the leadership of the Prosecutor’s Office of the Republic of Bulgaria concerns about the growing risk of serious and irreparable damage to the independence of the Prosecution as part of the judiciary and permanent deviation from the EU guiding principle of the rule of law. An official letter with the same concerns was sent to the European institutions, the embassies of the EU member states, Great Britain and the United States.
The leadership of the Prosecutor’s Office of the Republic of Bulgaria believes that the presented declaration is of a purely political nature. Its sole purpose is to try to divert public attention from the real social, economic and health problems faced by Bulgarian citizens.”
