NOTICE BY BISOFT LTD. REGARDING THE STATEMENT MADE BY THE NATIONAL LEGAL AID BUREAU (NLAB) OF 24.11.2014, PUBLISHED ON THE NLAB WEBSITE AT 12:49 P.M. ON 24.11.2014.

Honorable public defenders, 

BiSoft Ltd. hereby expresses its full disagreement with the NLAB statement published on the NLAB website at 12:49 P.M. on 24.11.2014.

BiSoft Ltd. contests the NLAB claims expressed in that statement as false.

BiSoft Ltd. is the developer, author and owner of the Legal Aid Software System (LASS), and the person providing the system software support, and in exercising its rights to protect LASS from illegal and factual actions and omissions it presented the General Terms and Conditions of LASS (GTC of LASS) on 17.10.2014.

The GTC of LASS are integrated and implemented in the system itself. They are technological and functional enhancement of the system, which aim at prevention, protection and security of the LASS, NLAB (GRATUITOUS USER), and BISOFT Ltd. (OWNER-DEVELOPER-AUTHOR). They are consistent with the law and the contract, and with the imperative and mandatory provisions of the national and international law, and do not constitute an amendment of the arrangements between NLAB and BiSoft Ltd., nor are they a proposal for the amendment of these agreements. They represent integrity and implementation of the basic and compiled source code of the LASS and are developed by the owner-author-developer.

Therefore, the GTC of LASS do not constitute new unfair provisions, nor are they ultimate, limiting, modifying, unacceptable or contrary to any provisions and practices, but they are deliberately and seemingly qualified as such by the NLAB and its chairman, Mrs. Cherneva-Markova.

THE GTC OF LASS ARE UNACCEPTABLE ONLY FOR THOSE WHO WANT TO ADMINISTER LEGALLY AND FACTUALLY THE PROGRAM FILES OF THE LASS SOURCE CODE UNLAWFULLY AND TO VIOLATE THE RIGHTS OF BISOFT LTD, AND FOR THOSE WHO CONDUCT NO REAL LEGAL PRACTICE OR ARE DISHONEST AND PURSUE HIDDEN AGENDAS.

The NLAB and its employees deny confirming the GTC of LASS ON PURPOSE, under order of the chairman of the NLAB, Mrs. Cherneva-Markova, and refuse to work with the LASS despite their own internal controversial Resolution No 132/10.28.2014 issued by the NLAB.

THE NLAB GAVE A FALSE IMPRESSION OF DIFFICULTIES WHILE MRS. CHERNEVA-MARKOVA TRIED TO CONVINCE THE SUPREME BAR COUNCIL TO DEVELOP ITS OWN SOFTWARE SYSTEM ON 17.10.2014. MEANWHILE THE NLAB ALLOWED A THIRD PARTY ACCESS TO LASS IN ORDER TO COPY IT AND USE IT ILLEGALLY.

In order to resolve the situation, BiSoft Ltd. notified the relevant competent authorities and requested their assistance.

Sincerely: /signature/ engineer Dimitar Andreev
