Bulgarian FC President Arrested in Greece over Cigarette Smuggling in UK
The news was spread by Bulgaria's Ambassador in Athens Andrey Karaslavov.
The detention came after the authorities in London issued a European writ of arrest and extradition of the sport boss.
The British police seized a huge cigarette consignment in London about a month ago as it was sent by a company, part of whose shares were owned by the arrestee.
As the police detained Hadzhiivanov in the northern part of Greece, the case is now being handled to the Bulgarian consul in the city of Thessalonike.

"It poisons the whole economy, creates a class of rich nono's, while the rest of the society has to survive with peanuts. "
You forgot to mention that this is heats up inflation and worsen the trade deficit, as there is no production nor value added behind that money. So the poor Bulgarians get hit twice fold, while the "biznes"men order the next black Jeepowe...
The sad thing in this story is that the Bulgarian authorities are totaly absent in this case. The EU arrest order was issued in the UK, the arrest took place in Greece. That man should have stayed in BG, he was safe there.....
Off course they know in Sofia that there is an enourmous black market in cigarettes, creating millions in criminal money, that is laundried through all possibles ways, from real estate, black salaries, through ... sportsclubs! It poisons the whole economy, creates a class of rich nono's, while the rest of the society has to survive with peanuts.
This story makes it also clear how deep these authorities are corrupted. Apparantly the prosecutors where not informed about the EU arrest order! A very easy way to get away with it. But what can you expect, if even the president's election campain is sponsored by this type of creatures. Criminals remain safe in BG. Unfortunatly, this time there were the Greeks....
Ausdiva, your comment is inpolite and stupid; It is of no help to your country, on the countrary.
Clearly you are a mutrachka (it rhimes with prostachka). Next you will be telling me that the mutra has a few university degrees from reputable universities (all paid for, cash and carry). Why are you defending a criminal like that mutra? He is a greedy, dishonest criminal bastard. Piss off with your stupidity.
Dear imsoobored, if you are so bored perhaps you should go and maw some lawns or wash some cars yourselfвЂ¦ As this is clearly what you do for a living. Calling someone a вЂ?dumb f*ckвЂ™ without knowing them is quite ignorant of you, as I have actually met the Koce on a few occasions and can tell you that he is intelligent, well educated, bright and has more personality that you could ever wish for! Another thing, just because people like you canвЂ™t make it in Bulgaria and have chosen to leave, there is no need to be nasty to people who are smart enough and able to make вЂ?decent moneyвЂ™ in Bulgaria! And for your information, not everyone making a decent living in BG is a criminal!
Of course this guy is a mutra, how do you think a dumb f*ck like him can get any "decent money" if not by criminal activity? If he was here in the US, he would be mowing my lawn or washing my car. But it seems in Bulgaria there are endless opportunities for criminals to make "decent money".
