I am arrested. Can you release me?
Consular officers in the Bulgarian diplomatic missions abroad are not allowed to influence
any local authorities so that they release you from prison / detention.
What they can do is:
− Communicate with your friends or relatives, if you so wish;
− Offer a list of local attorneys who can take your defense;
− Inform the detention authorities about any medical issues that you may have and ask
you to be provided with appropriate treatment or medical care, if necessary;
− Inform you about the specifics and conditions of prisons or other detention facilities or
correctional services in the respective country, as well as the specifics of local legislation.
