Sofia, January 25, 2016/Independent Balkan News Agency

Ten business associations representing foreign investors in Bulgaria have issued an open letter to Bulgaria’s state leaders on January 25 2016, calling for a systemic approach to solving the issues in the judiciary, one that is based on rule of law and the reform strategy approved by Parliament last year.

The letter, addressed to Prime Minister Boiko Borissov and his four deputy prime ministers, Justice Minister Ekaterina Zaharieva, President Rossen Plevneliev and Parliament Speaker Tsetska Tsacheva, was signed by the American Chamber of Commerce (AmCham) in Bulgaria, as well as the chambers of commerce representing German, French, British, Belgian and Italian businesses in Bulgaria, among others.
