Traditions, like murder, in Bulgaria die hard

Date: 30.10.2005


Some Balkan traditions in Bulgaria, like murder, die hard, the Economist wrote in a commentary on the latest killing in the country.

On October 26, Emil Kyulev, head of DZI Group, the country's largest financial group, was shot dead as he drove to work in Sofia.

The killing of Emil Kyulev was the latest in a series of contract killings whose frequency has upset the European Commission and prompted warnings that the country may not be able to join the European Union as planned in January 2007.

Economist reminds that just a day before the murder, the European Commission warned Bulgaria that unless it acted to curb crime in the next six months, it would not be able to join the EU on time.

Bulgaria's European dream could also die, says a text under the picture that illustrates Economist's article.
