Evidence has been collected of Ministry of Internal Affairs officials involved in illegal migrant trafficking. This was stated by the acting Deputy Prime Minister and Minister of Internal Affairs Ivan Demerdzhiev after an inspection of the forest roads in the Malko Tarnovo area. There are upcoming changes related to the transfer of employees to ensure better protection of the border, BNT reported.

From the words of the interior minister, it was understood that the evidence is about to be handed over to the prosecutor’s office.

“In the coming days, I will undertake some reshuffles, which will not be related to the dismissal of some employees, but to the transfer of employees, because I think that this way we will more successfully protect the places from where these employees will be transferred,” said Demerdzhiev.

The authorities have declared a war on migrants after a bus full of refugees rammed a police car in Burgas, killing two Interior Ministry officials.

At the beginning of September, the minister announced to “Nova TV” that there were cases in which Border Police officers “escorted” vehicles with migrants, meaning that they let such vehicles pass and did not take any action.

A few days later, he explained that he had evidence of at least 10 border police officers involved in various migrant smuggling schemes, pointing out that there were also suspicions about other of their colleagues, but no evidence of them.
