Bulgarian Tax Authorities Inspecting Print Media
Monday, 3rd August 2015

All print media outlets are going through inspections concerning their financial activities over the last five years, the National Revenue Agency (NRA) has said. 

After reports emerged on Monday that only the books of Sega, a newspaper published by private gas company Overgas Inc., were being put under scrutiny, officials have announced that the inspection includes all newspapers and magazines.

They have cited a recent report prepared for the agency according to which there is a "risk" of tax evasion among print media publishers. 

According to the NRA, its activities have no relation to editorial policies and are part of a "routine" procedure used to combat tax evasion, the agency says in a statement [BG] published on the Bulgarian-language version of its website. 

Earlier, Sega claimed that it was being targeted by authorities over its comments about how the main ruling party GERB and the second-biggest opposition party DPS had joined hands to vote together on legislation in Parliament to obstruct reforms.

Bulgaria's 6th Largest Parliament Group Dissolved
Saturday, 1st August 2015

The sixth-biggest group in Bulgaria's Parliament dissolved itself on Friday after five of the MPs belonging to it submitted requests to leave it.

Previously, the lawmakers had threatened to quit unless a name dispute is settled.

Bulgarian Democratic Center (BDC), a group that was dominated by a party currently bearing the same name, had 14 MPs, in a legislature of 240, but with the five renegades the number fell just below the ten lawmakers required.

This comes after a dispute between BDC party members and the five (which include the group's co-chair), who are not part of the BDC, over the name of the group.

Svetlin Tanchev, who was group co-chair and who is among the five to quit, had earlier registered a party called People's Union which he insisted should be included in the group's name.

BDC was set up by lawmakers who were previously part of a coalition led by MEP Nikolay Barekov and made it into Parliament within an alliance led by his Bulgaria without Censorship party.

However, most of lawmakers belonging to Barekov's party quit, some of them pledging loyalty to Lider, a party widely thought to be run by businessman Hristo Kovachki which later renamed itself to Bulgarian Democratic Center.

Of the five lawmakers who left (but who remain MPs), some, like Svetlin Tanchev and Rumen Yonchev, had spintered off their parties in the previous legislature to become part of Bulgaria without Censorship.

The dissolution of the group means its lawmakers will not be able to head parliamentary committees or to have a Parliament Deputy Speaker.
