Who killed Metodi Marinov?

That's the question Bulgaria e nasha asks in a post today.

 On the blog two conflicting versions of Metodi's death the night between 14th and 15th of January are stated.

  1. Metodi came to the police station by free will. there he confessed to stealing a car together with two more men. He was taken to custody. There hw took his life. The night shift guard visited him after hearing a loud sound, but it was too late to save his life.This version is the official, delivered by the police authorities.
  2. Metodi was arrested in connection with the protests in central Sofia 14th of January. he said that he didn't feel well and suffered from cardiac problems, but was denied medical help.This version allegedly come from eye witnesses, and was forwarded at a special conference aranged by the opposition party DSB. the police admitt that Metodi declared his health problems, but say thathe refused help.

Unlike their Bulgarian collegues, Swedish policemen have been caught on tape calling immigrant potential rioters monkeys, and say that they're going to beat them so that they vcan't stand straight.

Police misuse of force like this is of course a disgraceto democracy.
