Two Indicted for Spreading False Information on Bulgarian Banks
Sofia Regional Prosecutor's Office has indicted two of the six men detained in the bank rumors affair that has unfolded over the past weeks.
Kiril Dzhabarov (born in 1985, Sofia) and Robert Dimitrov (1974, Czechoslovakia, Bulgarian citizen) have been released with a bail of BGN 3000 (EUR 1500) imposed on each of them, the Bulgarian National Radio reports.
The two men's activity is yet to be clarified by investigators, but it is clear they are to be prosecuted under article 326 (1) of Bulgaria's Criminal Code.
Article 326 says "a person who transmits over the radio, by telephone or in some other way false calls or misleading signals for help, accident or alarm, shall be punished by deprivation of liberty for up to two years."
A probe against those responsible for disseminating misleading information about Bulgarian banks has been under way since Friday, with six people arrested in an operation of the State Agency for National Security (DANS) on Sunday.
So far a total of 19 witnesses have been interrogated, and 30 computers have been seized by police as part of the investigation.
