Bulgarian PM Boyko Borisov is to meet with relatives of the Bulgarian sailors that were detained last week in Spain after a ship carrying 3 tons of cocaine was captured last week.
The meeting is on the request of the family members, Bulgarian media have clarified.
The worried families want the Bulgarian government to provide legal aid to the detained sailors.
Last week, Spanish authorities nabbed 31 people, including 21 Bulgarians, after seizing 3 tons of cocaine brought from South America on a ship caught off the southern coast.
Bulgaria's Specialized Criminal Court released late on Monday two suspects allegedly involved in the immense cocaine shipment.
The suspects are Doychin Doychev, owner of the Burgas-based Seaborne Trade company and the SV Nikolay ship, and Ruslan Kolev, the man who recruited the ship's sailors.
