Bulgaria without Censorship: With our appearance today parliament is divided into mafia and citizens

20 March 2014 | 14:24 | FOCUS News Agency
Sofia. “With our appearance here today, the Bulgarian parliament is now divided into mafia and citizens,” said Nikolay Brekov, leader of the newly-established Bulgaria without Censorship party, speaking at a briefing at parliament after filing at the administration of the parliament a draft bill envisaging audits of the property and income of people occupying high-ranking state and other positions and of the people connected with them, briefly the Clean Hands draft bill, FOCUS News Agency reporter said.
“Those, who back this draft bill, will be part of the citizen’s society. Those, who refuse to sign it, will remain in the shady part of Bulgarian politics,” Barekov remarked.
“The philosophy of this draft bill is that it is not important what sort of a man one is when entering politics. One may have BGN 5, while the other may have half a million. What is important is whether one will leave it as one has entered into it,” the new politician commented further.

Barekov’s statement came in connection with the interest shown in the donation deposit which he had made to the association.
“Under the Political Parties Act Nikolay Barekov does not have the right to donate more than BGN 10,000 as a physical person to the political union which Bulgaria without Censorship takes part in.
On January 29, 2014 Barekov has made a donation of BGN 480,000 to the account of the civil association Bulgaria without Censorship in Raiffeisenbank. The money is from his personal savings.
The wish of the donor is the money to be used for covering the expenses on the offices of the association in the country, which deal with charity. […]
The spending of the money is strictly monitored by an administrative committee, which controls the finances and the infrastructure of its use in the frames of the opening of offices throughout the country.
Part of the donation made by Nikolay Barekov goes or paying the rents of the offices used by civil association Bulgaria without Censorship. […]
Nikolay Barekov gave up on the bank secret, thus opening a new page in the Bulgarian political activity, becoming the first politicians who has not earned his fortune through swap deals, privatisation and frauds but enters politics by donating his personal money to the interest of the Bulgarian citizens in need,” the statement said further.

Nikolay Barekov opened on Saturday a party office at an official ceremony in the town of Dupnitsa, Radio FOCUS – Pirin reported.
Bulgaria without Censorship’s members, among whom was former TV host Rosen Petrov, attended the event.
Nikolay Barekov remarked at the beginning of a sitting at a local hotel that despite the fact Bulgarian women celebrated today, it should be mentioned Bulgaria was in the midst of an unprecedented crisis and they were the only party who had made this issue a centre and base of their political platform. According to him, ”things aimed at discrediting [people or organisations]” and ”dirt” were poured over everyone trying to destroy Bulgaria’s political mafia.
”There are currently money laundering activities in Bulgaria and drugs are exported and in return expensive cars are being paid for, which are imported into the country,” Mr Barekov said further.
He posed a rhetorical question, asking in what way the armoured vehicles of the Citizens for European Development of Bulgaria (CEDB) party had been bought.
He further said that, in his opinion, a residence in the Boyana residential district in the capital city Sofia, where political meetings were held, was maintained with state-owned money and people could not even come to suspecting the things being done.
Mr Barekov added [leader of the Bulgarian Socialist Party (BSP)] Sergey Stanishev and [CEDB leader] Boyko Borisov had made him very angry and they would be soon in prison serving lengthy sentences.
He also said he was the only politician who, instead of buying himself a yacht and an armoured limousine, had transferred a donation of some BGN 480,000 to his election campaign.
”Bulgaria without Censorship will fight to win the forthcoming European elections,” Nikolay Barekov also added.
He said his party would win the elections in Dupnitsa Municipality.
In his words, he expects its members will become some 25,000 in number by the end of March.

