Bulgaria: Investigation in the offices of the company of the case distribution system

As part of an ongoing investigation, the Prosecutor’s Office has made seizures from the offices of the company “Smart Systems 2010”, which implemented the system of random distribution of cases in 2015.

The process began due to doubts that the separation of cases could be manipulated even after a check on the security of the system. As such, the Supreme Judicial Council issued a decision on the termination of the contract and the development of a new system for the distribution of cases.

The prosecution began the pre-trial proceedings in the case after being referred by six members of the Supreme Judicial Council. Former Justice Minister Hristo Ivanov and IT expert Vasil Velichkov testified about the case, playing a key role in late 2014 in changing the random distribution system./ibna
