Controversial Nomination for Human Rights Award Causes Major Outcry in Bulgaria

A controversial nomination for the annual Human of the Year Award of the Bulgarian Helsinki Committee (BHC) has caused a major outcry in the country.

The reason for the discontent is the nomination of Australian citizen Jock Palfreeman, who is convicted of the murder of Bulgarian student Andrey Monov and is sentenced to twenty years in prison.
