37,000 leva Fine For Levski Due to Swastika Scandal

The Bulgarian football club “Levski” was fined with 37,000 leva after a scandal. During the Bulgarian Cup finals between Levski and Slavia, two children with scribbled signs and symbols were photographed. One of the children has a swastika drawn on its chest, which sparked the controversy.

The Bulgarian Football Union decided to fine Levski 37,000 leva for “actions or inactions that with which the dignity of a person or a group is insulted based on race, sex, or skin color.” BFU also called for the government institutions to get involved in the case and punish those responsible.

Despite the outcry, the child’s father was not disturbed by the drawings on his son’s chest, but by the large media attention given on the case. The shirtless kid was plastered all over Bulgarian media, and not all of the photographs were actually censored to protect its identity.
