      Reporters under pressure: a relay event of asking questions about Peevski

      A curious flash mob has been taking place in the behind-the-scenes clique’s media outlets over the past few days and weeks. Not a day goes by without some prominent reporter of that clique asking prosecutor-general candidate Ivan Geshev a question from the comforts of their own computer. The query is always the same and is passed around like a baton. The participants in this sporting event ask Geshev about Peevski. Ask and do not particularly care for an answer.

      City hidden under a city

      Underneath the city centre of Vidin, in the north west of Bulgaria, lie the barely explored remains of the ancient Roman city of Bononia.

      Vassilev’s attorneys hide their client with lies about Peevski

      Do you know when the indictment against Tsvetan Vassilev and 17 other individuals stemming from the heist of the century known as the CorpBank collapse started to be heard in earnest by the Specialised Criminal Court?
