MIA claims to have info on suspects over Geshev attack
The Ministry of Internal Affairs (MIA) has specific information about those connected to the 1 May attack on chief prosecutor Ivan Geshev, announced acting Deputy Prime Minister and Minister of Internal Affairs Ivan Demerdzhiev today.
As the volume of data is large, some of it is being processed by analysts from Europol. He declined to give further details, explaining that he is not authorized to disclose it.
Demerdzhiev, commenting on various calls for the chief prosecutor to step down temporarily while the investigation is ongoing, said that he does not want to interfere with the prerogatives of the judiciary. But he stressed that it is proper for the investigation to proceed impartially and the prosecutor's office is aware what that implies.
Gabriel's nomination for PM leaves parties cold
Boyko Borissov today announced the name of the nominee for prime minister - European Commissioner Maria Gabriel, just days before GERB-SDS was due to receive the first mandate. Despite the "undisputed" nomination, as Borissov defined it, other parties offered little support and demanded more talks on priorities and management programs. WCC-DB and Vazrazhdane, which refused to support the first mandate for ideological reasons, kept to their word.
The meetings between Maria Gabriel, and other political parties, will begin tomorrow (May 11) at 10:00 a.m.
Burgas installs fully automated garbage system
A new innovative garbage collection system on the territory of Burgas municipality has entirely replaced the old scattered containers. The new containers are made from metal, and painted with antibacterial paint, which is also non-flammable. Their lids are permanently closed and one can open them either via a foot pedal or manually. This also prevents filling with water during rainfall.
The implemented system also allows upgrading. Containers can be retrofitted with an electronic system for limited access to the volume of a container, i.e. the containers are permanently locked and do not allow vagrants access to their volume, and can be unlocked by the users (residents of neighboring buildings) via a chip, card or mobile application on their phones.
