Bulgarian NewsDelicacies to be Served in Bulgarian Government Planes
Monday, 30th March 2015
Up to BGN 48,000 including VAT will be paid by government planes on catering for a period of a year.
The number was revealed through the announcement of a tender on the food and beverage supply necessary for the government planes Airbus and Falcon, as well as the three helicopters, genrally used by the President, PM and Ministers.
The main criterion for the choice of a company is as stated - ''economically most suitable offer''.
According to the official announcement, only 12-year old Scotch and Irish whiskeys, London gin, and Russian vodka will be allowed on board of the government vehicles.
H'órdeuvres will also take a central spot on the menu, with many light dishes featuring shrimp, blue cheese, Kaiser pastrami and many more delicacies. The main courses will mostly involve beef and fish light meals, as well as delicacies such as octopus, calamari and lobsters. There will also be vegetarian options.
Government representatives on board will have a relatively modest choice in terms of deserts - Garash and Saher chocolate cakes, and Tiramisu. In addition, a healthier option will also be available with fruits of all parts of the world, including the exotic mango and papaya.
Bulgaria 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.