Bulgaria without Censorship established its municipal organisation in the town of Kyustendil also on Saturday.
Lawyer Vasil Ivanov was unanimously elected Chairperson of Bulgaria without Censorship's Kyustendil municipal organisation.
The party's municipal office in Kyustendil was also opened.
”We will introduce a draft bill for Operation Clean Hands at Parliament next week,” Nikolay Barekov said speaking in Kyustendil, Radio FOCUS – Kyustendil reported.
In his words, if it is voted down, they [the lawmakers] will show they are a mafia.
According to him, any mistake could be forgiven yet when a mother cannot feed her child, cannot send him or her to school, when children, mothers and senior citizens have no access to quality medical aid, this means the state is a criminal organisation and this needs to be punished.
”There needs to be a return game. Whoever says there should be no return games in politics is a cynic,” Mr Barekov said.
In his words, six people set themselves afire because of CEDB leader Boyko Borisov.
”As now mothers give birth at home, this [Bulgaria] is a cave country, this cannot be Europe,” Nikolay Barekov also added.
”I have been seriously attacked in a bitter, serious campaign aiming at discrediting me over the past days,” he remarked.
According to him, this does not worry him but rather makes him angrier and more determined to ”sweep away” the people at the Parliament.
In his words, his party aims at making as many people as possible vote in its favour [at the European elections] in May and also at early parliamentary elections in July.
”The third place [at elections] sociologists say we will have does not satisfy us. We want the first one,” he said.
He also commented that, according to sociologists, his party was mostly liked by people aged 35 or younger and Bulgaria without Censorship was the only chance to keep these people in Bulgaria.

The questions are, as follows:
1. Mr Borisov, do you have any participation or have you ever been mediator in the establishment of media groups and are you ready to become subject of the Clean Hands operation in connection with your incomes and property, as well as the people connected with you, such as Tsvetelina Borislavova?
2. Is Tsvetelina Borislavova connected with the shady financing of the offnews.bg website?
3. Will the big property owner Tsvetan Tsvetanov finally explain how with a state employee’s salary he managed to purchase 6 apartments, what kind of consultative activity he has been involved with so as to boost his fortune with more than BGN 120,000 and whom his consultative service was addressed to?
4. How come Tsvetelina Borislavova acquired 35% of the Bulgarian Telecommunication Company (BTK) overnight through SIBANK for compensatory instruments without clear origin of her capital?
5. Has Borislavova helped the Russian mafia in the person of Thor Björgólfsson through the protection provided by Boyko Borisov?
6. Why did Borislavova provid cards for free-of-charge use of the sports facilities in Pamporovo resort to the government of the CEDB and the MPs with the party? Did Borisov helped for chasing away the state as an owner of the Pamporovo AD?
7. Mr Borisov, is it for your partner Ivo Prokopiev and you to hold the monopoly over the online media?
8. What will you say to the Bulgarian taxpayers about the fact that you have purchased your second home in Boyana, known as the Boyana Brothel, not with your own financial means but with money from CEDB’s subsidy?
9. How will you answer to my question, asked in my capacity of a taxpayer, that using public money the CEDB has impudently declared as a property deal the purchase of two armoured Audi vehicles at the price of BGN 166,569.43 and 206,206.77? Who is the importer of these vehicles, what is their real price and has the commission fee been returned under the counter?
10. How will you prove that you have been donating your salary received from the state posts you occupy and why don’t you announce in public whom you have donated your salary to?
11. Through what mediator has the CEDB rented the property known as the Boyana Brothel and was the renting contract declared before Sofia Municipality? Who is the real renter – a physical person or the party?
12. Mr Borisov, whom are you more afraid of – Sreten Yosich, the Bulgarian voters, or rather of my entering the politics?

