Bulgarian PM: Govt Not to Blame for Disappeared Mobsters.

Bulgaria's government is not responsible whatsoever for the two mobsters who vanished after receiving their sentences, the country's Prime Minister Boyko Borisov has stated.

Angel Hristov and Plamen Galev aka the "Galevi brothers" disappeared after the Bulgarian Supreme Court of Cassation finally confirmed their organized crime sentences last week, and the two were supposed to be sent to jail for 5 and 4 years respectively.

"Judges could have detained them, the prosecutor could have demanded their detention," Borisov said on Thursday, adding that the state cannot interfere with the work of the independent judicial system.

Upon asked whether the mobster pair is ridiculing the government, the Prime Minister became irritated and called the reporter "incompetent," the BGNES news agency reports.

Earlier on Thursday, Bulgaria's Chief Prosecutor Boris Velchev has expressed his certainty that the notorious mobster pair will be found and apprehended.

Galev is to serve 5 years behind bars while Hristov will be in jail for 4 years, both on charges of participating in an organized crime group dealing with racket and extortion.
