4 More Former Bulgarian Ministers to Be Charged over Corruption
Bulgaria’s Chief Prosecutor’s Office is preparing suits against four more former Ministers from the Stanishev government over corruption and abuses.
This was announced Wednesday by Bulgaria’s Foreign Minister, Rumiana Jeleva, after she met with Chief Prosecutor, Boris Velchev.
One of the Stanishev government Ministers, ex-Agriculture head, Valeri Tsvetanov, was already charged with violations in September.
Jeleva did not specify who the other four Ministers will be. One of them is known to be former Labor Minister, Emiliya Maslarova, since Velchev asked the Parliament to lift her immunity over investigation of suspicious deals that she made during her term.
“Apparently, under the new government all institutions are working well,” Jeleva said on her way out adding the work on the implementation of the 57 measures for Bulgaria from the EC monitoring mechanism on Justice and Home Affairs.
