January 10 (SeeNews) - Bulgaria's minister of environment and water Neno Dimov has resigned, the government said on Friday.
Prime minister Boyko Borissov has accepted Dimov's resignation, the government said in a press release.
It did not provide further details.
Dimov was detained in police custody on Thursday in relation to investigations into the reasons for a severe shortage of drinking water in the town of Pernik and suspected unlawful imports of waste into the country and its storage.
Pernik, located some 30 km south of Sofia, is gripped by a severe water crisis due to dry weather in 2019 and the outdated water supply infrastructure in the region. The poor condition of the water supply network in Pernik municipality, which has not been rehabilitated for more than 50 years, is to blame for up to 76% of water losses on the territory of the municipality.
