BULGARIA: Dispute Erupts over Andreev Archive

21 January 2003

The Bulgarian online news resource, novinite.com reports that the Sofia police, on orders of the district governor, have helped the newly formed State Commission on Information Security take over the offices of the so-called Andreev Commission, which was set up after the fall of communism to look into the dossiers compiled by the communist special services and expose their collaborators.

Evgeni Dimitrov, the deputy chairman of the Andreev Commission, protested the forceful takeover indicating that he had not been notified about the governor’s order and would protest before the Supreme Administrative Court. The Andreev Commission was to be dissolved after the government adopted a new law on classified information in April.
