The Specialized Prosecutor’s Office searched offices of Alfa Finance Company in Sofia connected to businessman Ivo Prokopiev. The operation is in relation with investigation into money laundering after the sale of shares of the privatized and then sold company Kaolin. The prosecutor's office is checking documents and other business transactions, but not the publishing activities of Prokopiev, the acting head of the Specialized Prosecutor’s Office Dimitar Petrov said. No searches have been made. We provided documents to the prosecutor’s office voluntarily, representatives of Alfa Finance commented. Ivo Prokopiev himself called the operation a “demonstrative repression” against him, because in his view these documents can be requested through official channels.
