Case No. 745/2016 before District Court of Ihtiman, Judgment No. 15 of 01 February 2017

In the case of an unaccompanied child registered as an asylum seeker, the court stated that the Bulgarian legislation is applicable to all children residing in the country and in this sense, since the child was at risk, appropriate protection measures under the Law on Child Protection should be taken. The court took into consideration that currently there is no other option to protect the child and that there is real danger for his life and health because of the absence of parental care and supervision. Therefore, in respect of his right to proper physical, emotional and intellectual development, the court placed the child into the mainstream child protection services.
