BGR Government Affairs does not work for the government of Bulgaria

Contrary to published accounts, BGR Government Affairs does not work – and has never worked – for the government of Bulgaria or any of its ministries. BGR proudly works for Mr. Delyan Peevski and is paid by him for its services.

Contrary to published accounts, BGR Government Affairs does not work – and has never worked – for the government of Bulgaria or any of its ministries. BGR proudly works for Mr. Delyan Peevski and is paid by him for its services. Unfortunately, a growing component of what we have to do to assist Mr. Peevski is to publicly deny and try to correct utterly false news stories. The news stories published lately that suggest that BGR is being paid by the government of Bulgaria to help Mr. Peevski is the latest false story that we need to correct.
At one point, both BGR and a company called Sanitas International worked for the government of Azerbaijan. Government disclosure documents say so, as they should. BGR still has Azerbaijan as a client. Critics of Mr. Peevski have seized on the coincidence that Sanitas and another firm once worked for an agency of the Bulgarian government to falsely assert that the government of Bulgaria was paying BGR though Sanitas. That’s untrue and, in fact, ridiculous. BGR must disclose who pays its bills. If BGR were being paid by the Bulgarian government, it would have to say so in public documents. Opponents of Mr. Peevski are clearly reaching very far to slander him. That’s sad.
