Bulgaria: Murder of Georgi Stoev

Maya of Maya's Corner writes about the murder of writer Georgi Stoev, 35: “In his youth, Stoev was involved in Bulgarian organized crime. […] Later on, he turned his back on mafia and began to write books about it. […] [My husband] usually skips voting, but now every time when Stoev's name is mentioned in the news, says, ‘I will vote next time – and not fot them.’ ‘They’ are today's rulers who transfered their power to the underground world.”
