Dismissal looms for BNT DG Konstantin Kamenarov

By Chris Dziadul

Konstantin Kamenarov, the DG of the Bulgarian public broadcaster BNT, is expected to vacate his post this week.

According to Capital, this follows the Sofia District Court finally finding him guilty of drunk driving.

An imprisonment of one year and three months is absolute grounds for dismissal by the Electronic Media Council (CEM).

As previously reported by Broadband TV News, Kamenarov’s trial was previously postponed on a number of occasions and his mandate was due to officially end this summer.

He committed the offence on June 23, 2016.

New delay for Konstantin Kamenarov trial

By Chris Dziadul

The trial of Konstantin Kamenarov, the DG of the Bulgarian public broadcaster BTN, has been postponed for the seventh time.

Capital reports that he is accused of drunk driving and the reason for the latest delay is the illness of one of the three judges on the panel.

It adds that in criminal proceedings it is inadmissible to change the judicial panel once the case has begun.

The case against Kamenarov began to be heard around a year ago and the previous postponements have been due actions undertaken by his defence. The next hearing is now expected to take place of March 25.

Kamenarov risks losing his job as the Radio and Television Act clearly states the imposition of a prison sentence, whether conditional or actual, are incompatible with holding the post of the DG of BNT or its radio counterpart.

Some believe that the delays are being implemented in order to run down the clock to this summer, when Kamenarov’s mandate will officially end.
