      Telegraph also asks to #Whom is Porozhanov

      Whose man is Porozhanov, asks Deutsche Welle (DW) in a commentary about Minister of Agriculture Rumen Porozhanov. Just hours later the commentary was reprinted by Club Z sustained by pharmaceutical boss Ognyan Donev. The Telegraph, as an objective and independent medium also joins in the query, as the query answers the key question, that is on whom the Agriculture Minister depends – is it Ivo Prokopiev, Ognyan Donev, Sasho Donchev or other oligarchs?

      Candidacy that strikes fear in the heart of oligarchy

      In the grips of fear and pre-election exultation, the oligarchy in Bulgaria is furiously producing fake news. One of its prominent mouthpieces Ivan Bedrov, who as a head of the Bulgarian desk of the otherwise highly-regarded Radio Free Europe (RFE) took under his wing former employees of the indicted oligarchs Ivo Prokopiev and Ognyan Donev, recently conducted himself as a veritable internet troll.

      WEEKLY DIGEST: Peevski: Seven days of “Oligarchs of the world, unite!”

      “Oligarchs of the world, unite!” is the slogan under which the past seven days in Bulgaria went by. Indicted “businessmen” in the country and fugitive individuals holed up abroad rolled up their sleeves and got down to attacking their sworn enemy – lawmaker of the opposition party Movement for Rights and Freedoms and Telegraph Media publisher Delyan Peevski – seemingly trying to squeeze an entire five-year plan of fake news into a week.

      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.

      SAC ruling on Peevski case throws behind-the-scenes clique in panic

      The Supreme Administrative Court (SAC) has finally struck down the claim of the quasi-NGO Boets which was filed to shut out the lawmaker and publisher of Telegraph Media from running for MEP. The motives of this fake NGO for opposing Peevski’s candidature is the ill-disguised hypothetical suggestion concerning his permanent place of residence, i.e. whether the MP is living in Bulgaria or not.

      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.

      WEEKLY DIGEST: For a whole week oligarchs seized by fear have been crucifying Peevski

      Almost seven days ago, it transpired that the MP of the opposition party Movement for Rights and Freedoms and publisher of Telegraph Media Delyan Peevski is on the voting list of the Movement and will run for MEP at the end of this month. For years, the MP has been winning the elections in which he participated. Voters know him well, know that he is as good as his word and see that he is fighting the oligarchic shadows in Bulgaria – he forestalls their shady deals and the attempts to foil his legislative initiatives, whereas his media outlets expose the affairs of the indicted bosses.
