EE: Our eyes are not “wide shut” regarding Bulgaria

We will not comment on the specific events taking place in Bulgaria, European Commission spokesman Eric Mamer said today in response to a reporter’s question.

According to him, however, the European Commission is in the process of monitoring compliance with the rule of law in Bulgaria through the Cooperation and Verification Mechanism.

This is our tool for monitoring respect for the rule of law, said the spokesman, who added that nothing has changed in this regard.

“Brussels’ eyes are definitely not ‘wide shut’ with regard to Bulgaria”, he added./ibna
