Bulgarian businessmen have been calling the National Revenue Agency (NAP) offices to find out if their accounts abroad will be searched for, NAP Executive Director Krasimir Stefanov reported Saturday.

Stefanov said that NAP offices have been receiving 17 calls over the past week from worried businessmen who say they are enquiring about the Agency’s plans on behalf of a friend.

He added that talks in relation to access to Bulgarians’ accounts in Switzerland and Liechtenstein will start at the beginning of March and that it has not yet been decided whether Bulgaria will pay Germany for providing the information for them.

Stefanov stated earlier Saturday that 25 NAP employees have been fired for corruption.

Stop stealing from your fellow Bulgarian and you'll have nothing to worry about. Hope they have problem sleeping at night.

I wish this "probe" was for real.

This agency should examine everyone's financial statements who has a certain "lifestyle". Just follow up on the owners of all the black SUVs you see double parked in front of chalga clubs. You would be amazed how much revenue the government will be raking in.

These "businessmen" don't need to worry. It is only some windowdressing.
