turned into a symbol of the kidnapped children for the whole of South-eastern
And the struggle of his father against this cruel phenomenon attracted the attention of the whole world.
The brave and uncompromising voice of the father has become proverbial but against him and Savestin is standing their own state. Savestin is an example of the doom of each Bulgarian child before and after it becomes a victim.
Due to the fault of the Ministry of Interior, the Investigation Office, two governments and the Parliament
the child was not found. The authorities reject in general the existence of trade and traffic of Bulgarian children.
The photographs of Savestin, documents, articles and how to help the kidnapped child you will find here below in

You are here now- Part one
In the first part of the site are given
the portrait photographs of Savestin
and how you could help him.
Chronological description of the kidnapping of Savestin
and more documents- see part two
My son, if something happens to me …, if we never see each other again,
you must know that I love you so much and that I have never betrayed even for a minute.
Forgive me for not being the strongest father.
I am just an ordinary man and a whole country – your Fatherland – is against me.
Forgive me, son! Please forgive me!
The undisputable fact that Savestin was kidnapped, was established by the Investigation Office of Sofia
as early as March 15, 1999- 2 years after the date of the kidnapping…
But as long as 5 years after the above date the truth about the kidnapping and the investigation materials have
kept hidden from the father and from the society until
But no formal investigation is made to find Savestin even until this day… The way in which the investigation
is carried out, cannot ensure the finding out neither the perpetrators nor the whereabouts of Savestin! Why!?
THE CHILD WAS BORN IN 22 SEPTEMBER 1988 IN BULGARIA
The portrait of Savestin
at the age of 16 - 18 computer actualized
THE POLICE SABOTAGE THE UPDATING OF THE MISSING BULGARIAN CHILDREN`S PORTRAITS.
It is on purpose that no investigation has been organised and carried out on Savestin for as long as 8 years.
If his portrait photographs are not published by the printed and other visual media in the countries quoted here below by me NO POLICE OR ANY OTHER OFFICE IN THE WORLD SHALL HAVE THE OPPORTUNITY TO RECEIVE SIGNALS ON THE CHILD ITSLEF AND ON HIS LOCATION. THERE IS NO OTHER WAY FOR SAVESTIN TO BE RECOGNIZED AND FOUND. The identity of Savestin has been changed and it is senseless to look for him by his real names…
PLEASE SPONSOR AND FINANCE this most safe chance so that I receive information and find my child. Beside being the most secure and sure, it is also the cheapest way. About 15000 EURO shall be needed. I have been destroyed and it is a lot of money for me. Please help. Savestin can rely on me only and on your help and assistance. PLEASE HELP!
The kidnapped Savestin could be and should be traced down predominately in the following countries: Italy, Germany, France, Greece, Turkey, South Africa, USA, Canada, Australia, Iran, Algeria, Spain, Sweden, Switzerland, Argentina.
The child has most probably passed the Cyprus and Israeli borders, or Romanian, Hungarian and Dutch territories.
PLEASE HELP ME! I TRULY RELY ON YOUR HUMAN CONSCIENCE!
Here print the advertising squares with text and photos of Savestin for publication in the press and TV broadcasting. You can also personally organize tracing down of the child.

1. Read about that why the country is guilty about the poor people and about the violation of children’s and victims’ rights
A FATHER IS AWAITING FOR CONSCIENCE, IS THERE ANYBODY WISHING TO HELP HIM?
BY BEING CONVINCED that children’s interest are
of a first-priority importance in all aspects related to them,
as well as on the ground of Article 9 and Article 10 of the
European Convention, I do DECLARE that I go on a
HUNGER STRIKE, starting from 25 May 2004,
in front of the European Commission and European Parliament in Brussels,
and in Strasburg - Council of Europe, if necessary.
My child is a victim of a trade and traffic criminal action. His name means “conscience”.
Beautiful, innocent conscience, kidnapped by an evil hand.
I have lived already seven years in unbearably helpless situation. I AM ASHAMED WHILE EATING, FEELING GUILTY WHILE SLEEPING, BY BREATHING PAINFULLY, for my child is still in a nightmare of the uncertainty. The criminals are brazenly well-organized, in contrast to the governments and the international society; they are only on paper. I wish to lay down my life not as a terrorist-suicide, but in the name of the children-victims. My purpose is to catalyze the effective governmental actions towards the protection of the innocence and conscience of the mankind in the name of children. I wish to trace out of path of the victims towards a more fair and legal order. Because it turned out that there is no single international organization to effectively render support or protection to me. Why?
