      Delyan Peevski: Pawns of Vassilev spew fake news against the lawmaker

      Pawns of fugitive banker Tsvetan Vassilev are spewing fake news regarding the supposed poisoning of his friend Emiliyan Gebrev. Days after the newspaper Capital, published by another indicted oligarch in Ivo Prokopiev, spread the information that the arms dealer was given the Novichok nerve agent in 2015, the story was picked up by Vassilev’s NGO Boets. In a lengthy Facebook post, the organisation, which gained popularity with the fact that its boss Georgi Georgiev personally visited the fugitive banker in Belgrade, is once again trying to entangle the name of lawmaker and Telegraph Media publisher Deliyan Peevski in the whole mess of lies.

Of course, without any collateral. According to reports by CorpBank's bankruptcy administrators, over BGN 90 million have been syphoned off through this scheme, subsequently captured by fictitious cessions at the time of sequestration.
