The State Agency for National Security is searching the offices of Kintex state-owned company and is confiscating company documents pertaining to payments in foreign currency. This was announced on Facebook by Alexander Mihailov, former director of the arms trading company Kintex.

“This is happening hours after I disclosed the scheme for siphoning money from the state-run company which Kornelia Ninova’s people activated a few days ago. Under this scheme, more than 800,000 Leva (EUR 409,000) have been paid out, since the beginning of the week, to an offshore company – a dummy intermediary. I was fired three months ago because I refused to get involved in these schemes,” Alexander Mihailov comments.
