The petitioner claims that there is corruption in Bulgarian courts and that public institutions are not effective. He also claims that debtors are being convicted in closed-door court hearings and are not afforded full legal protections to guarantee a proper right of defence. The petitioner alleges that a special storage room in the Sofia Regional Court contains archives of all private civil cases, including his case. The petitioner is calling on the European institutions to perform a thorough inspection of such storage rooms and the cases of many other Bulgarian citizens whose rights have been violated by the courts and private bailiffs.
