Ivan Geshev is the likely next Prosecutor General, Bulgaria at risk of wiping off pig industry because of swine fever crisis

[div class='center_orange']Top news:[class='center_orange' div] The unopposed candidate for next Prosecutor General is not a fan of separation of powers “I don’t necessarily agree with the view of these – let’s call them right extremists – that the legislative, executive and justice branches of power must be separated”, Ivan Geshev, the only candidate for Prosecutor General said this week. And why should he be? After all, the purpose of it is to ensure the power of the state is not concentrated in the hands of one group or individual. And for the life of him, the likely future Prosecutor General, cannot grasp the reasons for this unnecessary complication. In Geshev’s defense, he knows well that in Bulgaria this is more of a formality. Especially from the standpoint of the Prosecutor’s Office. The Bulgarian Prosecutor General has near-unlimited powers and is not accountable to any other state institution. The position bares the country’s totalitarian past and has been the foremost subject of criticism by the Council of Europe for over a decade. The institution is semi-democratic at best by its very design. The repeated recommendations to reform the position have not achieved any results. Instead, the prosecutorial system has been subject to consistent exploit by the governments to protect friends and go after enemies. Over time the Prosecutor’s Office and the oligarchy have merged to sustain the captured state, keeping both more or less dependent on one another, although admittedly the Prosecutor General might have a slightly upper hand. In this context it was only a matter of time before a figure, ready to claim the right to unconditional raw power take the office. If - as the political scientist Evgeny Daynov suggested – Geshev declared himself as a future dictator, this will not be due to a sudden and unexpected turn of events. It is the result of attentive and purposeful nourishment of the prosecution into a dictatorial incubator. Ivan Geshev is famous for being the unapologetic “bad boy” at the top of the Prosecutor’s Office. He is deputy to Prosecutor General Sotir Tsatsarov and head of the Specialized Prosecution. The latter is one of several bodies, which borderline the legal realm, along with the so-called Anticorruption Commission. They serve as a handy tool to silence and pressure opponents under the pretext of fighting corruption. These institutions have not made a single real case against high level corruption in the country since their inception. But their lack of genuine result is matched only by their hyperactivity in making grand accusations and generate content for the media, especially if owned by media mogul Delyan Peevski. Acting with no regard for procedure or – especially – presumption of innocence, these officers like to organize flashy raids and arrests, freeze funds with no apparent reason, boast about catching “criminals” and “crushing ..
