Bulgaria: Unprecedented - The Dossier Commission Published the Dossier of Julia Kristeva AKA Agent "Sabina"

Unprecedentedly, for the first time since its creation, the Dossier Commission began publishing the dossier of Agent Sabina on its website, behind the alias is the world-renowned philosopher Julia Kristeva.

The reason is Kristeva's assertion that she was never an agent of the communist secret services. This statement is "not only ridiculous and untrue," but is "slanderous," Krusteva told the French weekly L'Obs. "Somebody wants to harm me," she added.

Julia Kristeva was born in 1941 in Sliven. She graduated French Philology in Sofia and in 1966 went to Paris with a scholarship from the French Government. She was registered at the First General Headquarters of the State Security Service (Foreign Intelligence) in 1971 with the nickname "Sabina".

The Dossier Commission now publishes all available documentation on the case on its website. This is done for the first time since the commission was founded at the end of 2006. The documents of declared contributors to the totalitarian services are available to anyone who has an interest but just in the committee reading room.

According to the published documents, Julia Kristeva was recruited as an agent of the First Central Office of the State Security on June 21, 1971, when she was 30 years old. It happened five years since she left to study in Paris.

She was married to French writer and critic Philippe Sollers at the time she was recruited by the State Security and received the agent name "Sabina". 

The Dossier Commission has also applied a facsimile from the agents' registration log to First Headquarters. In years of work with the files, the commission found that the logs in question were a reliable document certifying whether a person was an agent of the totalitarian services or not.

The commission is also expected to publish the other documents available - Volumes 1 and 2 from her personal file, which contain data from the State Security staff and the work of Agent Sabina.
