Bulgarian Customs Boss Axed 1 Month after Being Appointed
Rumen Danev Deputy Director of Bulgaria's Customs Agency has been fired just one month after being appointed at the post.
The information has been confirmed before reporters in the Parliament by Prime Minister, Plamen Oresharski.
The latter advised the journalists to approach Danev's boss at the Customs for more details, but admitted he received "some unpleasant information about this man."
The Customs Agency has confirmed for the site OFFNews that Danev is no longer Deputy Director, despite the fact that their official site still listed his name Wednesday afternoon, but claimed he has left on his own wish, and had not been fired.
Danev was appointed by Bulgaria's Minister of Finance, Petar Chobanov, to the post on January 9, 2013. He was in charge of the Customs' "Intelligence and Investigation" and "Follow-up Control" sectors.
The former Customs Deputy Head was born in 1958 in the northeastern city of Shumen. He has a Master's Degree in Law. His professional career began in the judiciary when he was appointed to the position of judge-legal officer at the District Court in the town of Kostinbrod. After that he worked as legal advisor for various enterprises.
Danev's professional experience in the Customs Agency began in 1995, when he was appointed expert in its "Litigation" Directorate, which he later headed. From 2000 to 2009, he was Director of the "Intelligence and Investigation" Directorate. After leaving the Customs administration, Danev has held various legal positions.
