In Bulgaria, Run For Parliament - Get Out of Jail Free

In Bulgaria, Mafia members can get out of jail because they have run for parliament. Even though they were not elected, they can remain free.

The Sofia City Prosecutor, Nikolay Kokinov, announced Monday that there was no reason to put Bulgaria’s notorious Galevi brothers back in jail.

In mid-June, alleged crime bosses, Plamen Galev and Angel Hristov aka the “Galevi brothers”, walked out of jail after both were allowed to run for parliamentary seats and thus receiving immunity from prosecution.
