Summary/Abstract: The current research is dedicated to the complicated, contradictory and sometimes sharply conflicting relations between the legal activists from the political circle in Istanbul and the revolutionaries on the eve of and during the trial in Sofia, organized after the robbery in Arabakonak passage and the capture of Vasil Levski in the village of Kakrina. Special attention is paid to the interpenetration of ideas and practices between the two seemingly totally incompatible and hostile political trends in the Bulgarian society. Special emphasis is placed in the study on the personality and activities of Hadzhi Ivancho Penchovich, who at that time was a rigorous judge of the revolutionary movement, but at the same time an ardent advocate for the consolidation and development of Bulgarian Exarchate; for the cultural and educational progress of the Bulgarians, carried out in accordance with the law and along with deepening integration of the Bulgarians into the structures of the Ottoman Empire.
