Bulgaria's Ambassador to Brazil Chavdar Nikolov (R) will have his mandate terminated earlier.
Bulgaria's Foreign Ministry will terminate the mission of its Ambassador to Brazil Chavdar Nikolov over the case with Olympic weightlifting champion Galabin Boevski.
Ambassador Nikolov was urgently summoned back to Bulgaria on October 25, for explanations about the release of Boevski from a Brazilian jail, where he was serving a 9 year and 4 month sentence for drug trafficking.
The Ambassador will be recalled to Bulgaria for breach of duties and undermining the prestige of the diplomatic services.
According to the Foreign Ministry, Ambassador Nikolov had failed to notify them in time for the release of Boevski, as well as the motives behind it. There had also been a lack of communication on the issue between the Embassy in Brazil and the Foreign Ministry.
The former weightlifter, who was detained in Sao Paulo in 2011, was returned to Bulgaria 2 weeks ago, without any official details being released.
