This was prompted by the charges that the Prosecutor’s Office brought up against the former head of the Military Information agency (editor’s note – the military intelligence) Gen. Plamen Angelov and the incumbent Gen. Svetoslav Daskalov a week ago for issuing 504 approvals for the highest-level access to NATO and EU classified information in violation of the law.

      Telegraph Media refers outrageous Black Swan case outcome to EC and SJC

      The wife of judge №1 in the country Lozan Panov has a criminal record with the police. This is a fact of reality substantiated by an official document provided by the Ministry of Interior. As it turns out, the file on the case has not been saved, which destroys any chance of finding out what exactly Elisaveta Panova did 15 years ago. However, the mention of her name in a 2004 report of a suspected crime as a perpetrator of an act of hooliganism – resisting authorities, a misdemeanor under Art. 325, Par. 2 of the Penal Code – is still in the database.

      The journalists from the website Frognews roam the farmers’ markets with their ear to the ground. Whatever they hear about Delyan Peevski goes up on their website immediately.
