      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.

      Selling out Bulgaria … to hit Peevski

      What does one do when, in own words, one has lost a mother, father, brother and best friend owing to “legalised narcotics, such as alcohol, tobacco and pharmaceutical drugs?” Of course, one will grieve, smoke oneself stupid and start shooting films against drug prohibition. And when you have a chance to combine it with a generously sponsored overseas trip (officially with $500,000, as the unofficial sum is yet unknown) you will pack hallucinogens in your luggage and take a plane to Bulgaria where you will get doped “for art’s sake” in front of hotels and in public baths.

      Frog legs kicking against Peevski

      The Frognews people are in the whirl of a crazy verbal dance. They spin, twist and distort, desperately trying to justify their salaries in a vociferous tirade against lawmaker and Telegraph Media publisher Delyan Peevski.

      No worries, doctor! Knock a drink back for Peevski and you will be fine

      It is scary stuff what an inebriated mind can come up with. It is even scarier that the hangover drags for days after that. Have no worries, Dr Popkutuev! Knock a drink back, raise a glass for Peevski and proceed to curse your heart out. You did this two days ago and what happened? You disgorged some hog-wash on the Frognews website entitled by your sober editor “Dictatorship in the Prosecutor’s Office? There is such a thing”. Hic!

    • Peevski, the media and the distortion mirror of Reporters Without Borders

      Peevski, the media and the distortion mirror of Reporters Without Borders

      Do you know the Italian version of the Bulgarian idiom meaning “to talk incessantly about the same thing”? It is literally translated as “still the same soup”. Pauline Adès-Mével, head of Reporters Without Borders’s (RSF) eastern Europe and Balkans desk since 2017, may be French-born but she acts equally Italian and Bulgarian when it comes to those two phrases, as she is regurgitating the same talking points and eating “the same soup” courtesy of the chef of the Capital circle – indicted oligarch Ivo Prokopiev.

      Oligarchy calls for revolt against the state

      With rallying cries for daily protests in the autumn and demands for the Cabinet and the National Assembly to step down, the protégés of the oligarchic circles in Bulgaria took to the streets for a second time, scared by Ivan Geshev’s candidacy for prosecutor general.

      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.
