Chief prosecutor: Suspect in Skripal case was in Bulgaria during Emilian Gebrev’s poisoning11 February 2019 | 12:41 | FOCUS News Agency
“After the resumption of the investigation into the Gebrev case, all British and European agencies have been informed. They have full access to all materials in the case and all investigative actions. A European Investigation Order was sent to the UK along with letters to provide a legal basis for collaboration between the Bulgarian and British authorities. So any insinuations about inaction within the investigation and neglect on the part of the prosecutor’s office are not true,” Tsatsarov said.
He said two of the suspects in the Scripal case had not visited Bulgaria in the last 10 years, but the third one, Sergey Fedotov, was in Bulgaria three times in 2015 – February 5-22, April 24-28 and May 23-29. One of the visits coincides with Gebrev’s poisoning. “The Ministry of Interior and the State Agency for National Security were working to establish his route and all moments of his stay on Bulgarian territory were established. Since the very beginning on October 11, 2018, a lot of actions have been underway in full coordination between the Bulgarian and British partners,” the chief prosecutor said.
