Bulgaria’s Interior Minister Rumyana Bachvarova has arrived at the headquarters of private TV7 channel in Sofia to try to defuse tensions heightened by heavy police presence in the building.
Earlier on Wednesday a bailiff entered the building to seize TV7 equipment citing a court order. Reportedly, the ground for the bailiff’s actions was litigation.
Tens of police officers were deployed in and around the building in the process in a move that sparked accusations of infringement on media freedom from politicians and journalists.
Upon entering the building, Bachvarova told journalists she needed time to study the situation.
