      State Fund of Oman withdraws claims against Bulgaria over CorpBank

      Evidence against Tsvetan Vassilev in the CorpBank case contributed to taking the decision of great importance to the state – it is related to the financial pyramid which collapsed owing to the fugitive “pharaoh”. The Court of Arbitration in Washington has finally settled the dispute between Bulgaria and the Omani fund and on 13 August ruled on the international arbitration case No. ARB/15/43 filed by Omani State General Reserve Fund against Republic of Bulgaria with the International Center for Settling Investment Disputes in Washington, Bulgarian Ministry of Finance reported.

      Peevski: A spoon of tar in a barrel of CorpBank honey

      A certain journalist of Duma daily shows muscle to demonstrate that he is still alive and kicking. A commendable effort for a newspaper which now publishes more obituaries than opinion pieces. Commendable but not quite. Because there is a spoon of tar in a barrel of honey where the fugitive banker used to thrust his hand every day until the barrel was emptied. And this has made the analysis meaningless and turned into a fake.

    • Bulgarian Madoff and Bivol in a tight embrace aiming to hit Peevski

      Bulgarian Madoff and Bivol in a tight embrace aiming to hit Peevski

      A table heaped with Serbian grill and about a dozen guests around it. Sounds like a remake of the Last Supper, doesn’t it, but it is not. The events are unfolding in this day and age (it is not clear when because no one tells you) but the place is a blue-chip restaurant in Belgrade, a real safe haven for fugitive banker Tsvetan Vassilev who is hiding from the Bulgarian justice system.

      Tsvetan Vassilev instructs agent Academician via handy phone equipped with flashlight

      Ognyan Stefanov, aka agent Academician of the former State Security, and attorney Lazar Karadaliev, who is on trial for money laundering, received instructions from Tsvetan Vassilev, who fled to Serbia after engineering the collapse of CorpBank, via mobile phone. This was revealed by Biser Lazov, the lead witness in the case stemming from the embezzlement of billions from the lender by the fugitive banker, during a hearing in the Specialised Criminal Court.

      CorpBank affair, 5 years later

      Five years after the most massive heist in the Bulgaria’s modern history – the collapse of the CorpBank pyramid – fugitive banker Tsvetan Vassilev is still keeping at his disposal about BGN 5 to 6bn. He squanders the money of the defrauded depositors on lavish life in Belgrade and generous fees paid to lawyers, judges of the oligarchy and, of course, the media and expensive journalists who run his talking points and try to present him as a “victim” of robbery, while they themselves are the real victim.

    • Stoyana defends Kostov with fake news about Peevski

      Stoyana defends Kostov with fake news about Peevski

      Stoyana Georgieva, the one-time spokesperson for former PM Ivan Kostov who must be hoarse from shouting out all those lies from the rooftops, seems to have suffered a heatstroke. And understandably so – the temperatures out there are in the 30s, people get muddled by the scorching heat. Stoyana must have stood too long in the sun because she has gotten completely tangled up in her own fables in her bid to defend her guru Kostov with the latest fake news about lawmaker Delyan Peevski.

    • Agent Academician, get it off your chest already…

      Agent Academician, get it off your chest already…

      The website Frognews, owned by agent of the communist-era State Security Ognyan Stefanov, is very sad these days. The negligible publication, which for years has been operating as an unofficial press office of the fugitive banker hiding in Serbia Tsvetan Vassilev, recently decided to act the honourable and distance itself from its long-time benefactor.

      Tsvetan Vassilev spews out 10 top lies from Belgrade

From his deluxe estate in Belgrade the man indicted for syphoning off CorpBank billions has spewed out ten top manipulations into a “friendly” microphone of an even friendlier journalist, owner of Glasove (Voices) website Yavor Dachkov
