Bulgarian businessmen have been calling the National Revenue Agency (NAP) offices to find out if their accounts abroad will be searched for, NAP Executive Director Krasimir Stefanov reported Saturday.

Stefanov said that NAP offices have been receiving 17 calls over the past week from worried businessmen who say they are enquiring about the Agency’s plans on behalf of a friend.

He added that talks in relation to access to Bulgarians’ accounts in Switzerland and Liechtenstein will start at the beginning of March and that it has not yet been decided whether Bulgaria will pay Germany for providing the information for them.

Stefanov stated earlier Saturday that 25 NAP employees have been fired for corruption.