I GO ON HUNGRY STRIKE IN SIGN OF PROTEST AGAINST THE TRADING WITH AND TRAFFIC OF BULGARIAN CHILDREN,
AGAINST THE COMPLETE INACTION ON THE PART OF THE BULGARIAN STATE AGAINST SUCH INCOMPARABLE EVIL.
I WILL GO WITHOUT A FOOD UNTIL THE BULGARIAN GOVERNMENT UNDERTAKES THE PUBLIC ENGAGEMENTS, OR UNTIL THE MOMENT WHEN THE EUROPEAN INSTITUTIONS AND WEIGHTY POLITICIANS BECOME GUARANTOR OF:
1. Final terms setting within which the Bulgarian authorities to may completely realize the rights of the Bulgarian children, and these right to be approved by the UN Conventions on the Children’s Rights.
2. The acceptance by the Bulgarian legal authorities of a reasonable and effective Act on the Children’s Rights. Establishment of a Children’s Court;
3. The effective introduction into the Bulgarian punitive and civil law of:
v Provisions of Article 3, Article 8, Article 11, Article 16, Article 33, Article 34, Article 35, Article 39 of the UN Convention on the Children’s Rights;
v Covenants of the Facultative protocol to the UN Convention regarding the trading with children and the children prostitution;
v Covenants of the Hague Convention on the civil aspects of the international children’s kidnapping.
4. The principles of the Declaration regarding the main principles of justice related to the victims of crimes and of abuse of power, to be introduced without reservation into the Bulgarian legislation, so that the social, administrative and court procedures to fully reflect the victims’ needs.
5. The victims of crimes to be treated with compassion and their dignity to be respected by:
v Being provided with information regarding their rights and the necessary help in the full course of the hearing of the case;
v National fund for granting of financial compensation to be established;
v Material, medical, psychological and social aid to be render to them by the public and governmental authorities;
v Police officers, social services officers and those of the system of justice to pass special training, so that to can understand the victims’ needs.
IT IS NOT LIKE THIS IN BULGARIA. WHY AND UNTIL WHEN?
6. Immediate organization of the effective investigation concerning each kidnapped Bulgarian child. The guilty cops to be put to trial!
DEAR EUROPEAN MEN, PLEASE HELP US NOW AND AT ONCE. WHAT I ASK IS OF INTERNATIONAL AND NATIONAL INTEREST. THE BULGARIAN CHILDREN NEEDS YOUR HUMAN POLITICAL WISDOM.
FURTHERMORE, PLEASE BE MORE WATCHFUL TOWARDS THE PROTECTION OF OUR CONTINENT BY:
First: New, additional Protocol to the European Convention to be elaborated within reasonable term, by which protocol (on the ground of Article 6 and article 13), the rights of the victims of crimes to be explicitly entered as main rights, aimed at undertaking of new actions for ensuring collective guarantees towards the effective acknowledgement and protection of any such rights. Nowadays, the rights of the accused and sentenced criminal are protected, but not those of their victims. Why?!
Second – The International Organization for Criminal Acts “INTERPOL” to take prompt actions for investigating and establishing the place of the kidnapped children – victims of trading and traffic. Now, INTERPOL is ineffective system. Why and until when?
Third – IOCA INTERPOL to give daily reports before the Council of Europe about the European children being detected and found.
Please, ask yourselves what is the actual use of INTERPOL for the kidnapped children?
DEAR PEOPLE, LET’S SAVE OUR CONSCIENCE!
Enclosure: My open letter of 20 October 3002 against the trading and traffic with Bulgarian children, as addressed to the European Parliament, European Commission, Council of Europe, Bulgarian Premier Minister and President of the Republic of Bulgaria.

COUNCIL OF EUROPE
Dear Mr. President,
It comes out, that for me it is easier to be accepted and listened to with understanding in European institutions than in Bulgaria.
Our country is a source for traffic of people. Children and women are sold. For shame the government is keeping silence like a criminal. It doesn’t participate.
You, Mr. President, have been silent too for long years as a Bulgarian deputy and as a leader of Bulgarian Socialistic Party. Now you are keeping silence as a President of the republic. Such a behavior is accessory to a crime.
