      The witness Biser Lazov also disclosed facts concerning the “media investments” made by Vassilev in the period of 2012-2014 and explained that after a publication exposing him in a Sofia daily resulting from the fact that he was endowed with “Mister Economics” award in 2011, the fugitive banker started buying journalists in order “to neutralise any action against him” and to discredit his foes.
