Brussels Scolds Bulgaria over Political Parties Financing

The tone in the report of the European Commission on the development of Bulgaria will be critical, the report is due to be presented today, reported the Bulgarian National Television. According to sources, the document will again read that Bulgaria suffers significant drawbacks in combating corruption and organized crime. Brussels continues insisting on more transparent assignment of tasks and priorities in the two major law enforcement institutions – the Ministry of Interior and the State Agency for National Security (SANS) as well as on parliamentary monitoring over the work of SANS. According to BNT, the Commission’s report insists on broader reforms in the processes of crime investigation i.e. the pre-trial phase that allegedly would lead to “easier access of the evidence material to the judicial process”. Reportedly, Brussels discovered the lack of adequate legislature on financing of political parties as well as adequate legal measures for confiscation of property obtained though illegal means. Brussels’s main advice is that verdicts should be passed on criminals who have long been known to the police. http://paper.standartnews.com/en/article.php?d=2009-02-12&article=26661
