Bulgaria: EVN To Sue Bulgaria For EUR 1 B File photo

The electricity distributing company EVN has hired an international lawyer and plans to sue Bulgaria for EUR 1 B if its business is nationalized. 

According to reports in the Austrian daily Kurier, quoted by Bulgaria's daily 24 Chasa, the company has paid EUR 270 M for its license and has invested more than EUR 600 M. 

According to reports in other Bulgarian-language dailies, last week Bulgaria's President Rosen Plevneliev had a meeting in Vienna with EVN's chairman of the board Stefan Siskovic.

Meanwhile, EVN Bulgaria said they would seek from the National Electricity Company (NEK) EUR 250 M  and reminded that there is already a court case against Bulgaria for breach of contract with Austrian for encouraging investments.

Loyalty? You must be kidding - show me one Bulgarian company that is "loyal" to its costumers.

This is what you get when you sell off public utilities cheaply to foreigners who feel no loyalty to the local population
