The activity of the Department of Internal Security of the Ministry of Interior at the Third Police Directorate in Plovdiv is of enormous importance. As we have already informed, the director of the regional police department Samuil Hadzhiev was arrested. It was later found that 12 more police officers had been arrested for appalling practices, to say the least. This includes a roof over drug distribution, extortion, corruption and crimes against the judiciary. This became clear a few minutes ago during a spontaneous meeting in front of the building of the infamous RPD by District Prosecutor Rumen Popov.
The Third Regional Police Department in Plovdiv, over the years has become a symbol of irregularities, pressure on people, the calling on of innocent people on demand, umbrellas over illegal business and other terrifying practices, according to the confessions of the victim. It has long been implicated in a number of high profile incidents, its staff seldom bold and behaving like thugs. No wonder then that there is currently an internal security raid, followed by the arrest of the chief, the confiscation of documents and a search.
Caretaker Interior Minister Boyko Rashkov has arrived Plovdiv personally.
