The Ministry of Finance has published a list of 34 companies that fall or may fall within the scope of sanctions imposed last week by the Office of Foreign Assets Control of the U.S. Department of the Treasury on Bulgarian individuals and legal entities under the Magnitsky Act.
The companies are linked to sanctioned businessmen Vasil Bozhkov and Delyan Peevski. 18 of them are registered in Bulgaria, but some of them don’t exist anymore. The other companies are in the EU and offshore zones.
Delyan Peevski's name also appears in a company registered in the USA. The list does not include companies related to the third Bulgarian citizen sanctioned by the "Magnitsky Act" - Ilko Zhelyazkov, BNR reporter Marta Mladenova has informed.
