Bulgaria's President, Rumen Radev, on Wednesday condemned prosecution claims that he may have committed a crime related to conflicts of interest, accusing it devaluing important legal concepts and of "sensationalism".
It comes after the state prosecution led by Ivan Geshev on January 28 said it had evidence that a crime may have occurred.
From January 21 to 23, President Rumen Radev will visit Israel. The visit of the Bulgarian head of state is at the invitation of his Israeli counterpart, President Reuven Rivlin, to mark the 75th anniversary of the release of Auschwitz prisoners and the International Day of Commemoration in memory of the victims of the Holocaust.
The New Year's season fills all Bulgarians with hopes of health, a better future and confidence that there is a place for everyone in society - for the old and the lonely, for the thousands facing penury, and most of all for the children, said President Rumen Radev in his New Year's address to the Bulgarian nation.
Bulgarian tourism continued its sustainable development in 2019 despite the difficulties, strong international competition and the bankruptcy of the Thomas Cook tour operator, Minister of Tourism Nikolina Angelkova said at a meeting of the Council of Ministers today, the press office of her ministry said.