I guess [leader of the Citizens for European Development of Bulgaria (CEDB) and former prime minister Boyko] Borisov got very nervous after I called him a bedpan of the Movement for Rights and Freedoms (MRF),” Nikolay Barekov commented minutes after the incident.
Short after the news broke in the media the party came out with an official position on the issue.
“Events on the night to Sirni Zagovezni, when a purposeful shooting took place in front of the office of Bulgaria without Censorship party and the cabinet of the leader, are absurd for a European country but also indicative for the extreme amorality of the political temper in the country,” the official position of the Bulgaria without Censorship party said.
“The members of the leadership of the Bulgaria without Censorship party and our chairperson Nikolay Barekov are fully aware of what people we are dealing with and the size of the mafia mentality that has seized the entire political smart set,” the statement said further.
The party also requires the law-enforcement authorities to find and arrest the perpetrator and the one that have ordered the crime as soon as possible. It says that the motives are absolutely clear.
“When the deep ties and the genesis of the mobsters in the politics are being revealed, this is how they react. When we filed the Clean Hands law, which will divide the politicians into mobsters and citizens, this is the logical reaction of the political mafia,” the statement reads further.
“Yesterday leader of the VMRO, Krasimir Karakachanov, speaking during our first party conference, revealed the home truth about the Citizens for European Development of Bulgaria (CEDB), that former SIK member Boyko Borisov is a product of the Movement for Rights and Freedoms (MRF) and that he has earned his fortune at the expense of the Bulgarian nation.
The respond was not late. [CEDB deputy chairperson and former interior minister] Tsvetan Tsvetanov started speaking about the “seraglios”, as if someone else and not [leader of the Citizens for European Development of Bulgaria (CEDB) and former prime minister Boyko] Borisov used to go there so present Karakachan dogs and beg for political favours.
The shameful truth about the shady products in the Bulgarian politics appeared on the surface,” the statement said.
Later on, in the early afternoon the party organised an extraordinary press conference to continue discussing the incident.
Nikolay Barekov arrived at the press conference wearing a bulletproof vest.
“Yesterday the weak point of Boyko Borisov [chairperson of the Citizens for European Development of Bulgaria (CEDB) and former prime minister] has been found,” said Nikolay Barekov.
“Next time they organise their banal tricks they should be aware that in fact I do not have any personal life – my son is with me at my office,” Barekov said.
Barekov also commented on how he spent the day yesterday, how he left his office and how a person inside the building sheltering party’s office told him about the shooting.
“I guess they expected me to be at the office and to hide under the desk when I hear the shooting – this was their goal. It is known that I stay at the office until 11 p.m. In this case, however, I was with my son,” Barekov commented further, adding that the shooting aimed at threatening the people who were with him.
“I am wearing this bulletproof vest not to protect myself but to mock the perpetrators,” he remarked.
“Boyko Borisov’s weak point has been found. It is not by chance that yesterday in the district of Kardzhali he commented on what Krasimir Karakachanov [VMRO leader] said – that Borisov’s entire career is a fact thanks to the seraglios of the Movement for Rights and Freedoms (MRF) and [Ahmed] Dogan. This is Borisov and Tsvetanov’s Achilles' heel,” Nikolay Barekov said further.

We will say who will run Bulgaria and when there will be elections: Bulgaria without Censorship leader

28 February 2014 | 14:21 | FOCUS News Agency
Sofia. “On the background of the overall tensioned situation in the Bulgarian policy, on the background of the hatred and division, we have the decisive vote. We will say who will govern Bulgaria and when there will be elections. The next Bulgarian government will not happen without us and will not be legitimate.” That is what leader of Bulgaria without Censorship Nikolai Barekov said, cited by FOCUS News Agency .
“One of the common visions we share with Dvizhenie Gergyovden (George's Day Movement) is about the Clean Hands operation. There are no politicians among their members that carry the negatives of the executive power during the transition period. You will not find such politician with us as well. The draft bill we will submit after the holidays will split politicians in Bulgaria in two – politicians and mobsters,” Barekov said.

Bulgaria without Censorship is the key to parliament’s dissolving: politicians (ROUNDUP)

Bulgaria without Censorship is the key to parliament’s dissolving: politicians (ROUNDUP)

