Why Bulgaria’s Prosecutor General Ivan Geshev sees crime and corruption everywhere, but not in the Council of Ministers, where public money is spent, this country’s President Rumen Radev asked on Wednesday shortly after Geshev tasked the State Agency for National Security to probe the entire privatization period. The problem is not the attack against the Bulgarian head of state, but the way the country is governed and the state services are controlled and used, President Radev underlined while commenting the recent wiretaps implicating him in criminal activity. What is the name of the authority that does wiretapping in Bulgaria? This is the State Agency for National Security. To whom the State Agency for National Security is subordinated? It is directly subordinated to the Council of Ministers and the Prime Minister. Alongside the epic fight against smuggling, the Prime Minister has gradually asserted himself the right to summon the Attorney General and the Chairman of SANS, President Radev added. And in the process of combating smuggling, won’t it be the “inconvenient” that will be dealt with? The question is why these authorities missed the water crisis, the waste crisis, the collapse of the Commercial Registry, the gambling crisis, Rumen Radev went on to say.
