Bulgarians with suspended sentences and imposed restrictions will be traced through electronic bracelets.
The pilot project will be first tried for 6 months in the Blagoevgrad Region and later introduced all over the country. It is financed by the EU and and the British Justice Ministry.
At the end of February three individuals from the Blagoevgrad Region sentenced to restricted probation will begin wearing the bracelets, which will emit coded signals to a monitoring device. The convict will be then called by the operator to find out if there is a violation of the restrictive measure such as a house arrest.
