Bulgarian Ex-FinMin May Be Prosecuted over Transfer of Health Money- Report
Lawmakers of the three ruling parties in Bulgaria may launch a prosecution against former Finance Minister Simeon Djankov, as he is suspected in transferring state money envisaged for the health sector for other needs, violating the Bulgarian health insurance law.
Dyankov, a Finance minister during the center-right cabinet of PM Boyko Borisov (2009-2013), could be prosecuted for the transfer of BGN 1.4 B from the National Health Insurance Fund to the fiscal reserve, according to local media.
