Commenting article: Bulgarian Parliament Refuses to Discuss PM's Alleged Murky Past

The Bulgarian Parliament expectedly refused to create an ad-hoc committee of inquiry that would discuss Prime Minister Boyko Borisov's alleged past as a secret informant for the country's anti-mafia unit back in the 1990s.

The proposal for the establishment of an ad-hoc committee on Borisov's alleged mafia past was made by the left-wing Bulgarian Socialist Party and was backed by other oppositional formations. However, it was rejected by the ruling centrist-right GERB, which has a majority in Parliament.

A leaked document, recently released by the site for investigative journalism Bivol.bg revealed that current Prime Minister, Boyko Borisov, has been recruited in the past as a secret agent of the Central Services for Combatting Organized Crime, CSBOP. Borisov's codename was Buddha.

I dont seem to recall a similar demand by the Bulgarian Socialist Party to establish a commitee to investigate President Parvanov when he was exposed as a Commie spy - I wonder why?

O sancta simplicitas! Indeed so many independent sources revealed Bojko the Pumpkin as a person involved in criminal activity. Pyrvanov was just a State Security informator. However, Borisov was a Communist Party member until 1995 together with Pyrvanov and Stanishev.

Yes, there is a huge difference between being a high level informant and being a lowlife criminal who "accidentally" rose to the "top". For an ever shorter while.

"Yes, there is a huge difference between being a high level informant and being a lowlife criminal who "accidentally" rose to the "top". For an ever shorter while."

I think you will find that Parvanov was President for 10 years - hardly a "shorter while"
