Bulgaria to reimpose curfew in all refugee shelters

Bulgaria will reintroduce a curfew at all refugee shelters in the country within a few days, State Agency for Refugees head Nikola Kazakov said on January 29.

Kazakov headed the agency from 2010 to October 2013, when he was dismissed by the now-departed Bulgarian Socialist Party cabinet for what it described as underperformance in the face of the sharp increase in the number of refugees entering Bulgaria at the time.

The centre-right coalition cabinet that took office in November 2014 re-appointed Kazakov after the departure of his successor, Nikolai Chirpanliev.
