      Tsvetan Vassilev spews out 10 top lies from Belgrade

      The ex-banker Tsvetan Vassilev who is hiding from the Bulgarian justice system in Belgrade has emerged from the shadows to give the next in a row paid interview full of lies. 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

      Oligarchy in role of Ostap Bender

      “The countess with a changed face is running to the lake,” is the cryptic, and perhaps a bit crazy, telegram that Ostap Bender sends in an attempt to scare the underground millionaire Aleksandr Ivanovich Koreyko. This kind of veiled threat described by the authors behind these fictional characters, Ilya Ilf and Yevgeni Petrov, has been rediscovered by the paid scribblers of the shadowy bosses in Bulgaria.

    • Oligarchy makes fuss about nothing

      Oligarchy makes fuss about nothing

      Certain famed “fighters” for democracy and justice (and nice paychecks) have been in a strange position for years. Other people busily hand them reports and false information that they, just like regular apprentices, run from one institution to the next to submit – content that someone else authored – in exchange of payment. Since its very inception, the NGO Boets (Bulgarian for “fighter”) has been clearly showing one thing – it will serve those who pay the most. The organisation is not even ashamed to disseminate photos of its chairperson alongside the fugitive banker Tsvetan Vassilev, who is being tried for the engineered failure of CorpBank.

    • Panov pardons oligarchs for Brussels’s consumption

      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.

      Telegraph asks: Who interferes in personnel policy of judicial system

      At the end of the past week, the media outlets of the oligarchic behind-the-scenes clique, Dnevnik, Club Z, Frognews and Mediapool, circulated the next in a row ‘declaration’ addressed to the Supreme Judicial Council and authored by an NGO, namely the Bulgarian Judges Association, which received hundreds of thousands leva in grants from foreign foundations. Expectedly, their target again is the lawmaker and publisher of Telegraph and Monitor Delyan Peevski.

      Grant-dependent priests of Themis launch smear campaign against Peevski

      The next in a row ‘active measures’ (read – smear campaign) fully in keeping with the traditions of the communist-era secret services were activated by the grant-funded Bulgarian Judges Association (BJA). The police-like report submitted to the Central Electoral Commission targets the lawmaker of the opposition party Movement for Rights and Freedoms and publisher of Telegraph Media Delyan Peevski.

      Soviet fashion: Radio Free Europe attacking Peevski once again

      A true Soviet-style nefarious operation against Delyan Peevski, lawmaker of the opposition party Movement for Rights and Freedoms (MRF) and Telegraph Media publisher, was carried out recently by the Bulgarian desk of Radio Free Europe. The Bulgarian branch of the otherwise highly-regarded radio station yet again showed that it has not completely severed the umbilical cord with its former employers and still has propensity to execute their orders; to the detriment of Peevski, of course.

      Delyan Peevski puts the backstage clique on edge

      For several days now the bog of the behind-the-scenes clique has been seized by panic. The sworn enemy of the oligarchs and their servitorial staff, the MP of the opposition Movement for Rights and Freedoms and publisher of Telegraph Media Delyan Peevski has garnered the larger part of the nominations from the party structures and is already a part of the candidates’ list for MEPs from the Movement. This news has virtually made the bog’s inhabitants go around in a circle trying to find ways to cast slur on Peevski.

      WEEKLY DIGEST: Week of fake news and fake reports

      Eh, is there any other journalist association that, on the one hand, is fighting for the freedom of speech and transparent media but, on the other – is using fake news and still faker information sources? Naturally, we are talking about the Reporters without Borders (RSF), their favourite World Press Freedom Index and their good friends from Economedia sustained by the indicted oligarch Ivo Prokopiev.
