Director General


Brussels, May 23

Your excelency,

The commission has received numerous questions from the European Parliament, as well as grievances concerning the Bulgarians governments decision to not register and not recognize the United Macedonian Organization (OMO) Ilinden - PIRIN.
In the Commisions answer it had been stated that this was a case at the European Human Rights Court on January 19, 2006, which considers that the refusal to register OMO Ilinden - PIRIN violates clause 11 of the European Convention of Humand Rights. The commision also reminded Bulgaria that they must resolve this issue.
According to information made available to us, this issue is still not resolved. The Commision would like to be enlightened with the steps that the Bulgarian government is taking to fulfil the demands of the European Human Rights Court.

Regards,
Jonathan Faull
