On 29 January, Rferl reported that Bulgarian gaming czar Vasil Bozhkov has been charged in absentia with extortion and attempted bribery among other crimes, and placed on an international wanted list.  He is one of Bulgaria’s richest men and has dominated the country’s gaming business since the early 1990s as well as owning the country’s biggest lottery.  He also owns Levski Sofia, one of the two most popular soccer teams in the Balkan country, as well as a stake in Georgia’s national lottery, and a collection of antiques and paintings.
