“Prime Minister Borissov has requested from me and Minister Radev to consider the need, which we think does exist, to introduce changes to the regulations on necessary defense and find the right balance for protection of persons and property without violating other legal principles and norms. We will hold discussions with NGOs, magistrates, supreme judges, prosecutors, lawyers, as well as will seek the opinion of MPs and regular citizens, and in a short time a working group will propose the relevant amendments to Art. 12 and following of the Criminal Code,” Tsacheva said.
