At a meeting with the French Ambassador to Bulgaria, Florence Robin, Bulgarian Minister of Culture Velislav Minekov and Vice President Iliana Yotova discussed the possibility of establishing a European Center for Culture and Arts on the island “Sts. Cyricus and Julitta” near Sozopol. Meetings between the Bulgarian Ministry of Culture, the French government and the management of the Louvre, which supports the project, are forthcoming.

Earlier today, Prof. Minekov told the media that he would report to the Prosecutor's Office over a number of violations in restoration of monuments, carried out by unlicensed contractors, without projects and approvals from the Ministry of Culture.

The Ministry has also been preparing a letter in response to the OLAF report, according to which this country should give about 4.5 million euros back to the EU after the repair of the Largo. Minister Minekov said that he would continue to request information about the actions of the Bulgarian Prosecutor's Office over the case.