Anyone who knows about child kidnapping and don’t undertake what is necessary commits a crime. Anyone who knows about the drama with Bulgarian children, but doesn’t make what is necessary according to its state post and possibilities, accessing a crime against the mankind. Article 3 from United Nations convention for children’s right says that:” The highest child’s interests are first-rate consideration in all activities connected with children.” Here is not like that!
In Bulgaria the Police is monopolist and still is militarized militiaman’s pyramid. There is missing a real possibility for civil control. The militia is absolutely uncontrolled institution serving the authority and mafia. It hides behind operative data and investigations. The militia decides how is the truth looks like. Instead of profesionalists and specialists, in resent years are hatched “generals”. Cannot fight criminality with paid ratings and media heroes – it multiplies uncontrolled. Again we have unqualified and inadequate police control. There is demonstrative murders and explosions, armed banditism all over the country like never before. If your child is missing you have to forget, that you ever had child. The instruction for searching is secret, which is in traficants favor, while the society is kept in dark. For a second year the Ministry of Interior sabotage unique computer methodology for actualizing the photos of missing children. Everything is done in traficants use and to the detriment of the victims.
Legislation is missing. Intentionally it has been kept legal and normative vacuum. Instead of meaningful low for child was created another one bureaucrative machine called State agency for child protection. It is full of bureaucracy that is not on its place, is not qualified and couldn’t be effective. The results are sad and terrible. The government doesn’t care.
By the way, Mr. President, please be aware and finally answer to the materials which excited the people in Bulgaria and in Europe. Please, be on the victim’s side – present and possible. The whole country cried many times for the child with the name of conscience. How did you, Mr. President, help Savestin?
He never answered to me!
Dear Baroness Emma Nicholson of Winterburne,
Dear Mr. Gunter Verhougen,
Dear Mr. Alvaro Gil Robles,
I am trying to illustrate the sad Bulgarian reality, giving you the opportunity directly to follow the reactions of the authorities.
Savestin is one of the innocent victims. He becomes a cruel symbol of predestine for any Bulgarian child. They don’t look for him because of it. In order to punish me, his father, because I dare to fight for my son and all the other children like him. Inspite of the thousands of signatures the whole country from in his defense, he intentionally didn’t get any chance to be found, for edification. In order no one else to imagine that could fight for his child. There is weakness and fear all over the country. People in a normal country think how to help you, but here cops are trying to make you guilty just because you want to save your dear child. It is sinister!
Let the authorities tell us if they found any missing child. It is intolerable in the XXI century that, human beings from Europe have to pay bloody tax!
Dear Baroness, dear Sirs,
I believe in your honest, humanism and political wisdom. You are influent and respected persons, I can trust on. Here is nobody. The militia commits self-suicides, crashes or getting people in madhouses, if it decides to. But they cannot destroy the love to my son, to children and my faith in good. And the humans and children rights are something really good.
Bulgaria 06.11.2002 Me, father (I don’t have other sin):
6. Here is something for the higher Militia brood
Bulgarian state turned to ashes both my heart and my soul. I have the only
chance now to let my body to fire. The Government, the Ministry of Interior
and the President refuse to circulate even the portraits of Savestin. I see
no other ultimate way to make
I was left in total shock when I heard the news that the Bulgarian President was Agent “Gotse” … As there is no other head of state, I am forced to invite you once again to demonstrate at least a bit of moral and real cooperation in protection of the rights of my kidnapped child Savestin. Your potential is huge. The President embodies the unity of the nation, but you viciously have obliterated me and Savestin as citizens of this country. Why?
Savetsin has done anything wrong to anybody and has never insulted you. It is not me, but him that you must help.
The Ministry of Interior and the Government of Sergey Stanishev impede the search for Savestin. I launched a lawsuit against you and I am determined to do it again, but you are lowering in a disgraceful, shameful and accomplice-like silence against the innocence of Savestin.
you explain to people, why are you so ashamed of standing up and speaking in
defense of a child who fell victim to human trafficking? Because
you were informer for the secret services? Because you are more pleased with
the acts of violence of these or those militiamen- generals such as Slavcho
Bossilkov, Vassil Vassilev, Razboyko Borissov and many other social dregs?
