(DF) President Radev: Prosecutor General’s Resignation Would Be in Civil Society’s, Country’s Interest

July 17 (BTA) – President Rumen Radev Saturday said that Prosecutor General Ivan Geshev’s resignation would be in the interest of the civil society and the country. “This deafening silence about rampant corruption in the highest places, high-profile corruption scandals which were covered by the world media and badly discredited the State, the deafening silence about nontransparent spending of billions of leva of public funds while the prosecution service was aggressively slandering those inconvenient to the power-holders – this is what discredited and delegitimized the prosecution service,” Radev said, commenting on caretaker Justice Minister Yanaki Stoilov’s proposal on Friday that the Supreme Judicial Council (SJC) release Geshev from his post.
