Summary/Abstract: At a meeting of the Commission of Inquiry into the Traycho Kostov case and related cases, conducted in the summer of 1956, Kiril Dramaliev – a member of the CC of BCP and a member of the committee – disagrees with some of the main findings and conclusions in the draft report under discussion. K. Dramaliev insists that Traycho Kostov be rehabilitated not only judicially but also politically, and that Valko Chervenkov be removed from the Politburo of the BCP Central Committee, but at the plenary of the BCP Central Committee on September 7, 1956, Dramaliev withdraws his proposal as “inappropriate”.
