The law is clear – the responsibility lies with the organizers and the Ministry of the Interior. This is what Sofia Mayor Vasil Terziev wrote on Facebook about yesterday’s protest.
I want to specify that when coordinating the protest with me, none of the responsible institutions gave a sign that provocations and problems were expected, he pointed out. Terziev pointed out that only with such signals, information and expectations from the law enforcement authorities, the mayor may not approve the event.

“It hurt me both as a citizen and as the mayor of Sofia to see how everything around us is destroyed, burned and broken intentionally”he commented.
Already last night I ordered the area to be fully restored, Terziev noted and explained that the emergency teams of the Metropolitan Municipality were on the ground all night, and their employees did not go home to their families to take care of repairing the damage.

Over 80 elements of the city’s infrastructure have been identified as damaged after yesterday’s events – broken or burnt pegs, containers and bins, flowerpots, bicycle racks, Terziev pointed out and added that a municipal police car was also set on fire. The capital municipality will ask the organizer of the protest to compensate the damage to the public infrastructure, the mayor said.
