MRF outcast spews fake news about PeevskiMonitor News Agency
The latest serving of lies about enemy number one of the shady political and economic circles in Bulgaria, lawmaker and Telegraph Media publisher Delyan Peevski, came courtesy of the Fake News Factory last Sunday. The media machine for manipulations owned by indicted oligarchs used as a source Movement for Rights and Freedoms outcast Kasim Dal.
In an interview for bTV, the failed politician stumbled all over his attempt to parrot a thesis authored by several indicted oligarchs – namely, that Peevski supposedly protects corporate interests. Dal was way more skillful in omitting the fact that Peevski is among the few to have stood up against the corporate interests suffocating the Bulgarian state and citizens over the past years.
Delyan Peevski has served as lawmaker in several consecutive parliaments. He won more votes than the “modern urban rightwing” at the last elections. He is among the MPs who drafted some of the most significant recent amendments to the legislative framework, which are designed to illuminate the media’s dependencies and stop the plundering of the assets of CorpBank, whose failure was engineered by the oligarchy. He is the publisher of Telegraph Media, whose publications have been tirelessly exposing, with facts and evidence, the behind-the-scenes players’ shady deals for years. Naturally, all of this has annoyed certain people to no end so they decided to “save” society from the people who may open its eyes to these wrongdoings.
The goal is clear – to turn free Bulgaria into a morass again, where the interests of media-owning oligarchs would thrive, conveniently hidden from the justice system behind labels such as “elite” and “honest businessman”, so often used by indicted businessmen like Tsvetan Vassilev, Ognyan Donev and Ivo Prokopiev. The three get media support from yet another oligarch – Sasho Donchev, he of the natural gas industry who has been stealing from Bulgarian consumers for years.
Who is talking?
Kasim Dal was expelled from the MRF in February 2011. Only a month later, he had already created his own political organisation – People’s Party “Freedom and Dignity”, putting as its figurehead leader his fellow MP of the previous parliament Korman Ismailov. By founding the organisation, Dal essentially confirmed the rumours that even before he resigned as deputy leader of the party and was later expelled from it, he had been travelling the country, telling people he would create parallel party structures. Shortly after its founding and dismal showing at the general elections (in coalition with the National Movement for Stability and Progress), the People’s Party “Freedom and Dignity” joined the Reformist Bloc.
