Child Killer Sues Bulgaria For Treating Him Inhumanely

A man serving a life sentence in prison for the murder of a child sued the Bulgarian state for “inhumane” treatment during his stay in a Pazardzhik prison cell.

Bulgaria treats a cold-blooded killer inhumanely

In 1998, Dimitar Georgiev tortured, strangled, and then drowned his 7-year-old stepdaughter, a crime for which he received the life sentence without the chance of release. That sentence started in 2000. Until 2013, the killer stayed in a high-security solitary confinement in Pazardzhik. Georgiev had one hour for exercise, while the rest of his day was spent in the cell that lacked a toilet or running water.

Those conditions are deemed “inhumane” and the murderer successfully sued the state two times – in 2016, when he received 2000 leva as compensation, and 10,000 leva in 2017. The expenses for the court case will also have to be shared between the state and the child killer. The decision can be repealed in the next 14 days.
