With the majority of votes, the Constitutional Court, during today’s session didn’t start a procedure for evaluation of the constitutionality of Articles 1 and 2 of the Law on Amnesty, on basis of which people who were involved in the attacks at the Parliament on the 27th of April 2017 were pardoned.

The motion was filed by Mitko Chavkov, the former Director of the Bureau of Public Security, who claims that the selective pardoning is violating the basic freedoms and human rights guaranteed by the Constitution.

The Constitutional judges think that there is no room for starting a procedure and that the Law on Amnesty should remain.
