Sofia. The Special Prosecutor's Office has challenged the decision of the first instance court to release the 16-year-old student from Plovdiv who was accused of terrorism. The young man was released at the end of last week.
"The threat to the security of many Bulgarian citizens is still present, the boy should be placed in an isolated special environment where psychologists and psychiatrists could work with him," said the spokesperson of the Appellate Prosecutor's Office, Siyka Mileva, bTV reported.
"We have found explosives unprecedented in our new history, dangerous even for Europe," Mileva added.
She said the police had been tipped not by boy’s parents but did not specify who the source was.
The 16-year-old boy was arrested after the investigators established his contacts with a radical Islamist group who recruited him to plan a terrorist attack. In his home police found explosives, bomb plans and an ISIS flag.
