Sir Stanley Burnton and Sir Stephen Silber visited Sofia in March at the request of the British Ambassador. This was a 3 day scoping trip to ascertain the extent to which the Foundation may be able to assist the Bulgarian judiciary with training and peer to peer support. A very full programme of visits was arranged by the Embassy, including meetings with Mr Panov, the Chair of Supreme Court of Cassation (SCC), representatives of the Criminal, the Commercial and the Civil Divisions of the SCC, the Union of Judges in Bulgaria, representatives of National Institute of Justice, representatives of the Supreme Judicial Council (SJC) and several NGOs. The Foundation hopes this will be the start of longer term co-operation with the Bulgarian judiciary.
