Bulgaria's Chief Prosecutor has asked the National Revenue Agency to disclose tax and social security information about the persons Alexander Manolev, Petar Haralampiev, Krassimir Tomov, Delyan Peevski and Ilko Zhelyazkov, from whom explanations were taken. 
So far, only Vasil Bozhkov has not testified, as he is hiding in Dubai, which is a non-EU country.
