Bulgaria: Protesters file lawsuit against Parliament Speaker

Protesters have filed a lawsuit against Bulgarian National Assembly Speaker Tsveta Karayancheva, according to their lawyer, Nikolai Hadjjgenov.

The lawsuit was filed in the Sofia District Court over statements by the Speaker of the National Assembly that oligarchs from abroad were financing anti-government protests and the organizers of the protests.

Commenting on the news of a lawsuit against her, Tsveta Karayancheva said that possible lawsuits on this issue do not bother her in any way.

As for the protests, they continued on Monday night without any incidents, in the presence of a small police force to deal with any incidents. However, the citizens closed Orlov Most again until midnight./ibna
