The court has not received any pardoning requests from any defendant, said Criminal Court president Ivan Dzolev at a briefing with journalists on Thursday.

Dzolev, regarding the media coverage of possible pardoning by the president, said that it is not good for the court to give its opinion on something in advance.

The president has the right to grant pardons, and that is a fact. If a pardon is granted, the court will comment and assess it, said Dzolev.
