Activity of centre for integration of ethnic minority children will be rethought, says minister

Sofia. The Ministry of Education and Science will rethink the activity of the Centre for Educational Integration of Children and Students from Ethnic Minorities. This is what Minister Krasimir Valchev said to reporters when asked about an employee of the centre who allegedly organised the protest against Deputy Prime Minister Krasimir Karakachanov, Focus News Agency reports. Minister Valchev said the employee was on unpaid leave during the protest. “I have no reason for disciplinary action, everyone has the right to express their opinion. But I do not think that organising a protest is in line with good professional bearing of civil servants. If she wanted to soundly and emphatically express her attitude at the protest, she could also have requested the termination of her service,” Valchev explained. He noted the centre was funding integration projects of public organisations (schools, kindergartens and municipalities), with only few of the partnerships involving non-governmental organisations.

Sofia. Each municipality should draft a programme to deal with illegal houses and remove them, Deputy Prime Minister and Minister of Defence Krasimir Karakachanov said to reporters in Parliament, Focus News Agency reports. “Especially those built with any materials at hand and dangerous to people should be immediately demolished,” he added.
He said the situation in Voyvodinovo was now calm and people there were satisfied. “Two-thirds of the ghetto was removed and it is now a matter of procedure to remove also the more durable buildings, as they are illegal,” the deputy prime minister said.

Plovdiv. The protest by the residents of Voyvodinovo village will continue this evening at 6.00 pm, Mayor Dimitar Toskov told Focus Radio. “At present Valentin Dimov, who was attacked by Gypsies, is in hospital and, according to information from his father, things are not good, he is going to have a complex surgery,” the mayor said. The victim has multiple fractures and broken bones on the face, the sinuses. The 33-year-old man, a former military, was suddenly attacked on Epiphany after he rebuked two young men who were randomly walking on the road. According to the mayor, the situation is now seemingly calm, but the gendarmerie and police remain in the village. The Gypsies stay locked in their homes.
“The Gypsies in Voyvodinovo are nearly 250 of all 2,500 people living in the village. All of their houses are illegal,” said Dimitar Toskov. The buildings will be demolished, but the procedure will take time.
The mayor expects that people’s protests will continue. He said previous conflicts were not that intense. “Now there is a clear civil position,” Dimitar Toskov said.
