The actions of the Bulgarian government to deal with corruption and disregard for human rights are insufficient, this is stated in the report of the US State Department on compliance with human rights for 2022, BNR reported.

The document presented on Monday said steps had been taken in Bulgaria to investigate officials accused of human rights abuses and corruption, but there was a problem of impunity.

Among the country's significant problems noted are the brutal treatment of groups such as detainees, migrants and children in institutions.

Arbitrary arrests, "serious problems" with the independence of the judiciary, a "serious" level of corruption and crimes against minorities, including ethnic and sexual, are also cited.

As an example of an illegal arrest, the detention of former Prime Minister Boyko Borisov is cited

Boyko Metodiev Borisov is the Prime Minister of the Republic of Bulgaria. He was born on June 13, 1959.

The authors of the report found a high level of political and economic influence on the media combined with high levels of ownership concentration.

In releasing the all-country reports, Secretary of State Anthony Blinken said the reports were fact-based and the same writing standards applied.
