German Prosecutor's Office Еxamines the Possibilities for Extradition of the Suspect in Victoria's Murder

German police arrested a man in connection with the rape and murder of Victoria Marinova, the German authorities have confirmed. According to media reports, the mother of the detainee lives in Stade, Germany. The man is going to be extradited to Bulgaria based on a European Arrest Warrant.

It was earlier reported that German police have detained the suspect whom they identified as Severin Krasimirov at the request of the Bulgarian authorities. On Tuesday evening, 21-year-old Severin was traced and detained by special forces, General Prosecutor at Celle and the State Criminal Investigation Service in Hanover.

The General Prosecutor's Office in Celle is currently examining the conditions for extradition and the continuation of further proceedings. The Anti-Fraud Office OLAF is currently assessing information from Bulgaria.

According to Bulgarian Interior Minister Mladen Marinov, the man from the city of Russe is known to the police. In the city, the corpse of Victoria Marinova was discovered on Saturday in a park near Danube river where the woman was jogging. The Bulgarian authorities accuse the man who is now arrested in Stade of rape and premeditated murder. It is assumed that it was a spontaneous attack for sexual reasons, said Prosecutor General Sotir Tsatsarov.

Spiegel wrote that the case has already become a political issue in Bulgaria. "The public indignation over the murder and critical reactions from abroad, the bourgeois-nationalist government in Sofia is under pressure to enlighten the crime quickly".
