Junior Judge Sacked for Embezzlement

Denitsa Ouroumova, the daughter of Supreme Administrative Court judge Nikolai Uroumov, held a junior judge position in the Blagoevgrad District Court until she was fired, mediapool.bg reported today. While Ms. Ouroumova is the first magistrate to lose their job over the real estate scandal in Primorsko, a resort town on the Black Sea, she is by no means the only casualty of the affair.

Ms. Ouroumova allegedly misrepresented her financial status, as the beachfront property had been allotted to the poor. Those who were illegally given permission to build on the property, as building on property requires that one be a registered resident of the city for 5 years – and none were, are not the only ones under investion: the public officials that issues the illegal permits are also being investigated.
