GERB deputy Delyan Dobrev announced that he will file a report with the prosecutor’s office and the National Security Service against Prime Minister Nikolay Denkov and members of his cabinet. The reason for this, according to him, is the non-fulfillment of the fuel compensation law, which provides for a discount of 73 cents per liter.
Here is what else Dobrev wrote on his Facebook profile:
“Denkov went too far! The law on fuel compensation with 73 cents per liter was stillborn and that’s why they didn’t implement it. No, it’s not stillborn! For your government, the interests of Bulgaria and the Bulgarian people are stillborn.
In the coming days, I will file a report with the Chief Prosecutor and the head of DANS against the prime minister and the responsible members of his cabinet.
There is, in my opinion, no political expediency in this, through inaction or formal actions presented as the implementation of the law, to arrive at a situation where it is necessary for the legislative power to require the executive power to fulfill its legal obligations.
It is incompatible with the functioning of the rule of law that the responsible minister “kindly” failed to do what the law ordered him to do, and this failure continued for months without any objective reasons for it.
Regardless of what legal qualification could be given to these actions and inactions, there is no doubt that there is a gross disregard for the laws in a rule of law state in which the State should be the embodiment of the law in society. The non-implementation of the Law by institutions that should be the guarantor of its strict compliance and application raises the question of whether foreign interests – financial and political – are being served to the detriment of Bulgarian citizens and the economic stability of the country.
I will ask the Chief Prosecutor and the DANS to request the relevant documents and information regarding the fulfillment of the obligations under the Law, ensuring its entry into force and its implementation.
I will ask the Chief Prosecutor and DANS to request information from the Ministry of Finance, whether it is necessary to notify the Law and receive a positive opinion from the EC under &2, para. 1, item 2 of the PZR of the Law.
I believe that there is a reason to take action to clarify the presented facts and circumstances, and depending on the results of the inspection, I hope that action will be taken, including by contacting the relevant law enforcement authorities,” wrote GERB MP Delyan Dobrev.
