Govt to Probe Into Offshore Accounts of Bulgarians in Cyprus
Thursday, 01 January 1970
Finance Minister Petar Chobanov has pledged to request information about offshore accounts of Bulgarian citizens from his Cypriot counterpart, the Sofia News Agency (novinite.com) reported on Wednesday.
Chobanov presented his plans in parliament after Sergei Stanishev, the leader of the Bulgarian Socialist Party (BSP), insisted that the state had to investigate Bulgarians' assets in the tax haven.
"This is an ongoing discussion in Europe which has not been solved yet, steps are being taken in connection with it, and we shall not differ from European practices," Bulgaria's Finance Minister declared.
