This was announced by Interior Minister Kalin Stoyanov at a briefing on the occasion of the violence during the protest against the BFS.
“I have ordered internal checks. We need systematic work by psychologists with the police. They are under enormous pressure. I am 100% in the position of Prime Minister Acad. Nikolay Denkov, that this cannot be done and the guilty must be punished. I congratulate all conscientious employees, have mastered this unprecedented vandal aggression. You were insulted, spat on, you were pelted with bombs and yet you managed,” the minister pointed out.

One of the checks for violence was ordered by the Ministry of Internal Affairs, and the other by the minister and was carried out by the Directorate “Inspectorat” and the National Police, stated the Chief Secretary of the Ministry of Internal Affairs, Chief Commissioner Zhivko Kotsev. “We should not put all police officers under the same denominator. Please stop pitting the public against the police. We must together oppose aggression, hooliganism. Therefore, all colleagues who did their job in good faith and prevented much more damage can count on our support,” the chief secretary added. And he called on people who do not have expertise in the “Security” sector to stop playing politics.
