Bulgaria's corrupt judges unassailable

Bulgaria's Supreme Administrative Court on Tuesday acquitted three judges of having helped relatives acquire plots of land on the Black Sea coast one year ago at extremely low prices by presenting them as needy people. Bulgaria's corrupt judges are all in league with each other, criticises the daily Trud: "The upshot is that it is only normal and fair that relatives of Bulgarian judges make use of privileges that would be unthinkable for normal citizens. Not only the fact of the judges being above the law is scandalous, but also the fact that not a single of their colleagues from the Supreme Administrative Court declined to rule on the case for reasons of prejudice. ... Against this background the demand of some judges for the creation of a disciplinary court for members of the judiciary sounds downright naive. We have more than enough courts, they just have to start working properly. And when they do, none of them will be above the law."
