Commenting article: Plovdiv Bishop Sells Infamous Rolex to Pay Church's Electricity

Controversial Bulgarian Metropolitan Nikolay is selling his notorious Rolex watch to pay the electric bill of the Saint Marina church in his bishopric, the second largest city of Plovdiv.

The official site of the bishopric informs that the electric bill of the temple for the month of January amounts to the staggering BNG 2 940, making it impossible to be paid on the due day, which is today, Tuesday, February 26. For this reason, the Metropolitan has donated his expensive watch to the church's Board of Trustees to sell it and use the money to pay the bill.

In case the sum received through the sale ends up being higher than the bill, the difference will be given for charity.
