Parliament Declassifies Credit Millionaire Records

Bulgarian Parliament passed amendments allowing the Dossier Commission to probe on records of local credit millionaires and to examine them for links to the communist-era secret services.

The amendments to the bill for access and disclosure of documents of Bulgarian citizens affiliated to the State Security were adopted with 91 MPs voting in favour, one abstaining and none against, the Parliament said on Wednesday.

The proposal for the check-ups on Bulgarians who got rich quickly through dubious financial transactions in the post-communist transition was submitted by the centre-right Blue Coalition.

Subject to the audit will be sole proprietors, managers and members of management or supervisory bodies of companies in the late 1980s and 1990s which received loans that which were not serviced afterwards. The Dossier Commission's chairman, Evtim Kostadinov, said that more than 10,500 companies are to be inspected, according to a list compiled by the National Bank in 1997.
