Ivan Geshev should be chosen for Prosecutor General – the Prosecutor’s office should continue functioning as it has done it in the last few years, continued Tsatsarov.
"Approving this candidature will be the right thing to do. I have worked together with Ivan Geshev and I still do – I have already passed my judgement about him”, added Tsatsrov.
On the question what if the president doesn’t sign the decree so that Ivan Geshev becomes the next Prosecutor General, Tsatsarov answered that this is all written in the Constitution. "If the president refuses to sign the decree, but 17 or more people in the Supreme Judicial Council vote for Ivan Geshev, then the president must sign the decree. I will categorically stand for his candidature – whether the president gives it back to the Council so we have to vote again – if I have signed once, I will do it again”, continued Sotir Tsatsarov.
The journalists asked the current Prosecutor General also whether the candidature of Ivan Geshev has something to do with the cyber-attack on the National Revenue Agency. “I don’t think so. One of those things is thought out in advance, while the other has been done over and over again several times”, explained Tsatsarov.
