HANDOUT/REUTERS An unidentified man (R) attacks Ahmed Dogan, leader of Bulgaria’s Movement for Rights and Freedom (MRF) party, as he delivers his speech during his party’s annual conference at the National Palace of Culture in Sofia.

SOFIA—Bulgaria’s ethnic Turkish party, whose leader escaped unhurt when a man pointed a gun to his head on stage at a party congress, said on Sunday it wanted police to investigate who was the “political mastermind” behind the attack.

The Movement for Rights and Freedoms (MRF) accused the police and security services of failing to protect Ahmed Dogan from the man who tried on Saturday to shoot him twice before being wrestled to the ground by security guards.

“The main goal of the investigation would be to focus on finding out who was the political mastermind of this attack,” said Lyutvi Mestan, who replaced Dogan as MRF party leader as previously expected on Saturday.

“The authorities are working on the lead that this was an individual action of a criminal … this is a huge stain on Bulgaria’s image,” he told a news conference.

The party called for an international investigation into the assault by the 25-year-old man, who police identified as Oktay Enimehmedov, an ethnic Turk from the Black Sea town of Burgas.

Police said the gun used during the attack was a non-lethal gas pistol and deputy chief prosecutor Borislav Sarafov told reporters Enimehmedov faces up to five years in prison for hooliganism and up to six years for making a death threat.

    If it was not a lethal weapon why was it chosen?

  2. I’ve read other reports that this was a “suicide by cop” attempt.

  3. Richard says:

    A poor one after it didn’t fire the fire the cops weren’t going to shoot.

    I think the whole thing looked very staged…
