Bulgaria’s Interior Minister Buchvarova: Surprise Night Inspection of Sunny Beach

Written by on August 28, 2016 in Leisure, Tourism - No comments

Bulgarian Interior Minister Roumyana Buchvarova paid a surprise night visit to the country’s Black Sea resort of Sunny Beach, observing police on duty at checkpoints and checks carried out in bars and shops.

The August 27 visit by Buchvarova, who is also one of Bulgaria’s deputy prime ministers, came after some months of high-profile police and tax authority operations ordered in the wake of the June 8 shootout at a beach bar in which convicted organised crime group head Dimitar “Mityo The Eyes” was critically injured.

Police checkpoints have been set up in the resort and a series of National Revenue Agency inspections of places of entertainment and shops have been carried out, in the resort that Prosecutor-General Sotir Tsatsarov termed in July “a state within a state”.
