      Behind-the-scene clique won: court acquitted Prokopiev for EVN affair

      The behind-the-scene clique won a victory over the state. The Specialised Criminal Court fully acquitted the oligarch Ivo Prokopiev, the former minister of finance Simeon Djankov and the former minister of energy Traycho Traykov, as well as the managers of Prokopiev’s company Bulbrokers on the accusations that they caused damage to the treasury for over BGN 20m with the manipulated sale of the minority state share in EVN Bulgaria Electricity.

      The hour of justice struck: oligarch Ivo Prokopiev and his two "ministers" in anticipation of justice

      The hard moment for the Kaolin oligarch Ivo Prokopiev and his two "ministers" Simeon Djankov  and Traycho Traykov has come. The three of them, who managed to break through the Silver Fund with pensions’ money for the elderly people in our country and who damaged the state treasury with tens of millions of levs, are in anticipation what punishment the Prosecutor's Office will demand for them for the scandalous sale of the residual stake in EVN.

      Oligarch Prokopiev with a new plot to get out of debt

      Another plot to escape both an imminent bankruptcy and prosecution has been put into motion by the indicted oligarch Ivo Prokopiev. This one is similar to his desperate fleeing to Singapore in 2010-2013, when he posed as a victim of some supposed attempted murder in the works just so he can get out of hundreds of millions of levs in debt.

      Prokopiev lobbied for EVN shares sale

      Oligarch Ivo Prokopiev lobbied the National Council for Tripartite Cooperation (NCTC) to support the idea of the state selling its remaining shares in the electricity distribution companies, arguing that it was not a good owner. The Council of Ministers, however, never made a decision on the matter specifically.

      Prokopiev hides behind fake news about Peevski

      Indicted oligarch Ivo Prokopiev tried to conceal the EVN case, which the court started hearing on Thursday, with a campaign of fake news. The shady businessman from Razgrad is being tried for the sale of the state’s remaining stake in the electricity distribution company alongside two former ministers – Simeon Djankov and Traycho Traykov.

    • Prokopiev’s company got VIP contract for EVN sale

      Prokopiev’s company got VIP contract for EVN sale

      Bulbrokers, the company of oligarch Ivo Prokopiev, had a VIP contract for the sale of the minority stake in EVN and thus was involved in a conflict of interest as an investment intermediary and deal broker. This transpired from the testimony of one witness in the case against Prokopiev, former ministers of finance and energy, Simeon Djankov and Traycho Traykov and three employees of Bulbrokers – company manager Radoslav Rachev, and shareholders Peter Vassilev and Lyubomir Evstatiev.
