Two alleged Mafia bosses from the town of Dupnitsa, Plamen Galev and Angel Hristov

11:10 |

Two alleged Mafia bosses from the town of Dupnitsa, Plamen Galev and Angel Hristov, might be facing a long wait despite the fact that their immunity begins at midnight on June 14.According to Bulgaria's Supreme Court of Cassations, the case is within the competency of the Regional Court in the western city of Kyustendil, whose magistrates must rule if and when to release Galev and Hristov.The Galevi defense council - attorneys, Menko Menkov and Iordan Kirov, attempted Saturday to submit with the Kyustendil Court their clients' request to be released from jail. They, however, failed to file the request because the Court is closed over the weekend.
Menkov and Kirov also believe that the procedure might take up to 20 days - the entire period when MP hopefuls are allowed to conduct their election campaign.Galev and Hristov aka the Galevi brothers are set to be released from detention after both being allowed to run for parliamentary seats and thus receiving immunity from prosecution.The news was revealed Friday that Hristov is the only Kyustednil candidate of the Party for Liberal Alternative and Peace - PLAM (FLAME) and his registration documents were submitted Friday afternoon with the Regional Electoral Commission in Kyustendil.On Wednesday, the Regional Electoral Commission confirmed that Galev, had been registered to run in the upcoming general elections.Galev was confirmed as an independent candidate after the Kyustendil Electoral Commission accepted 13 266 of the 14 100 signatures collected to support his candidature.
Galev and Hristov, have been investigated over a long period of time for various crimes in the southwest town of Dupnitsa, most notably racketeering and organized crime.The Sofia City Prosecutor recently officially moved the case against the Galevi brothers to the Sofia City Court and the two are charged with running an organized criminal group.However, as official MP candidates, they receive immunity from prosecution and the Court will not be able to set a date for the trial.
