The demolition of a disco club in the students’ town in Sofia, near which a twenty-year-old man was killed at the end of 2008 year, started on Wednesday.

The news comes more than a year after the judges from Sofia Administrative Court rejected the request of the club's owner, Excellent Company, to cease the ordinance for its closure, issued after the authorities proved the building was registered as a booth and built on municipal land. The Supreme Administrative Court upheld the ruling last month.

Under the ruling the club will be brought down forcefully if it is not demolished by this Thursday, May 20.

Studentski Grad ("Students’ Town") quarter is comprised mostly of student dormitories, where about 50 000 university students from various higher education institutions in Sofia live during the academic year.

Sofia pharmacy college student Stoyan Baltov from Sliven died in December 2008 in front of Amnesia disco club, where he was attacked and severely beaten. Baltov was 20 when he was killed. The attackers are said to have been drinking heavily. They both were of Baltov’s age.
