Jeleva Invites MEPs: Come to Bulgaria, Meet My Husband
Bulgaria's EU Commissioner-Designate Rumiana Jeleva has invited certain MEPs to visit Bulgaria with her in order to examine the allegations she was involved in conflict of interests.
Jeleva's remark was directed at Dutch MEP J. Sargentini who said the Bulgarian EU Commissioner-Designate did not answer satisfactorily the conflict of interests claims, and that Jeleva should have been better prepared to handle such questions.
She asked Jeleva explicitly if she was the owner of the "Global Consult" firm which, according to Bulgarian MEP Antoniya Parvanova, she managed in 2006-2009 while she was also an MEP.
"What is happening is a very strange way of providing transparency," MEP Sargentini stated.
"I am not an owner of "Global Consult". I don’t know where you got this information from. But I am asking you once again - I am inviting you to come with me to Bulgaria to see the Bulgarian registers. I will help you. The register is in Burgas. I am not an owner," Jeleva declared, urging once again the MEPs to ask her questions about her portfolio.
Earlier, the Bulgarian nominee invited all MEPs to visit Bulgaria and her city, Sofia, to meet with her family and her husband and see for themselves that they are not involved in anything wrong, upon which she offered to end the discussion about her conflict of interests.
