    • Peevski dragged into F-16 conspiracy theory by attorney for Vassilev

      Peevski dragged into F-16 conspiracy theory by attorney for Vassilev

      Classic fake news with conspiracy theory elements was presented in court by one of the attorneys representing fugitive banker Tsvetan Vassilev – Konstantin Simeonov. The lawyer must have been truly devastated by the fact that the interminable farce of reading the entire indictment in the CorpBank case out loud, a ploy that the Bulgarian Madoff’s defence used to stall proceedings, was finally over and that now the case can actually be heard because he tried to shift the focus by creating a scandalous manipulation, connecting the name of lawmaker and Telegraph Media publisher Delyan Peevski and Vassilev’s absurd claim under the Global Magnitsky Act, on the one hand, to the government’s decision to negotiate the purchase of F-16 fighter planes, on the other.

      Claim against Peevski not considered by US government

      The contrived case filed by fugitive banker Tsvetan Vassilev against lawmaker and owner of Telegraph Media Delyan Peevski under the Global Magnitsky Act has not been considered by the American authorities. Any assertions to the contrary, spread mostly by the Vassilev-funded website Frognews, are a fabrication designed to defame Peevski, the number one enemy of Vassilev and his oligarchic cronies. This was made clear in a statement by Thomas Locke, former senior FBI official, currently managing director of the Washington-based BGR Public Affairs.
