Key facts of the case:

The applicant was proclaimed by the Committee on Access to and Disclosure of the Documents and Announcing Affiliation of Bulgarian Citizens with the State Security Service and the Intelligence Services of the Bulgarian National Army (Комисия за разкриване на документите и за обявяване на принадлежност на български граждани към Държавна сигурност и разузнавателните служби на Българската народна армия) to have served in Bulgaria’s totalitarian-time State Security Services. The applicant brought an action against the committee’s decision. It was consistently held unfounded during the previous trials. The applicant then filed a plea for complementation of the final decision before a 3-justice committee, by which he also requested a preliminary ruling by the European Court of Justice on specific articles of the Charter of Fundamental Rights in the EU.
