Ethnic Turks, victims of the so-called "Revival process" (system of attempted assimilation of Muslims in Bulgaria in the 70s and 80s of the 20th century), have filed a complaint against the Bulgarian state with the International Criminal Court in the Hague for criminal investigation of genocide. The civic organization named "Federation of Justice – Bulgaria” filed the complaint on behalf of 10 emigration organisations in Turkey. According to the complaint, "since the beginning of the so-called "revival process" of the 50s and especially the 70s and 80s and ongoing, in Bulgaria there is systematic politically and ethnically motivated genocidal state strategy against the more than 1.5 million Bulgarian citizens of Turkish ethnic consciousness and Muslim religion". The complaint includes  evidence of 117 pages of documents issued by the Bulgarian state institutions.
