 February,
 2012. To 
the
 knowledge 
of
 the
 Platform,
 COMDOS is
 led 
by
 persons
 who 
served 
the 
totalitarian
 regime.
 This 
is 
in
 violation
 of
 the 
Code 
adopted
 by 
the 
founders 
of
 the
 Platform.

The
 nine‐member
 Committee
 includes 
several 
persons
 who
 actively 
served
 and
 supported 
the 
totalitarian 
Communist 
regime. 
This 
represents 
a 
violation 
of 
the Code 
of
 the
 Platform
 adopted 
by
 the 
20
 founding 
member 
institutions 
and
 organisations 
from

Platform 
of
 European
 Memory 
and
 Conscience
 sent
 a
 letter 
to 
Mr
 Boyko 
Borisov, Prime 
Minister
 of 
Bulgaria,
 asking
 for 
an 
explanation 
how 
the 
Chairman
 of COMDOS could
 have 
signed 
the
 ethics
 Code 
of
 the

given
 the
 fact 
that 
he 
himself 
was
 an officer 
of
 the
 Communist 
regime`s
 Peoples`
Militia
 until
 1989.

Similar
