EP Urged to Probe Bulgarian PM's Alleged Murky Past
The founder of Bulgarian whistleblowing website Bivol.bg have addressed a petition to the European Parliament to draw its attention to Bulgarian Prime Minister Boyko Borisov's alleged murky past.
Bivol recently released a document revealing that Borisov was recruited in the past as a secret agent of the Central Services for Combatting Organized Crime, CSBOP.
Borisov was allegedly recruited as informant over his close ties with the mafia. A 1997 file, which refers to Borisov under the codename "Buddha," notes his "criminal orientation" and suggests "clarifying connections of the subject with people and businesses linked to criminal activities."
Bivol co-founders Assen Yordanov and Atanas Tchobanov, as well as Petar Penchev, member, of the Public Council of the Association for Free Speech "Anna Politkovskaya," have now written to the Petitions Committee at the European Parliament requesting a "public hearing on facts and circumstances exposing Bulgarian Prime Minister, Boyko Borisov, of connections with organized crime and participation in money laundering schemes."
The whistleblowing journalists have stated that reliable evidence links Borisov with an organized criminal group for illegal drug trafficking, suspicious fuel deals and money laundering.
Yordanov, Tchobanov and Penchev have cited secret diplomatic cables published by WikiLeaks and testimonial evidence.
The whole petition, including the listed data and evidence, can be read at http://www.bivol.bg/media/Borisovgate-PETI-EN-anon.pdf

This is a sick joke.
A similar petition could be written for lots, if not all, of the high ranking senior politicians within the EU.
If you've got a problem with Uncle B, then just vote on another politician at the forthcoming elections. That's the strength of democracy. You can show non grata politicians the door.
And yes, there might be politicians white as snow in Bulgaria. But according to my knowledge, eventual snow will be in and under their noses. So, it will be one step forward and two steps back. And, if the commies come to the table again, it will be the end of Bulgaria as a free nation.
Just my two stotinki
