Sofia Regional Court: Boyko Borissov’s detention is illegal

The Sofia Regional Court ruled that the detention of the former Bulgarian Premier Boyko Borissov was illegal. The court ruling may be appealed against.

After the court ruling, the opposition GERB-SDS demanded the resignation of Prime Minister Kiril Petkov in a declaration read out in parliament.

On March 17 this year, the leader of GERB party and former Prime Minister of Bulgaria Boyko Borissov was taken into custody for 24 hours. However, no charges were pressed against him. Borissov was arrested during a large-scale law enforcement operation in Bulgaria. /BGNES
