Parliament overrides presidential veto on penal code

Sofia. The Parliament rejected President Rumen Radev’s veto on the latest amendments to the Penal Code, Focus News Agency reports. 137 MPs voted in support of the amendments, 43 voted against them. The provisions were supported by GERB, United Patriots, MRF, Volya and independent MPs, and opposed only by BSP.
Focus recalls: On December 19 the head of state returned the law for new debates. He questioned provisions allowing for a 48-hour delay of the notification upon detention. According to President Radev, the possibility that parents will not be informed about detained minors within up to 24 hours is even more alarming. This is Radev’s 12th veto. Until now the Parliament has backed only one of his presidential vetoes – the one regarding post-privatisation control.
