(DF) Caretaker Government Dismisses Head of State Agency for National Security

May 26 (BTA) – The caretaker government has passed a decision to relieve of his post the head of the State Agency for National Security (SANS), Dimiter Georgiev, and moved a proposal to the President to decree the dismissal, caretaker Prime Minister Stefan Yanev told the media after the regular weekly meeting of the cabinet on Wednesday. Plamen Tonchev is proposed to replace Georgiev. Tonchev currently heads a regional division of SANS. Yanev said that the decision on Georgiev’s dismissal was made on the grounds that he created a precedent that harmed the reputation of SANS and gave rise to suspect that he undertook politically-motivated acts at a position which is de-politicized by law.