Because the trade with children and “white slaves” involves councillors and
comrades of yours positioned now on the high echelon of power? Because there
is a real flow of many, many money and then you find them useful as black
boxes to pay for expensive elections and buying more and more power? Is it
for this that
Denouncement of these questions torturing me can be made by yourself by proposing specific and positive steps in favour of Savestin. Namely, to cooperate (including your auspices!) for the circulation of portraits and personal data of Savestin in mass media of specific Western countries, and also to hire detectives, as it is evident that Bulgaria has not institution engaged to search for children missing abroad. You are in control of the services and they do know how Savestin was traded off. I am convinced you know it as well, but hide it or you are reluctant that anybody could make use of this information.
It is simply said: In the deeds you will know them! And your deeds are a series of inactivity harmful for the victims of trafficking. If Savestin was an orphan who would have then helped him? Who is in charge of searching of missing orphans?
For a tenth in a row time I am officially inviting you to a personal business meeting in time convenient for yourself. I am not a criminal, nor a general – Mafioso. It is because of that you have a loathing meeting face to face with a father? Why do you keep on running? Because of you, of the premier, ministers and generals, I have lost any trust and respect for the institutions of the Presidency, the Ministry of Interior, the Council of Ministers. I am determined to attract the attention of world media to search for Savestin by making a bet on myself. The last peaceful recourse I have decided to make is TO SET MYSELF ON FIRE AS A TORCH OF SACRIFICE IN BRUSSELS, at the same place I sat my hunger strike in 2004.
I intend to do it on 22 September – the birthday of Savestin and the Day of Independence of Bulgaria!!! Unlike you, I have always acted in an open and sincere manner to manifest my intentions. It is all your fault and of Stanishev!!!
Misters Alvaro Gil Robles, Franco Frattini, Olli Rehn, Josep Borrell Fontelles,
do remain hopeful that you attend personally my act of setting on fire. I
have no other way to go. Somebody should highlight the conscience of
Herein I am enclosing:
1. Print-outs of pictures of Savestin – completely useless and lacking quality – as published by Interpol. The first one is a smashed black-and-white strip of a newspaper, and the second one is completely unrecognizable, smeared photo copy. The Ministry of Interior is purposefully impeding the search to make it sure that there is no chance left for identifying Savestin. Without identification, there are no signals and in practice no search is possible. The Ministry of Interior and the Prime Minister Sergey Stanishev and the President Parvanov are pretending to be blind and stand still on purpose. Reference: http://www.interpol.int
OPEN LETTER from me to the European Institutions is deposited at the Council
of Ministers of the Republic of Bulgaria on 29.10.2003, where I am unveiling

missing children are stripped of the opportunity to be sought for and the
rights of victims to trafficking and their parents are totally neglected.
With that open letter I announced my decision to sit a hunger strike in

CHILD LIKE SAVESTIN, WE, BULGARIAN PEOPLE, ARE DOOMED TO NON-DISCOVERY EVEN
BEFORE WE MEET WITH DISASTER.
Stanishev, Pirinski, Parvanov, Kalfin, Petkov, Oresharski,
After you for the consecutive time showed mentally of murderers, ready with silence and inaction to destroy each father and son, I declare herein:
made my final decision to set myself on fire in
I WILL GIVE UP THE ACT OF SELF-IGNITION IF YOU SHOW WISDOM AND POLITICAL FAR-SIGHTEDNESS BY FULFILLING MY THREE FOLLOWING REQUESTS:
1. Urgently fulfill my requests to provide for budgetary funds for the circulation of advertising boxes in the relevant Western countries so that Savestin could at least get a chance of recognition as well as the needed budgetary funds for detective search of the kidnapped child. This is your obligation. I need not beg you all the time at all, put you on trial and you would “mess about” in court as well.
2. You should undertake a definite public commitment to fulfill my requests from the Hunger Strike – Brussels 2004. Over 14 thousand children affixed their signatures under these requests but you continue to keep silence and remain inactive. This is your obligation. I need not beg you.
3. You should undertake an official commitment that you will circulate through the Ministry of Education the anti-risk materials developed by Savestin Foundation without which materials no real prevention is possible. These materials are unique assistance and they are really applicable and invaluable both in search and in criminology in principle. This is your obligation as well. I need not beg you.
GENTLEMEN, YOU HAVE TERM UNTIL 25 AUGUST!
DEAR SIRS THOMAS HAMMARBERG, FRANCO FRATTINI, OLLI REHN, JOSEP BORRELL FONTELLER,
I PETITION YOU HEREIN FOR YOUR ENERGETIC AND PRAGMATIC INTERFERENCE AND NEEDED COOPERATION.

