Bulgarian NewsBulgaria Needs New Body to Fight Graft Among Politicians - Audit Office Chief
Monday, 30th March 2015
The newly appointed Chairman of Bulgaria’s National Audit Office Tsvetan Tsvetkov has backed a suggestion to set up a new body specifically charged with looking into the wealth of politicians.
In an interview with BNR radio Tsvetkov said on Sunday a change to existing legislation might be needed to enable inspection of the sources of funds and properties owned by politicians.
It is outside the powers of the National Audit Office now to check whether politicians own or use properties registered in someone else’s name, or stay at posh hotels while on trips abroad.
“Maybe a specialized body should be set up as is the case in Romania, for example,” said Tsvetkov.
Bulgaria to Grant 10 000 People with Refugee Status by End of Year
Sunday, 29th March 2015
The chairperson of the State Agency for Refugees (DAB) Nikola Kazakov stated on Saturday that Bulgaria should grant over 10 000 people with refugee status by the end of the year.
Kazakov said that most of the refugees in Bulgaria were Kurds from Syria and Iraq and nearly half of the newcomers in 2015 were illiterate.
In his words, a completely new strategy for solving the refugee problem was already prepared, Kazakov revealed in an interview for the Bulgarian National Radio.
According to him, several strategies were in place until the end of 2014, which would be replaced by a single, united strategy that takes into account the new challenges.
Kazakov added that the European Commission has readiness to allocate additional funds for urgent measures addressing the refugee problem, next to the EUR 10 M that had already been negotiated.
