Bulgaria's prosecutor general has ordered the relevant authorities to check a tip-off against businessman Tsvetan Vasilev and politicians Delyan Peevski and Nikolay Barekov submitted by a local alliance of citizen activists, the Prosecutor General’s Office said.

A day earlier local media reported that the Bulgarian Protest Network has formally asked the Prosecutor General’s Office to investigate Vasilev, Peevski and Barekov on suspicions of general crimes.

The tip sent by the organisation to the prosecuting magistracy concerns claims for alleged tax crimes and other infractions committed by Peevski, MP of the ethnic Turks' Movement for Rights and Freedoms,Vasilev, who is indirect owner of Corporate Commercial Bank, and Barekov, leader of the Bulgaria Without Censorship party, as well as violations of the tax laws and murky sources of funding from trade companies, the prosecutor's office said in a statement. During the course of the check, the prosecuting magistracy will request information from the National Audit Office, the National Revenue Agency, the interior ministry, the State Agency for National Security, the State Commission on Information Security, the Registry Agency, the Bulgarian National Bank, and other bodies, it added.
