Right-Hand Man of Siderov Thrashes Opponent

MP Pavel Chernev sends into knockdown activist of an opponent organization

Heavyweight right-hand man of Volen Siderov, leader of the ultra-nationalist Ataka faction in the National Assembly, attacked and beat black and blue a young man, member of an opponent organization, after an interview the latter gave for SKAT TV. Chernev and his two robust accomplices ambushed the victim Tuesday night when he emerged from the TV station.
Activists of the Bulgarian National Union, Ivailo Dachov and Adriana Miteva, have recently split from Ataka. One of the assailants held Dachov tight, while Chernev punched him into belly. Miteva started creaming for help; at that point, though, two more thugs showed up and threatened to rip her open. Approached for comment, Chernev said flat: "It's a pack of lies. The guy was drunk and fell down."
Dachov has obtained a medical confirmation of his condition and filed a complaint against Chernev in the 7th Police Precinct in Sofia.
