"Foundations from Arab and other Muslim states have been funding radical Islamist activities in Bulgaria for many years."
Which foundations, when, where, how much money?
There is not a single piece of evidence, not a single affirmation by DANS or CIA or Interpol or anyone else of the existence of credible evidence backing such statements so it is kind of strange that this article is named report - it is just putting another gossip talk on the site.
Yane Yanev has previously said that Simeon was a KGB agent but could not offer a single document to prove this allegation. What is sure is that Simeon was investigated by our DS as a suspect and was never a DS agent.
Now he speaks of a major fundamentalist conspiration without ever setting his foot in the villages he talks about. The proofs look again meager - a couple of magazines and a couple of rumors.
I dont think Yanev is a credible source - one has to check but there is a real possibility that all this is a pre-election balooney inflated by our media.
"The GERB leader jokingly asked ... to display in their offices his portrait as a reminder of the person"
This is a great idea and to remind even better for the exploits of the great man one can write below the portrait "The Lord of the Bins".
after all, Sofia is maybe the only EU capital which streets resemble the channels in Venice when it is raining and came close to a pest breakout after the 13th installment of the Sofia garbage crisis.
Lets bet - I bet 20 euros that Passy is out of competition.
"If the rule on restaurants and bars is ever enforced, it will kill the centre of Sofia"
thats right. the sofia "booming economy" and "low unemployment" comes 25% from bars and restaurants - bosses pay rent to the owners so the latter have a higher income, bartenders, waitresses, cooks are an important percentage of the working people in sofia, the companies that supply the bars and the restaurants and employ people will lose a lot too.
When you cut 20% of the time where they make the most of their money during the evening, there will be less money to pay rent, taxes, to hire people etc.
I wonder why these guys from city councils, parliament etc are so obsessed to introduce stupid and useless laws but dont have any answer.
and this is partly because the westerners have just started to understand how deep the old commies and their secret services have infiltrated the eastern european countries business and governing bodies.
After this news: "The new chief of the Hungarian secret services, who spent six years at the K.G.B.вЂ™s academy in Moscow during the 1980s, in January became the chairman of NATOвЂ™s intelligence committee, a rotating post that is held for a year."
I think Passy has no chance at all, given that his father was a prominent commie and he himself is linked to BG "businessmen" close to the commie government like Krumov.
"Bulgaria's Solomon Passy has as many chances to become the new NATO Secretary General as any of the other candidates, the Alliance's spokesperson, James Appathurai, said Friday."
Translation from dyplomatic language - "Your guy has no chance whatsoever and I dont understand why he put his candidature in a first place."
EquestвЂ™s headquarters in London requested a report on the balance, revenues and expenses of all company branches outside England. It turned out that huge investments in Bulgaria are unaccounted for. A large sum disappeared in phantom projects. This reflected on the fundвЂ™s shares, which are listed on London Stock Exchange. Sources say that Krumov has been worried lately. The versions range from unfeasible investments to family problems.
Equest is registered on the Alternative Investment Market of LSE under less strict requirements. The company is registered in offshore zones вЂ“ Mann Island and the British Virgin Islands. The names of the shareholders are confidential, although Krumov has always assured that the source of the hundreds of millions invested in Bulgaria is perfectly clear.
Ex-foreign minister Solomon Passy and failed candidate-mayor of Sofia Martin Zaimov are close to Equest and Krumov. Zaimov and his brother Mikhail are associates in several joint ventures with Krumov. Supposedly Krumov is also connected to PM Stanishev. Equest made headlines recently after purchasing the three companies, responsible for sanitation of Sofia. Ever since the triple coalition came to power Krumov has won every single tender, sources inform
Its the fault of the sofia municipality in a first place to appoint novera so they have to clean up their own sh!t - I guess it was again someones interests that brought these guys.
novera is owned by equest, a small UK investment firm in the real estate business that never ever had worked in waste management.
The total price of the returned items from italy is estimated at 77 000 leva, less than 40 000 euros.
In the case of the Byzantine plates, the greeks payd 2 million euros and the Greeks will be very reluctant to return the plates to Bulgaria.
Basically many countries including Greece make claims to other countries all the time to return such historical objects but I guess if it is something really important and expensive the countries in possession will try everything to keep them.
