In a declaration to the Parliament the United Democratic Forces demanded that the contract between the Finance Ministry and the British private company Crown Agents be disclosed and moved to Parliament for ratification. UDF is to refer the matter to the competent state institutions because of breaching the Constitution and the commitment of crime by an official, Muravey Radev, UDF deputy floor reader, said. In an answer to the declaration Vladimir Donchev, deputy floor leader of Simeon II National Movement, said he has read the documents in his capacity of chairman of the parliamentary Security Committee. In his opinion the Classified Information Act gives answer to all questions and shows the contract should create no problems. Finance Minister Milen Velchev and Crown Agents Executive Director David Philips signed on November 29 a three-year contract for the reform in the Bulgarian customs administration. An international team of 37 experts from Crown Agents, who have experience in customs reforms, will help in the reforms of the customs administration during the three years envisaged in the agreement.
