The Burgas Prosecutor's Office has charged with criminal breach of trust Nikolay Dimitrov, Mayor of top Black Sea resort town of Nessebar.

Dimitrov is alleged to have granted 12 persons construction rights for municipal plots back in 2008 without the consent of the Nessebar Town Council.

Under the Municipal Property Act, a mayor has no such powers, the Prosecutor's Office has reminded.

According to Burgas Info, a local news website, the municipal property in question is a plot of 1 980 square meters located in the Cherno More quarter of the town of Nessebar.

One of the "beneficiaries" of the construction permits is said to Stoyko Stoynov, Secretary of the Nessebar Municipality. A residential building has already been constructed on the plot.

Dimitrov was elected Mayor of Nessebar in 2007 as an independent candidate. Before that he served as a municipal councilor for three terms.
