The Bulgarian Member of Parliament Atanas Atanasov from the rightist Democrats for Strong Bulgaria party said Saturday that the Kameliya Boncheva, the wife of the President of FC Litex Angel Bonchev, was kidnapped during a failed operation of the police.

Atanasov, who is former head of Bulgaria's counterintelligence service, announced that Boncheva had gone to meet with her husband's kidnappers.

This was coordinated with the police, who were supposed to capture the perpetrators during the meeting.

"Who is going to pay for the pain and suffering of this woman because she did not go to the meeting at her initiative? It is extremely scandalous that the Interior Ministry has been working for two months on this case," Atanasov declared adding:

"When they figured out they couldn't manage it, why didn't they seek help from the USA and the UK, who have very good experts? Instead, they proceeded like amateurs, and the kidnappers got Bonchev's wife in front of their eyes."

The MP claims his information was from reliable Interior Ministry sources. He also announced that the last few years there had been a double-digit number of abductions in Bulgaria combined with a zero efficiency of the police.

Atanasov pointed out that kidnapping was turning into a very profitable activity.

Bulgaria's Interior Minister Mihail Mikov declined to comment on Atanasov's statements. In his words the opposition MP was using the case for political purposes.
