Bulgaria’s former Defense Minister, Nikolay Tsonev, and his two accomplices, including an acting judge, will remain jailed over an attempt to bribe an investigator.
After a four-hour hearing on Sunday, the Sofia City Court ruled to keep behind bars Tsonev, financial consultant Tencho Popov, and Petar Santirov (who is actually a judge of the same court) claiming that if released on bail the three men could escape or destroy evidence.
The three men were busted on Thursday over an attempt to bribe a Sofia investigator named Petyo Petrov in order to obstruct the Tsonev’s trail for abuses he allegedly committed during his term as Defense Minister in 2008-2009....
"Ex Finance Minister Nikolay Tsonev was arrested in the Military Hospital as he was being given a document certifying sickness so that he can skip an interrogation scheduled for next Tuesday."
