Commenting article: French Ambassador Urges Bulgarians Not to Emigrate and 'Leave Country to Peevski'

Outgoing French Ambassador Xavier Lapeyre de Cabanes has called on Bulgarians not to emigrate, arguing those who did were leaving the country into the heads of controversial lawmaker Delyan Peevski.

Throughout his term, De Cabanes has often spoken critically of Peevski, an MP and alleged media mogul whose appointment as head of the national security and counter-intelligence agency sparked nationwide protests in the summer of 2013.

"I have never stopped telling young Bulgarians whom I have met, who live in Bulgaria now and many of whom have confided with me their hesitation to leave the country, that if they emigrate, they will leave their country to Peevski. Doesn't Bulgaria deserve better than that?"
