      Website of Agent Academician spews blatant lies about CorpBank and Delyan Peevski

      The website carrying out the orders of Ognyan Stefanov (aka Agent Academician) has churned out the latest dose of lies dragging lawmaker and Telegraph Media publisher Delyan Peevski through the mud. Moreover, Stefanov is so desperate that in addition to the now familiar lies and insinuations, he expands his arsenal with a new “argument” – a spicy Serbian curse word. He likely got it from his master Tsvetan Vassilev, who has been hiding in Belgrade for over five years.

      A little over a year after the enforcement of the so-called Peevski Act that has staved off the secondary looting of CorpBank which collapsed by the fault of fugitive banker Tsvetan Vassilev more than BGN 1bn was restored to the lender. That transpired from the statement of the bank’s bankruptcy administrators before the media.

    • SCJ votes again to elect Ivan Geshev as prosecutor general

      SCJ votes again to elect Ivan Geshev as prosecutor general

      Two protest and two bomb threats framed the environment in which the plenary session of the Supreme Judicial Council (SJC) decided to procced with the current selection procedure for new prosecutor general and revote the candidacy of Ivan Geshev. With 20 votes “in favour” and four “against”, the SJC reconfirmed their choice of 24 October, when those same Council members voted for Geshev, for which President Rumen Radev subsequently refused to sign an ordinance. Now the head of state has no choice but to respect the decision of the judicial system’s personnel body and issue and ordinance confirming the selection.

      Tsvetan Vassilev shackles Themis with lies

      Having been holed up in Serbia for five years, hiding from the court cases stemming from the CorpBank collapse, the indicted banker Tsvetan Vassilev has tried to shackle Themis with lies. The new campaign to polish the image of the financial fraudster, who defrauded the lenders’ depositors of billions of levs, was mounted in the courtroom of the Specialised Criminal Court, where the case against him and 18 other defendants charged with syphoning off the bank is being heard.

      Peevski’s critics – on the wrong side of truth

      “Here’s what I don’t understand: how come any Tom, Dick and Harry think they have the right to choose the prosecutor general? Is it hereditary, some sort of genetic malformation or is it that only grant-funded people have this conviction?” This opinion in the comment section of one of oligarch Ivo Prokopiev’s media outlets tells you a lot, if not everything you need to know.

    • Reporters under pressure: a relay event of asking questions about Peevski

      Reporters under pressure: a relay event of asking questions about Peevski

      A curious flash mob has been taking place in the behind-the-scenes clique’s media outlets over the past few days and weeks. Not a day goes by without some prominent reporter of that clique asking prosecutor-general candidate Ivan Geshev a question from the comforts of their own computer. The query is always the same and is passed around like a baton. The participants in this sporting event ask Geshev about Peevski. Ask and do not particularly care for an answer.
