Minister of Transport Loses his Son in Accident. Controversy arises.

Whenever a child dies in some sort of accident one of the first things the local or the state's prosecution does is to call the parents for a talk. Four days ago the Bulgarian Minister of Transport lost his child in a horrific accident while riding a snowmobile. However, no information has been released by the prosecution.

For instance, just last week a child was killed by a dog owned by his parents' friend. Both the father and the dog owner were immediately contacted by the prosecution and were asked to give testimony as to what happened. Media outlets are usually the first ones to find out about that. Most of the times the prosecution even announces what law certain irresponsible parents have broken. 

However, this does not seem to be the case for Minister Ivaylo Moskovski. Yes, it is an awful thing to befall your family but political power should not grant you the right to privacy. More and more people are using the social network to comment on the privileged treatment Moskovski has been getting. Of course, another side of the story should be considered. Is it actually okay to make such incidents public knowledge? It is most likely that people in such predicaments are already feeling immense guilt and are faced with the harsh reality of losing a child. The last thing one would need is publicity. And if one can afford not receiving it - it could be justified. 

There is no information about the ongoing investigation and no information if the prosecution has contacted the Minister directly. Moskovski's 4-year-old son died while his family and friends were all riding snowmobiles in the mountains. We at EUScoop are sorry for the family's loss. We hope that the investigation proves the death of the child not to be his parents' fault.
