Commenting article: Bulgarian Anti-mafia Unit: Kingpin's Daughter Abducted for His Silence

Sources from Bulgaria's Main Directorate for Combatting Organized Crime, GDBOP, have confirmed off-the-record that the recent kidnapping of the daughter of alleged Bulgarian drug lord Evelin Banev AKA Brendo was done to keep him tight-lipped in Court.

The sources, cited by the Bulgarian Standard daily, say the abduction aimed at alerting Brendo the girl will be safe until he maintains silence and does not reveal the names of kingpins higher-up than him from Colombian and Italian drug cartels. They have noted this was the main lead of the Italian investigation as well.

At the beginning of March, 10-year-old Lara, daughter of Bulgarian "cocaine king" Evelin Banev, was abducted by masked gunmen in the affluent Sofia suburb of Boyana. A 36-year-old bodyguard was shot twice in the back. Her whereabouts remain unknown.

If the Columbians were after him they would not hire shooters who do not kill from bullet 1.

Something is stinking...

Ha ha, I wonder who these off-the-record sources are from the GDBOP? And how much the Standart and Novinite paid them?
