    Influenced by Soros court in Strasbourg wrongfully convicts Bulgaria

    The European Court of Human Rights (ECHR) has gone beyond its competence with its ruling on the case of Kolevs vs Bulgaria, convicting Bulgaria. On the basis of the ruling, the Strasbourg court, about which a little more than a month ago a French NGO warned that it was controlled by billionaire speculator George Soros, requires Bulgaria to change its constitutional law with regards to its prosecution. The reason is that this way there will be a possibility for introducing criminal sanctions for the Prosecutor General if the latter commits a crime. However, such decision is beyond the competence of ECHR, PIK Agency states in its inquiry.

    One of Bulgaria's national TV stations got caught in a real oligarchic cobweb. Three oligarchs at odds with the justice system managed to spread their tentacles, reaching deep into it: Vasil Bozhkov, charged with inflicting damages to the state treasury to the tune of BGN 700m, indicted fugitive banker Tsvetan Vassilev, and Ivo Prokopiev - an oligarch with two pending cases indicted for privatisation-related affairs.

    Peevski Act challenged by lawyers of shadowy clique

    The Supreme Bar Council (SBC), which has ties to the behind-the-scenes circles and serves the interests of the oligarchy, has challenged the last amendments to the Bank Insolvency Act that were initiated back in 2015 and give legal recourse to the CorpBank bankruptcy administrators to return to its insolvency estate property acquired with the lender's money. The SBC has requested that the constitutionality of the entire package of amendments commonly known as “the 2018 Peevski amendment for CorpBank” be reviewed.

    Oligarchs Bozhkov and Vassilev in a Kremlin script against the state

    The fugitive oligarchs Vasil Bozhkov and Tsvetan Vassilev have made a comical attempt at attacking the state via KGB methods. The two openly joined forces in the latest attack on the government, and PM Boyko Borissov in particular, by exploiting the drama surrounding FC Levski, the football club Bozhkov ran into the ground. The instrument of destruction used in this case is Sasho Dikov, journalist on call and long-time town crier for the Bulgarian Madoff.

    Two-faced Sasho proves his mettle with fake news about Peevski

    Until recently, the legislative initiatives of lawmaker Delyan Peevski were keeping the oligarchy awake at night. Those acts stopped the secondary plundering of CorpBank assets and facilitated the return of BGN 1.25bn to the insolvency estate of the lender whose collapse was engineered by the financial fraudster Tsvetan Vassilev. They also laid the groundwork for introducing more transparency into media ownership and financing.
