The list of eavesdroppers includes several other people from Bozhkov’s entourage, including plastic surgeon Eduard Fadel, who is on his party’s national council and was a candidate for parliament.

In the investigation against Bozhkov, the SRS were used to save the lives and health of the citizens, the prosecutor’s office announced at the end of the summer.

The scandal with the wiretapped protesters started on May 20 this year. Then the co-chairman of Democratic Bulgaria, Atanas Atanasov, told BNR that 32 opposition leaders had been monitored by the SRS during the protests until the May 4th elections. He also pointed out the parties – “There is such a people”, “Democratic Bulgaria” and “Stand! Get out! ” (then he stood up, “Stand up! We are coming!”). On occasion

and in the 46th National Assembly there was a special temporary commission to clarify facts about police violence and wiretapping of protesters. It is alleged that this is where the list of the 130 who are alleged to have been wiretapped during the protests under investigation by the Specialized Prosecutor’s Office for coup d’etat came from.

There are no people from “Democratic Bulgaria” and “There is such a people” in the list of wiretapped and monitored by the services during the protests, despite the allegations of Atanas Atanasov at the beginning, an inspection of “24 Chasa” showed. ” whether it has been manipulated.

Most of the people in it are from “Vazrazhdane” by Kostadin Kostadinov – 26. The party was active during discontent against the GERB government and the chief prosecutor. Kostadinov is on the list, the organization’s secretary Nikolay Drenchev, former judge Rumyana Chenalova, lawyer Elena Guncheva, Ivo Ruschev, Iskra Mihaylova and many others who are from its leadership and were candidates for deputies.

Whistleblowers do not

they say to themselves


and admit it. Two conclusions can be drawn. The first is that the main threat to the colonial regime of Borisov and Karakachanov is the Revival. The second is that “Democratic Bulgaria” is a mimicry of this same colonial regime. If Hristo Ivanov or Atanas Atanasov was wiretapped,

there would be a howl

by embassies and

media, would

said on Friday in a video message via Facebook the leader of “Vazrazhdane” Kostadin Kostadinov.

“Stand up BG! We are coming!” is the second political force in terms of the number of its members and activists on the list. These are Maya Manolova, Arman Babikyan and Nikolay Hadjigenov, who claimed to be following them during the protests, Maria Capon and their associates.

“We will sue the state with a class action lawsuit in Strasbourg,” Maya Manolova announced on Friday. According to her, it is illegal to classify the information about the 130 who are allegedly eavesdropped on during the protests of an armed coup investigation, as well as the permission of the Specialized Criminal Court.

“After a conviction against Bulgaria, the Bureau for Control of the SRS was established and an opportunity to convict the state. In order to file such a claim, we need suitable evidence. As MPs, we heard about the list, but we have no official proof. We submit a request to the Specialized Prosecutor’s Office for these 130 people in order to receive official documents and thus to judge the state. If we do not receive this information, we will appeal the refusal. If they do not give them, we will file a class action lawsuit in Strasbourg. This is a serious violation of human rights, “Manolova said.

“Only the request and permission for the implementation of the SRS on the dead member of the Penal Code for an armed coup is grounds for the closure of specialized justice. Of the more than 15,000 wiretapping requests, 80% were allowed. It is not checked whether there is evidence, what are the motives. According to the European Court of Human Rights, this is illegal wiretapping, “Maya Manolova added.
