Senior Officials Wiretaps Leak in Bulgarian Media Again, 'Watergate' Gains Speed
Several media offices have received anonymously Friday morning a fresh batch of scandalous special surveillance devices recordings, involving top politicians and magistrates.
The first released audio file includes a conversation between former Prime Minister, Boyko Borisov, former Agriculture Minister, Miroslav Naydenov, and Sofia City Prosecutor, Nikolay Kokinov. It is filled with profanities, curses, vulgarities, and insults of prosecutors, politicians, and journalists, including ridicule of some of them over appearing to be homosexual.
The most insults are directed at Chief Prosecutor, Sotir Tsatsarov, with Kokinov blaming Borisov of handpicking him as it turned out he was not acting as expected.
The talk basically revolves around corruption charges pressed against Naydenov and Kokinov being in hot water over breaches he had committed, and ways for both to get out of them.
The audio files have been sent from the following email address email@example.com.
In the message, the anonymous sender has written that he is a current employee of the police's special technical directorate, SDOTO, dealing with special surveillance devices and was a witness how former Interior Minister, Tsvetan Tsvetanov, has been ordering him and his colleagues to illegally wiretap a huge number of people.
"Why am I writing this? Because today, April 25th, Borisov told Bulgarian people that Tsvetanov had sworn before him on his own children that he would never wiretap him. Well, it is definitely not true!"
One Bulgarian media - the site Afera.bg has received 15 such audio files.
