Prof. Milenkov: "Bulgarian Communist Party and abuses in psychiatry"
Veronica Bikova interview

Every psychiatrist, every physician, who has practised in a psychiatric hospital in communist times, can confirm that it was a normal practice to receive two bus loads at a time with 40 passengers each and being told that these people will stay because there is doubt that they might be mentally ill.
