The Sofia City Court rejected Friday the latest request of alleged crime boss Zlatomir Ivanov aka Baretata (the Barret) to be released from jail.   
Ivanov’s Defense Council asked to change his permanent detention to a lighter measure over Baretata’s alleged health problems. According to unofficial information, the motive has been a needed hospital treatment.
