PROPERTY SCANDAL THREATENS TO BRING DOWN BULGARIAN GOVERNMENT

BNE Intellinews on 26th March reported that the scandal broke earlier in March, when independent investigative news outlet Bivol.bg published an article saying that Tsvetan Tsvetanov — known as Borissov’s right hand man — had bought an extremely luxurious apartment in Sofia for less than 25% of its market price.  Then an anti-corruption NGO revealed that other top Gerb members, including Justice Minister Tstetska Tsacheva, Deputy Minister of Sport Vanya Koleva, Parvanov and Vezhdi Rashidov, head of the parliament’s committee on culture and a former culture minister, had all acquired luxury apartments built by the same company, Artex Engineering, again at a very low cost.  Both Tsacheva and Koleva resigned and their resignations were immediately accepted by Borissov.  However, the resignations have so far failed to kill the latest scandal involving the ruling Gerb party.
