The irregularity was committed because duplicating documents had been presented to the authorities. According to the prosecutors, the negligence was committed not knowingly by the local land commission. Therefore, the prosecuting magistracy will not bring any charges over the matter. The prosecutors have asked the Forestry Agency to take measures as a competent body.
Furthermore, prosecutors have found no irregularities committed by public officials in the return of royal property in the Tsarska Bistritsa Palace, the Vrana Residence and the Sitnyakovo Palace. The mayor of Sofia at the time, Stefan Sofiyanski, and Regional Governor Olimpi Kutev acted in accordance with the law when they returned property to the heirs of Ferdinand and Boris III.
Similarly, prosecutors found no irregularities in the case of royal property in Banya, near Karlovo in Central Bulgaria.
Simeon Saxe-Coburg-Gotha's party, the Simeon II National Movement (SNM) has declared its content at the Prosecution Office's conduct in the matter, the party has told BTA. The prosecutors' report is yet another demonstration, SNM said, of the "populist and party-orientated interests" of the long campaign for the restitution of royal properties.
The results in this case demonstrate private property in Bulgaria is protected.
