Ex Bulgarian AgriMin Shockingly Accuses Tsvetanov of Mass Spying: Ex  AgriMin  Exposes Shocking Mass Spying in Bulgaria Miroslav Naydenov, photo by BGNES

Miroslav Naydenov, former Agriculture Minister in the Cabinet of the Citizens for European Development of Bulgaria party, GERB, says he has been illegally spied on ever since he took office.

Naydenov made the stunning admission Thursday morning, speaking before bTV in his first interview after the prosecution charged him with corruption.

He denied the charges and insisted it has been a set up.

After being initially hesitant, Naydenov declared that former Interior Minister, Tsvetan Tsvetanov, had indeed been illegally snooping around and eavesdropping on ALL members of the Cabinet, along with President Rosen Plevneliev, possibly former Prime Minister Boyko Borisov, and many other senior officials.

The former Minister accused Tsvetanov of spying in order to blackmail everyone and eliminate all who would get closer to Borisov. He told "horror" stories of how Ministers and other high-ranking people would turn the radio on lauder and let water run in order to hush the bugs they feared were everywhere around them.

According to Naydenov, his colleagues in the Cabinet were terrified by the spying as they all, without exception, felt harassed and nervous.

He also stated that Borisov did not know about the illegal snooping.

"Tsvetanov, you know what you have done! I call on you to step down," the former Minister declared.

He further informed that like former GERB MP, Emil Dimitrov, he had sent his family abroad over fears for their safety.

Naydenov voiced firm belief in the prosecution, saying they would do their job and clean his name.

Clearly a ploy by Boyko to get rid of Tsvetanov by playing tag team with his corrupt servant boy Naydenov. With the polls coming in lower lately and the wiretapping scandal growing Tsvetanov becomes a very convenient scapegoat. Just like the 'indispensable' Djankov became very dispensable when the going got tough.

Boyko is a dangerous dude and one not to be trusted. He'd throw his own mother under the bus to win. Poor bastard. He lusts power so much that he doesn't deserve it. The last thing Bulgaria needs is a Chavez or Lukashenko wannabe.

I seriously think it's time for Bulgarians to bring new actors into the political stage. The filthy commies, the corrupt turks, the old washed up Gypsy of Kostov and the King/Kuneva crony opportunists are just not appropriate for the country. Time for new blood and new faces. Someone like Kristalina Georgieva could be what the country needs.

GERB blew its chance when it decided to follow the same corrupt and destructive path that all former political formations had taken (albeit building a few km of highway here and there).

The best thing to do is to keep the current caretaker government which seems to be quite decent and qualified to lead the country.