For me each child-victim is Savestin. This is why I will pledge myself if the Government again does not respond in a reasonable manner. I need not beg our Ministers, President and Prime Minister. They should have proposed better solutions in favor of Savestin as well. They should have really implement the rights of the Bulgarian child as international documents prescribe. Alas, they did not do it for 9 years. There is no turning back for me. The opposite would mean to betray my son and give up. I feel ashamed to be alive, so miserable and helpless.
CONFESSION OF A FATHER
By Todor Stanislavov Deyanov
THE EUROPEAN COMMISSIONER BRIDGET CZARNOTA HAS PREVENTED MYSELF PUTTING ON FIRE. SHE SAVED MY LIFE AND MY BODY FROM MUTILATION. In Brussels concrete meetings were already fixed with myself. The first was held immediately after my arrival on 19 September 2006 and the second one – on the birthday of Savestin – 22 September.
IN FACT, PRESIDENT PARVANOV, PRIME MINISTER STANISHEV AND THE CABINET MINISTERS IVAYLO KALFIN, RUMEN PETKOV, PLAMEN ORESHARSKI HAVE DEMONSTARED IN PUBLIC THAT THEY ARE MY POTENTIAL KILLERS. This was actually the fate I was facing on 22 September 2006, should the course of developments depended on the President and the Government. They had decided to demonstrate – through my charring – to the whole nation that no parent could fight over their crime. They have cruelly illustrated that every ordinary Bulgarian in trouble is a wretched nonentity who is not entitled even to think about saving his child. They ostentatiously put the touching killing finish to whatsoever attempt to rescue Savestin. They are guilty to all and any other child. Every normal person can imagine how important is for these people that the child traffcking channels remain untouched.
22 SEPTEMBER 2006 – INSTEAD OF BEING A DAY OF SHOCKING SELF-SACRIFICE, THIS DAY TURNED INTO A POSITIVE MILESTONE FOR MY PARENTSHIP AND FOR MY PUBLIC COMBAT THANKS TO BRIDGET CZARNOTA IN PERSON, AS WELL AS TO THE ASSISTANTS TO COMMISSIONERS OLLI REHN AND FRANCO FRATTINI.
My country has treated me like an enemy for nine years, but the experts of the European Commission have assessed highly my fight as a parent and citizen. Moreover, they suggested that I can cooperate with them on the problems of child and human trafficking. These are the actual things I have achieved during my meetings with Mrs Bridget Czarnota, with experts from the Enlargement Directorate, with human rights, justice and home affairs experts, with representatives of the Search Service in Belgium, with officers of Child Focus. My first meeting was attended, on the Bulgarian side, by the observers to the European Parliament Dimitar Abadzhiev and Maria Kapon, who committed themselves to work for specific legislation moves, they stood by my public activity. This is how the European do and also the people who are truly committed to combat against trafficking:
1. To create a working system for searching missing children through implementing fast amendments in the legislation, including the Ministry of Interior Law, the Penal Procedure Code, the Penal Code and the Child Protection Law, as are my demands within the hunger strike I staged in Brussels in 2004. At the moment Bulgaria lacks no effectively useful and functioning system for searching missing children.
2. Introduction of a Specialized Instruction to Missing Children Searching into the system of the Ministry of Interior, including clear terms and activities that secure complete protection of the internationally recognized rights of the child. Children are a specific and subtle category for searching, which is placed under special protection. Therefore the search of a missing child must be a non-compromise priority of the whole capacity available at the Ministry of Interior. For instance, the special surveillance devices must be used predominantly when searching for a child and also in any case of suspecting home sexual harassment over a child, meaning in all cases of evidence deadlocked crimes. At the moment the situation is nothing like this.
3. To establish a working group at the Ministry of Education and Sciences with the task of coining a national education policy and prevention within the combat against child trafficking. Providing technical assistance for the publication of Anti-Risk Album as developed by the Savestin Foundation and distribution of respective materials in kindergartens and schools across the country. It is necessary to establish immediately in Bulgaria a civil database applicable for recognizing and searching missing children. This shall be a personal identification database kept and maintained within each Bulgarian family, unlike by the police.