27 February 2014 | 00:00 | FOCUS News Agency
Sofia. There is already serious fuss around the newly established Bulgaria without Censorship party of former journalist Nikolay Barekov. The news that two independent MPs will now represent Bulgaria without Censorship party at the parliament and will even file two draft bills on behalf of the party is much discussed by the politicians over the past couple of days, as the commentaries continued on Wednesday.
“When one has money, one does not need to take part in elections but simply buy already elected members of the parliament and thus form a parliamentary group,” said Boyko Borisov, leader of the oppositional Citizens for European Development of Bulgaria (CEDB) and former prime minister of Bulgaria, speaking with journalists at parliament.
“What I cannot understand, however, is why [leader of Bulgarian socialists Sergey] Stanishev is so happy with this new group,” Borisov added.
He commented further that it might turn out that Bulgaria without Censorship in fact backed the Bulgarian Socialist Party (BSP) and the Movement for Rights and Freedoms (MRF) and helped them stay in power by securing the parliamentary quorum through the independent MPs.
“I think that it is highly important to see what will happen in the next days. We will be able to see how a party is positioned in the [political] area and whether this party will turn into a crutch of the Bulgarian Socialist Party (BSP) and the Movement for Rights and Freedoms (MRF),” said Boyko Borisov.
“The BSP lost one MP, while the CEDB – two. Bearing in mind that the BSP is the ruling party, it is harder for it. While the CEDB was in power, none of our MPs left the parliamentary group,” Borisov remarked.
Asked whether he expected for more MPs to leave the parliamentary group of the CEDB, Borisov said: “The more, the better. If there are people, who are dependent on other interests, they should better leave – this is great for the party.”
“I am interested in seeing how the Bulgaria without Censorship party will act. With three members of the parliament, it may even oust the Bulgarian government,” the former prime minister added.
“If they do not oust the government then it will mean that they are the crutch of the Bulgarian Socialist Party (BSP) and the Movement for Rights and Freedoms (MRF), speaking only against the CEDB, and in fact by announcing that their party is centre-right positioned, they back the BSP and the MRF,” Borisov remarked.
Later on during the day Nikolay Barekov sent an official statement to the media.
“As of yesterday the disgraceful deals of the four parties in the Bulgarian parliament speared on the surface,” Nikolay Barekov says in the statement.
“With our independent MPs, the key to the dissolution of the 42nd National Assembly is now in Bulgaria without Censorship’s hands,” Barekov remarked.
“Until yesterday, the ruling and the opposition were dependent on one xenophobic party – Ataka. As of today, you are dependent only on us and on the Bulgarian nation,” the new political leader said further.
“The major deficit found in this parliament is in terms of morals, as well as of clarity about who is part of the mafia and who represents the interests of the Bulgarian citizens,” writes Nikolay Barekov.
“I offer you our votes and our intellectual capacity so as to be able to adopt our draft bill for the Clean Hands Operation over the next couple of months,” Barekov’s official position reads further.
“The three parties of the status quo – the Citizens for European Development of Bulgaria (CEDB), the Bulgarian Socialist Party (BSP) and the Movement for Rights and Freedoms (MRF), together with [Prime Minister] Plamen Oresharski, are given a chance to enter history as the one that supported our idea of purge of the politicians and making it clear who are good and who are bad,” Barekov comments further.

26 February 2014 | 20:22 | FOCUS News Agency
Sofia. Bulgaria without Censorship will secure the parliamentary quorum until the European elections. That is what chairman of Bulgaria without Censorship Nikolai Barekov said for Radio FOCUS. In his words providing the quorum with the votes of the three MPs who support the party depends on the attitude of the lawmakers towards Clean Hands operation. These three MPs have conscience how to vote and who to support, Barekov said further. He specified that the quorum at the Parliament will back the issues concerning the so-called Clean Hands operation alongside with the other project of Bulgaria without Censorship, the so-called business angels, which is aimed at stimulation of business in Bulgaria.

Something may depend on Bulgaria without Censorship only when it comes to a vote of non-confidence or lifting a veto: sociologist

26 February 2014 | 18:20 | FOCUS News Agency
Sofia. The fact that Bulgaria without Censorship has already have three MPs at the parliament has no relation with the development of the political situation despite there is an attempt to pump up the image of Bulgaria without Censorship, as saying that now there is something depending on them. If we must be accurate, the parliamentary logics shows that it is true only when it comes to vote of no confidence or lifting a presidential veto. That is what sociologist Professor Antoniy Galabov said in an interview for FOCUS News Agency .
“All the rest cases, especially this parliament, has hit the bottom to a certain degree, because there were acts passed by 60-70 votes in the beginning, so situation here is many punctures and less plastics,” Prof. Galabov stated.

Within ten days we will submit draft bill at the parliament which envisages the establishment of an independent committee which through the State Agency National Security (SANS) and the National Revenue Agency (NRA) will carry out full inspection in the past 20 years of the incomes and property of all politicians who had been on high administrative positions during the transition period – district governors, ministers, deputy-ministers, chairmen of committees, deputy ministers, presidents, leaders of parliamentary groups etc. Therefore we want the support of your votes without which we can not gather qualified majority of two thirds.

25 February 2014 | 15:49 | FOCUS News Agency
Sofia. This parliament was still-born since the very beginning, no one elected BSP and Movement for Rights and Freedom (MRF) to run the country. It was just stalemate proportion in the figures. As faster the Parliament leaves after the EU elections as better for us. That is what leader of Bulgarian without Censorship Nikolai Barekov said after a meeting with experts from Podkrepa Confederation of Workers, a reporter of FOCUS News Agency announced.
“Our major criticism towards the parliament is that it deals with insults, with racism, with propagation of hatred, but it doesn’t deal with concrete actions. We hope to achieve good results at the European elections – by the moment sociologists give us third place, but I think we will rank higher position,” Barekov stated.
In his words what happens at the Parliament now is nothing else but – 120 far right MPs and 120 far left MPs disaffected with each other, giving offences during all the time.
