Coast Centre in Bourgas Joins Fight against Fuel Smuggling

The coast centre in Bourgas will help fighting fuel smuggling, Prime Minister Boyko Borissov said at its opening on Saturday.
The investment of 20 million leva means that ships which transfer petrol or ship fuel from one to the other at sea cannot go unnoticed, said Borissov.
A similar facility will open in the Black Sea city of Varna next Saturday, to be followed by a location on the Danube River later on. It becomes practically impossible for ships to hide. If a ship disables its transponders, then it must have sunk and the Border Police Service, the Customs Agency and all other systems will rush to the site to check what the matter is.
Borissov was accompanied by Transport Minister Ivaylo Moskovski, Environment Minister Ivelina Vassileva, Regional Development Minister Liliyana Pavlova and Bourgas Mayor Dimiter Nikolov.
