The group plans to invite the Bulgarian prime minister, members of the Bulgarian government, the prosecutor general, and representatives of other institutions which are involved with the rule of law in Bulgaria. The authorities are expected to present their plans for judicial reforms, ways to make the prosecutor general accountable and legislative changes which will effectively counter corruption.
