There was a discouraging try to bring discredit on the procedure for choosing the next prosecutor of Bulgaria. It was done by people from the close circle of Tsvetan Vasilev, who is accused for the bankruptcy of the Cooperative Trade Bank, but at the same time is hiding from the law in Belgrad. What happened was already foreseen by “Praven sviat”. Representatives of the NGO “BOEC” legitimated personally by the head of the Supreme Court of Cassation – Lozan Panov – were against the nomination of Boyko Atanasov. He is currently an examining magistrate in the Sofia Prosecutor’s office. This would be the seventh time he applies for the position of the prosecutor – but probably this will not happen.
“Praven sviat” has already showed that Boyko Atanasov was suspended from the Prosecutor’s office multiple times during the last ten years. We have seen the logical explanation of how he could make couple of mistakes in each of his sentences in the report of his previous work, presented to the Court.
During each of his 6 previous candidatures for administrative director, Boyko Atanasov presented his diploma for becoming a lawyer from the Southwestern University “Neofit Rilski”. This is where we find his grade – Satisfactory (3) on Criminal law. His final exam on Criminal law he keeps the same law grade. It’s the same situation with his grades on disciplines such as Civil law, Roman law, Common knowledge for the country, as well as Structure of the judiciary. This is what makes his eagerness to give comments on the work of the judiciary look curious.
The arithmetic mean of all his grades in the university show that Boyko Atanasov graduated with Good (4.30). Such a grade would not let the candidature of the NGO “BOEC” to start a successful carrier in a solicitor’s office where students do their internship with Excellent (5.50) or above. Nevertheless, there are no such criteria in the administration or judiciary.
