      The people vs the oligarchy

      Dark clouds gather over the oligarchs in Bulgaria. After years of dictating the country’s agenda through their media outlets, they are now seeing their well-oiled propaganda machine starting to squeak. The simple reason is that in an era of social media and easy access to information it is becoming increasingly difficult to deceive people.

      Panov pardons oligarchs for Brussels’s consumption

      The scandalous head of the Supreme Court of Cassation (SCC) Lozan Panov is trying to hook up indicted oligarchs with pardons for Brussels’s consumption. This was revealed by shorthand records of conversations that took place between representatives of the judicial system and a Brussels coordination team tasked with preparing the reports on Bulgaria’s progress in the area of Justice and Home Affairs. The documents were published on the website of the Supreme Judicial Council (SJC) after the heads of the personnel policy of the judicial system voted for such disclosure at a 9 May plenary session.

      Attack against Delyan Peevski: How fake news dies down after Capital strikes

      Do you know who invented lying? If wise sayings are to be believed – it was the devil. Perhaps he suffered from amnesia and that is why he forgot to trademark it, which has led to oversaturation of the market and fierce competition in modern times. In Bulgaria, the most active producer of lies is unmistakably the editorial offices of Prokopiev’s factory for lies, or fake news as they are called these days.

      The port of sixty ships

      In the centre of the big Danubian city of Rousse lie the remnants of an ancient Roman settlement known by the name Sexaginta Prista, or the port of 60 ships. The city was founded in the 1st century AD during the rule of Emperor Vespasian and served as a border castle built on the ruins of a more ancient Thracian settlement. It was an important element in the fortification system along the northern border of the Roman province of Moesia.

      SAC ruling on Peevski case throws behind-the-scenes clique in panic

      The Supreme Administrative Court (SAC) has finally struck down the claim of the quasi-NGO Boets which was filed to shut out the lawmaker and publisher of Telegraph Media from running for MEP. The motives of this fake NGO for opposing Peevski’s candidature is the ill-disguised hypothetical suggestion concerning his permanent place of residence, i.e. whether the MP is living in Bulgaria or not.

      SAC rejects Tsvetan Vassilev’s lie against Delyan Peevski

      The Supreme Administrative Court (SAC) has rejected the slandering claim of fugitive banker Tsvetan Vassilev against lawmaker of the opposition party Movement for Rights and Freedoms (MRF) and Telegraph Media publisher Delyan Peevski. The banker, who is currently on trial for the engineered failure of CorpBank, recently attempted to block Peevski’s MEP candidacy through a claim filed by his pawn of an NGO Boets. It is worth noting that the non-governmental organisation was represented in court by Nikolay Hadzhigenov, another individual affiliated with Vassilev.
