"The threats are to buildings, to schools where elections will be held. Why not to the universities? Apparently the goal is to attack the election process. The actions of the Ministry of Internal Affairs are quite adequate, they still have 30 hours, which is not a short time, to carry out an inspection , to conditionally seal these schools and polling stations, in order to prevent the introduction of devices, even camouflage ones," commented the former head of NSBON and NSO, Gen.

Rumen Milanov in the "Day ON AIR" studio.

He recalled how 15-20 years ago, in landmark cases, there was always a bomb threat in court.

And then strict entry checks were introduced.

According to him, it is frivolous for directors to be forced to sign declarations of acceptance of responsibility. 

"They don't have the competence to assess the situations. We need a protocol, and this is the competence of the Ministry of the Interior. This issue must be decided categorically, and not for everyone to decide on their own," urged Gen.



Milanov: Billions are needed to fight illegal migration

He was categorical to Bulgaria ON AIR that no one should refuse to vote for fear that an explosive device might be planted.

"Even if they tell me that there is a bomb in the school, I will go to vote," said the former head of the NSO.

In relation to vote buying, he emphasized that this crime cannot be reduced to zero.

He cited as the main problem the sense of impunity that remains, as it is for traffickers of illegal migrants.

"Our whole process is ineffective - from the detection of the crime, indictment, sentencing, imprisonment, serving the sentence. The penalties are high enough, it would not be right for us to look for ways to increase the penalties. They should be commensurate with the severity of the crimes. The main question is about the effectiveness of the administration of justice and the execution of the punishment. The sentence for human trafficking cannot be from 1 to 6 years, and to give the minimum, impose 4-3 years on him," Gen.


The former head of the anti-mafia expressed his concern about the attempts to worsen the crime situation.

"I notice that paranoia is chasing me more, but attempts are being made to return to the old days, to use similar structures that raise their heads and collect some not very well-spent money on the backs of working people," said Gen.


As a cure, he pointed to the creation of a government and state management, because "when the cat sleeps, the mice play."
