Vassil Bojkov has been detained for 24 hours, said Stoyan Baumeyer at Sofia Airport on Friday. Baumeyer introduced himself as one of the businessman's lawyers. Earlier on Friday, the plane on board of which Vassil Bojkov announced he was going home landed at Sofia Airport.

Stoyan Baumeyer said that Vassil Bojkov was to be examined at the Interior Ministry hospital and then possibly questioned by the prosecution service.

Baumeyer said that Bojkov came back "quite voluntarily and at the earliest opportunity because until August 23 he did not have permission from the authorities in Dubai to leave the country for reasons of his safety".

Regarding Bojkov's motives, Baumeyer said that his main one is to clear his name in court.

Asked whether the murder of Alexey Petrov had opened the way for Vassil Bojkov to Bulgaria, the lawyer said, "I don't think you should put my client in roles, in films that he doesn't even know were cast." According to the lawyer, Vasil Bojkov and Alexey Petrov have nothing in common and their paths have never crossed.

Baumeyer advised the media to follow Bojkov's social media profiles where "there will be more information, step by step, about everything".
