Bulgaria agrees with Libya on fund for compensate AIDS children
Libya-Bulgaria, Politics, 12/24/2005
The Bulgarian government has announced reaching an agreement with Libya to establish a special fund for helping the families of the AIDS infected Libyan children, in what seems to be an introduction for a comprehensive settlement for the five Bulgarian nurses and the Palestinian doctor case, who are sentenced to death in a case where they are accused of infecting these children with AIDS.
A statement by the Bulgarian foreign ministry said that this fund was established with the support of the European Commission, the USA and Britain. The idea of establishing the fund was among proposals by the European Union in order to grant pardon to the five nurses, and this fund is to be financed by the governments of Sofia and Tripoli and Libyan charity foundations including al-Qathafi charity foundation in order to pay compensations for the families of the victim children.
The announcement for the agreement came at a time when the Bulgarian President Georgi Barbov announced that his government will pay what he described the heavy price for the release of the nurses but did not specify the nature nor the value of this price. He said in press statements that he finds a light at the end of the tunnel. He expressed his hope that this will be the last Christmas the Bulgarian nurses to spend in their prison in Tripoli.
