      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.

      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’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.
