A Bulgarian prosecutor from the northeastern town of Shumen, who was busted with a bribe, will be kept under house arrest, the Sofia City Court ruled Monday night. Rumen Penev from the Regional Prosecutor's Office in Shumen was arrested with a bribe on January 13, 2011. In its house arrest ruling, the Sofia City Court accepted that there is a "reasonable suspicion" that Penev committed the crime that he is accused of. The prosecution has found that Penev demanded a BGN 25 000 bribe, and received BGN 21 000 in order to help terminate an investigation carried out by one of his colleagues, Prosecutor Yanko Zhelezov in Shumen, against a local attorney, Nayden Nikolov.
