Stoyan Tonev, the former head of the Military Medical Academy in Sofia, has been indicted for the second time in half a year, prosecutors say.

According to the Military District Prosecutor's Office, Tonev allegedly inflicted BGN 16.33 M in damage on the hospital through five deals the institution contracted during his term in office.

He is thought to have concluded deals seen as unfavourable to the Military Medical Academy with companies of which one of his subordinates was the owner. The hospital then allegedly caried out part of the activities the company had been assigned to do, with the money flowing into Tonev's account.

Tonev reached five deals with Astra AD medical lab between 2003 and 2013, at the time he was in office.

In may, he was slapped with charges of deliberate mismanagement of BGN 6.5 of the academy's budget.
