Bulgaria: Justice minister resigns

Demonstrations on the streets of the capital Sofia demand prime minister Boyko Borissov and prosecutor general Ivan Geshev step down amid alleged links to mafia and oligarchs.

Bulgaria’s justice minister Danail Kirilov resigned on Wednesday amid criticism of his failure to address corruption as the country faced a fiftieth consecutive day of anti-government protests.

Kirilov is the fifth government minister to resign since protests swept the Balkan country in July in response to raids on the offices of President Rumen Radev, a vocal critic of the incumbent government.

For more than a month, demonstrations on the streets of the capital Sofia have demanded prime minister Boyko Borissov and prosecutor general Ivan Geshev step down amid alleged links to mafia and oligarchs.

Barricades in Sofia and other cities across the country, including Varna and Plovdiv, remained in place on Thursday as protesters continued to voice their anger at alleged government corruption, including a controversial proposal for a new constitution that would keep the current centre-right government in power.
