After a post-midnight hearing, Sofia City Council released Ataka leader Volen Siderov and MP Desislav Chukolov on bail of 6000 leva (about 3063 euro).

Siderov and Chukolov had been taken into custody on November 17 on charges of hooliganism and assault in connection with an October incident at the National Academy for Film and Theatre Arts in the Bulgarian capital city.

The National Assembly earlier had voted by a large majority to remove their constitutional immunity from prosecution as MPs.
