      Gebrev tangles up in his own Dunarit lies

      Emiliyan Gebrev, an arms dealer and associate of the fugitive banker Tsvetan Vassilev, got tangled up in his own lies in yet another interview for bTV. Gebrev, who is on his way to oversaturating the channel’s programming with his second appearance on a bTV show in just a week, gave a long statement whose purpose was to reiterate the manipulation that his attempted poisoning was connected to Dunarit. However, he only managed to sink deeper into the quagmire of manipulations spread by the crime duo of him and Vassilev.

      Political chameleon Kutev wins points at the expense of Delyan Peevski

      The political chameleon Anton Kutev, a leftwing lawmaker, is keeping up the tradition of trying to win points at the expense of MP of the Movement for Rights and Freedoms (MRF) and Telegraph Media publisher Delyan Peevski. Also in accordance with tradition, Kutev was helped in his endeavour by the mainstream media controlled by oligarch Ivo Prokopiev – bTV, more specifically.
