For years, BLITZ has been exposing the cases of native pseudo-journalists-rackets and their guarantors, now their association has finally been illuminated by justice
What connects the iconic crime hero of the Transition – the drug lord Krasimir Kamenov – Kuro – one of the heirs of the mythical group VIS-2, the ruiner of KTB Tsvetan Vassilev, who stole billions from the depositors in the bank, two (allegedly) „journalists“ from the website „Bird“ – Atanas Chobanov and Dimitar Stoyanov, the indicted oligarch Bobokov and the actual „changemakers“ „Kircho and Asencho“ – Kiril Petkov and Asen Vasilev?
Very simple – an alliance of interests to attack the state and institutions. At the same time, padded with a lot of money and with international support provided.
At a press conference, which will certainly be remembered for a long time, the prosecutor’s office, led by Ivan Geshev, presented striking data on the connections of people from the underworld with white-collar criminals, politicians and their media personnel. Because it’s one thing to have educated guesses about such connections, and quite another when audio recordings and direct evidence nail them down.
„Ceco from Belgrade“ provides the unlimited funding
According to the chief prosecutor Geshev, this is the „conquered state“ and we cannot but agree with him. What, if not a conquered country, is the agreement between the above-mentioned persons for the removal of Geshev? Or some 400,000 euros secured for the dismissal of bosses in the Ministry of Internal Affairs who are inconvenient for organized crime? And when these people order the destruction of investigators, prosecutors, judges and police officers and call them „pests“?
Let’s recall that Tsvetan Vassilev is being sued for the bankruptcy of KTB and dragged over BGN 5 billion from the savings of Bulgarians. But instead of facing the court, he has so far been hiding from justice in Belgrade – from where he has been conducting campaign after campaign against the prosecutor’s office, specialized justice and his enemies for the ninth year. With the stolen money, he hires American lobbyists, says „repressed“ and although his Russian connections are as thick as ship ropes (it is enough to remember that he wanted to give the sanctioned Russian oligarch Konstantin Malofeev two arms factories and a telecom), he wins over others in them.
What about the Bobokov brothers? After the prosecutors chased them for the hazardous waste that their companies buried wherever they wanted, and the witnesses against them began to die under strange circumstances, they also hired American lobbyists and began to claim that they were fighting the „junta“ that held them responsible for the crimes. By the way, the same „junta“ also fought Vasil Bozhkov, and he got 19 charges from the Bulgarian justice system. And another accused (until recently) oligarch – Ivo Prokopiev, and he is „for justice“, for „judicial reform“ and for „rule of law“. But if he can such justice as not to hang him. He, on the other hand, surrounded himself with dozens of NGOs, most of them with foreign funding, with convenient journalists installed in the big televisions, as well as with … attention, politicians who today present themselves as „change“. Because these, the new politicians, also shone today at the press conference, like „Kircho and Asencho“ – they did what they were told, even though they were a bit „living in another world“ and „foolish“…
But let’s return to the two native „great“ „investigative“ journalists – Chobanov and Stoyanov. What do you think, is it normal for a „journalist“ like Dimitar Stoyanov, beating his chest about how „moral“ he is, to have a friendly conversation with the Kuro mafia? Or to write notes (if we assume that Mitko S. is Dimitar Stoyanov): „Hello! We have unlimited funding from Ceco from Belgrade for Geshev. He takes on lobbyists from the States. Curro also meets Ovidio from Switzerland. They said they also sent you sales material from Zurich. It’s important to find people to scream against Cascetta. We will tell them what. Kokorcho’s Tony Perfume is also looking for incriminating material and will help. Then our people will take over from the States to finish it. There are more radical options, but for now this is how we operate. Mitko S.“?
Atanas Chobanov and Dimitar Stoyanov are close to Kuro
What is the „more radical“ option to „terminate“ the chief prosecutor Ivan Geshev? Hopefully one of the investigators will remember to ask this famous „Mitko BIRD“. We don’t want to imagine what it could be, even more so with the „unlimited funding“ of „Ceco from Belgrade“ and as soon as 400,000 euros are given to „fire“ someone inconvenient…
Mitko also brags that he could make someone a „star“ by sending him to Vaklinov and Vesco Dremdzhiev. This is how the propaganda machine, headed by Tsvetan Vassilev and Ivo Prokopiev, works – financing is provided, the inconvenient are prepared, speakers are found, denunciations are released, expensive American lobbyists are hired, who are paid with appropriated money and the services of mentors there is. It’s quite simple.
So, Geshev is right – the „conquered state“ is there and shines in its full glory today. But it is up to us not to allow its tentacles to replace reality and suck the resources of the already impoverished Bulgarian people. Because this parallel state of Kuro and Mitko, of Chobanov and Tsetso from Belgrade, of Prokopiev and Boboka, had a government until very recently. In which the „foolish“, but obedient to them, „Kircho“ and „Asencho“, were the Prime Minister and the Minister of Finance… A sad story.
