    • Former ambassador with outrageous interference in EP elections in Bulgaria

      Former ambassador with outrageous interference in EP elections in Bulgaria

      A shameless interference in the run-up to the European Parliament elections in Bulgaria has been committed by former ambassador of France to Bulgaria Xavier Lapper de Caban. Contrary to every diplomatic, public and ethics norm of conduct there is, he posted an outrageous message on his Facebook page, in which he not only campaigns in favour of an MEP candidate representing a political coalition with ties to the oligarchy, but also calls for a party currently in the Bulgarian National Assembly to be ejected from the European alliance it is a member of.

      Oppressive shadow diplomacy

      The official start of the Euro vote campaign was announced in Bulgaria less than a week ago. The developments of the following five days can hardly be described logically, because they are barren of worldly logics but result from most vulgar hysteria.

      Agent Ivanov of State Security defames Peevski in Brussels

      A former agent of the communist-era agency State Securty is carrying out a smear campaign against Delyan Peevski, lawmaker of the opposition party Movement for Rights and Freedoms (MRF) and Telegraph Media publisher. Georgi Gotev, who in his capacity as an operative of the obscurantist organisation years ago spied on foreign journalists and who nowadays writes for the Brussels-based website EurActiv, has been spurred into action by the shadowy political and economic circles in Bulgaria following the announcement of Peevski’s MEP candidacy.

    • Journalism of fake news

      Journalism of fake news

      “In a time of universal deceit, telling the truth is a revolutionary act.” George Orwell

      Journalism has always been a force in Bulgaria, but nowadays it has been tarnished by the ambition of a group of people to hold the rights to everything – civil society, democracy, and truth. Embittered by their own fear that they have “control” over these elements only through a web of pawns, these behind-the-scenes players are keen to grab a stranglehold of journalism as well. So that they can hold it captive in some basement, bound and gagged, and silence it as the public conscious is left with fake news only.
