US TREASURY SANCTIONS INFLUENTIAL BULGARIAN INDIVIDUALS AND THEIR EXPANSIVE NETWORKS FOR ENGAGING IN CORRUPTION

On 2 June, the US Treasury advised that OFAC had added 3 individuals and 64 entities to its Global Magnitsky sanctions lists.  The action targets Vassil Kroumov Bojkov, a prominent Bulgarian businessman and oligarch; Delyan Slavchev Peevski, a former MP; and Ilko Dimitrov Zhelyazkov, the former Deputy Chief of the Bulgarian State Agency for Technical Operations who was appointed to the National Bureau for Control on Special Intelligence-Gathering Devices; and the companies owned or controlled by the respective individuals.
