Commenting article: Bulgarian PM Offers Perplexing Explanations in 'Buddha' Case Scandal
Bulgarian Prime Minister, Boyko Borisov, has claimed that the police case for operative surveillance against him was launched because he has been a private bodyguard of Communist Dictator, Todor Zhivkov, and of former Tsar, Simeon Saxe-Coburg.
The site for investigative journalism Bivol.bg published late Monday evening a new document revealing that Borisov has been a target of the police in the 90s of the 20th century.
The document shows that on February 24, 1997, the Central Services for Combatting Organized Crime, CSBOP "Internal Terrorism" Department has launched a case for operative surveillance (DON) against Boyko Metodiev Borisov. The case was listed under the alias "Buddha." He was, allegedly, recruited as informant over his ties with the mafia.
The saying in Bulgarian we have for the case roughly translates as "you don't move when you have your pants soiled".
You just don't make any move then, unless you want it better spread and stinkier.

Maybe I am utterly confused. Can someone explain this to me?
Why would Boyko want to deny that he was an informant in the anti-mafia police? Isn't it a good thing if Boyko was? He would have been helping to stop the corruption and make Bulgaria more transparent. Why is this a bad thing?