4. To create a workable national policy for prevention and counteraction against kidnapping, trading and trafficking of children, whereas for this purpose it is immediately necessary:
a) To establish as soon as possible in Bulgaria a centre maintaining a database for missing children to be placed under civil control. It is a must to distribute all the available photo information about a missing child to key public places across the country and to update on a regular bases its portrait and data as broadcast by television channels and the press media in the whole country. Such an information centre for missing children, alike Child Focus, can be swiftly put in place within the State Agency for Child Protection.
b) To establish, within the Science Research Institute of Crime and Criminology with the Ministry of Interior, a Balkan Computer Centre for Age Progression of Searched Missing Children from countries neighboring Bulgaria as well. Without update portraits the searching is practically impossible. Mrs Bridget Czarnota has committed herself to investigate and to submit to the Bulgarian authorities the respective specialised software and applicable methodology.
c) To create a working mechanism for early warning and real search of Bulgarians missing abroad through the network of Bulgarian Embassies, the national intelligence and counterintelligence services or by hiring detective agencies. The protection of child rights must be respected as utmost value by the state, regardless of the location of the child itself.
d) To create a national fund for material support and financial compensation for the victims of crime.
5. To regulate by law the licensing statute of private detectives in order that the evidence they collect are recognizable in court. It is necessary to make a breakthrough into the monopoly of the Ministry of Interior in the criminal law, the search for missing people and other types of investigation. For the moment being, the citizen is unable to be in charge of these activities and is entirely dependable on the Ministry of Interior.
6. Training of the officers of the Ministry of Interior, the Investigation Service, the Prosecution Office and the Judiciary aimed at better understanding of the needs of the victims and their families in accordance with the international principles of the civilized world, because in many case police officers dare threaten, manipulate or treat with cruel negligence both the victims and their families.
7. To further develop my ideas and suggestions as part of a European Union directive because the problem with child trafficking, which had remained unpopular in such size and forms until some fifteen years ago, now is an all-EU problem. Namely:
a) The solution of the nightmare with child trafficking is not affordable for any separate country, least to the efforts of a single parent. There are perfect conventions on the protection of child rights and against kidnapping, trading and trafficking of children, but there is not an operating international system for effective massive public awareness in case of each missing child searched for abroad, nor an international centre for real international search of children across the globe.
b) Crime is a well-organized phenomenon, but the separate governments are not so well organized, so when it comes to it the suffering parent has no institution to approach for international aid and assistance. It is urgently necessary for Europol to establish a system of real detective search of children across Europe and European media shall regularly publish pictures of missing children, regardless of which part of Europe these children come from.
8. The Savestin Foundation needs financial assistance to organize a consultative and operative office on the issues related to children who became victims of trafficking and also to promote through the operative office the Anti-Risk materials all over the country.
9. Concerning the search of Savestin, Mrs. Bridget Czarnota has committed herself to seek assistance from the respective crime fighting services, including Interpol.
It seems that a man can be as happy as unhappy at the same time. Yes, I was happy from my colossal achievement in Brussels. I was happy that on 22 September 2006, at 12:00 o’clock, when I was supposed to put myself on fire due to the President and the government, the chief executive for enlargement Mrs Bridget Czarnota invited me to a personal dinner. I was also pleased to find out the same morning that the owners and the staff of the Ascot Hotel – who are Romanians, but have known the reason I am in Brussels, and being aware that my fight is beneficial for Romania too – in the early dawn of 22 September handed down to me an enormous bunch of flowers with a flow of greetings that "Savestin makes it home with you soon!" The same evening these completely unknown to me people expected me at the hotel with a birthday cake and 18 lit candles on it, champagne and all the festive stuff to celebrate the full-age of my son. I cried. How humane is the attitude of foreign politicians and citizens and how inhumanely humiliated and ruined me our generals, prime ministers and presidents.
During all those hours I also felt very unhappy, because Savestin is a universe of the unknown, far away from me and I have succeeded in helping him not for all these years. May him forgive me!
I would like to express my gratitude to all the Bulgarians abroad, children, adults and also foreigners who begged me not to commit suicide. In Bulgaria I was officially supported by the National Ombudsman Mr Ginyo Ganev, by the State Agency for Child Protection, by the Chairman of the parliamentary committee on budget and finances. The chief prosecutor invited me to a personal meeting, made excuse on behalf of the prosecution and I am sure that he will do whatever is possible within his powers.
Yes, I was victorious, because I did not let myself to the policemen-generals and all the rest of jerks in power to squash me, despair or depersonalize me. People, you can do it too! Do not be afraid! Do not succumb! A more charming truth than the carefree smiles of our children does not exist in this world!
Do lead a war for each and any smile!
