Plovdiv. Gypsies in Bulgaria have become extremely arrogant and the tolerance of Bulgarian society is wearing thin, Minister of Defence Krasimir Karakachanov said to reporters with regard to the latest case of assault on a serviceman in the village of Voyvodinovo, Focus Radio has reported. Karakachanov pointed out that a policeman was beaten a few days ago, and now a military, and that it cannot continue anymore. Minister Karakachanov is in Voyvodinovo to discuss with the mayor of the Municipality and with the Ministry of Interior regional director what measures will be taken regarding the specific case.
“The truth is that we need a comprehensive programme to solve the Gypsy issue. People will not tolerate a part of the population who have only rights and do not want to understand that they have duties as well and must respect the law,” the minister said. According to Karakachanov, the measures have to be a tie-up of social benefits with education and work. According to him, Bulgaria should stop listening to all sorts of Brussels officials and human rights activists.

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.
