Boyko Borissov said that Lozan Panov - the president of the Supreme Court of Cassation (SCC), Plamen Georgiev - Head of Bulgaria’s anti-corruption commission, and Borislav Sarafov – the National Investigation Service director should either resign or take a long leave. His statement was related to the luxury apartments scandal purchased from “Arteks” company where magistrates were also involved.
Boyko Borissov gave an example with Tsetska Tsacheva and Tsvetan Tsvetanov, who already resigned.
"GERB has set its standards in case of such scandals – either a minister, a deputy minister or a parliamentary group president – everyone resigns. I would recommend the same to anyone engaged in the current scandals. As people from the judiciary are also involved but at the same time, they are too sensitive and do not prefer to be considered as one with others, I must say that there shouldn’t be a double standard: they should either resign or take a long leave until other authorities carry out inspections.
This applies to the Anti-corruption commission, the Supreme Court of Cassation and the National Investigation Service. I do not mention people by their names as they are too sensitive. But there should not be double standard – either an immediate resignation, or a long leave, until the inspections are done most transparently”, announced Borissov at a press conference given at the GERB party headquarters.
