Agent Academician reads, not only writes about Peevski

Delyan Peevski

Ognyan Stefanov (Agent Academician) reads too. This is the conclusion we have come to after politely drawing his attention to the fact that the latest Frognews article spreading fake news about lawmaker and Telegraph Media publisher Delyan Peevski was riddled with spelling mistakes.

After, no doubt, taking a look at the “facsimile of disgrace” available in the Monitor News Agency, Agent Academician must have thought of the joke about the poor writer Chukcha who could not recognise his own ineptitude because he refused to read books. We say that because Agent Academician quickly corrected the absurd mistakes in the text, the most glaring of which was the spelling of the MP’s name as “Delun”. However, the recycled lie that Delyan Peevski stood to receive money from CorpBank, whose failure was engineered by Tsvetan Vassilev, is still in there, as is the wrong spelling of the name of European Public Prosecutor Laura Kovesi as “Laursa”.

This is the type of illiterate and poorly patched up lies for which the fugitive banker is paying from his hiding place in Belgrade. The Bulgarian Madoff’s methods of communication are straight out of an Emir Kusturica dark comedy – the fugitive banker writes his instructions in Serbo-Bulgarian on a napkin in some Belgrade restaurant. Or he gives orders over his “secret phone” – an ancient Nokia model whose fanciest feature is a flashlight. It sounds ridiculous, but it is true. Just as it is true that his wife, Antoaneta, and his daughter, Radosveta, used to spend CorpBank money on expensive lingerie and perfumes, as described by witness statements. And demonstrating provincial manners fit for the ugly sisters of Cinderella – again, according to witness statements.

For the shameless cynicism of running a bank as a financial pyramid for his own gain, Tsvetan Vassilev has already been indicted. He has been charged with four crimes under the Penal Code. The first charge against him is for heading an organised crime group set up with self-interest motives and including an official. He faces 5 to 15 years of jail time under that legal text.

The second charge is for gross embezzlement with aggravating circumstances, which is punishable by 10 to 20 years of imprisonment. This charge relates to the missing BGN 206m from the vault of the failed CorpBank.

The third and fourth are embezzlement charges.

Because of these charges, which are supported with substantial evidence, Tsvetan Vassilev has been hiding in Belgrade, afraid to face the judicial system in Bulgaria. Unlike Delyan Peevski, who has nothing to do with the plundering of CorpBank and yet has been audited and has subjected voluntarily to inspections by all sorts of institutions. The organised media group controlled by the Fake News Factory even got ahold of his international flights – as if travelling was a crime.

Tsvetan Vassilev is spewing lies and slander against Peevski to draw attention away from his own persona. His plan is being carried out by “journalists” on call like the aforementioned Ognyan Stefanov. The former State Security agent is all too familiar with the old tricks of the secret police – that is what he worked. Those same tools he is now placing in service of Tsvetan Vassilev, from whom he has received hefty sums in cash and in person (according to witness Biser Lazov).

The level of professionalism demonstrated in writing instructions on a napkin in a Belgrade restaurant perfectly translates into the quality of their execution. It is a low-quality product with sunflower oil and wine stains all over it.

Tsvetan Vassilev should not be allowed to use as his mouthpieces journalists eager to devour the crumbs left from the plundered CorpBank. He should be held accountable by the Bulgarian judicial system, from which he has been hiding by giving either preposterous excuses or no explanations at all. Are Ognyan Stefanov, Lyuba Kulezich and Georgi Georgiev, chairperson of the NGO Boets, the attorneys of Tsvetan Vassilev? Is this tragicomic theatre company supposed to prove Vassilev’s innocence?

Here are the facts: First Steve Hanke, applied economist at the John Hopkins University in Baltimore, and then the global consulting firm AlixPartners, followed by one of the most credible arbitration institutions in the world – the International Centre for Settlement of Investment Disputes (ICSID) based in Washington – concluded adamantly that CorpBank did not operate as a real bank and could not have been saved for the simple fact that it had been brutally syphoned off by the fugitive banker.

The Bulgarian judicial system is well aware of what the international experts have said. This is the reason why Tsvetan Vassilev is hiding. In the meantime, Agent Academician’s job is to wag the dogs…

And are still suffering from multiple personality disorder being torn between their life of ordinary citizens and the role of secret agents. Among the State Security activists there is one journalist, who today caters for the interests of fugitive banker Tsvetan Vassilev.

    The theme of water crisis in Pernik has leaked to the oligarchs’ websites albeit seen from a weird perspective – contrary to any reason and completely out of line these websites quote the name of lawmaker and publisher of Telegraph Media Delyan Peevski. The so-called “media” servicing the oligarchs’ interests follow this tradition with enviable tenacity. Because the assignment sent down to them by their publishers is to pin the name of Peevski on any resonant theme.
