Jock Palfreeman in court

Paul “Jock” Palfreeman, the Australian accused of the murder of Andrey Monov and the attempted murder of Antoan Zahariev on the night of December 28, 2007, faced court for the first time today in Sofia, Bulgaria, having previously been denied bail. Palfreeman is pleading not guilty to both charges. If found guilty, Palfreeman could be sentenced to between 10 and 20 years in jail or life imprisonment with or without the possibility of commuted sentence. Palfreeman could also be ordered to pay compensation to Monov’s family if found guilty.

On a somewhat odd note, another report in the Bulgarian media (Online blog and website keep Joе Paul Freeman in countenance, FOCUS Information Agency, May 21, 2008) states that “Meanwhile there is online blog in the support of Joе Paul Freeman which is focused on the unfairly Bulgarian justice due to the fact that Andrei’s father is prominent psychotherapist. There is also online website in memory of Andei.” The former is presumably either a reference to this blog or to one of two Facebook sites maintained by Jock’s friends in Australia: JOCK PALFREEMAN IS NOT GUILTY and Comrade Jock Palfreeman: a group for those who support and love the man!.
