A blaze has destroyed to ashes the office of populist party "Bulgaria without Censorship" in the southern city of Stara Zagora, the party's press center said Sunday.

The office was opened a only few days ago, personally by party leader and controversial former TV host, Nikolay Barekov.

The party reported that the fire flared at 2 am and burned down the entire building, located in the city's central park.

A firefighter team was immediately sent to the scene, but they were unable to rescue the office. The causes of fire are being probed.

Barekov said that provocations started before Christmas from detractors who tried to stir a debate about the location of the office, claiming that it was an obstacle for people wishing to use the park.

"Bulgaria without censorship" thinks the police and the fire departments failed to do an adequate job and with their inaction have allowed the office in Stara Zagora to burn to the ground.

Moreover, without an expert report and without surveying security cameras around, they were quick to issue a statement that this was not case of arson," Barekov writes in his blog.

In September 2013, Barekov officially quit TV7 and its sister channels, and announced an upcoming political career, suggesting his ambitions reach very high, including the positions of Bulgarian PM or President.

Lol, serves him right. Suck it up princess. Perhaps you can go back to your old job and do a full investigative report on this terrible "accidental" fire.

Barekov was one of the main instigators and cause of the dreadful outcome of the elections last year, when his expose on votebuying was aired on TV during the blackout of political campaigning.
