Prosecutors Question Ex-PM Borisov on Wiretapping Scandal

Former prime minister and leader of centre-right party GERB Boiko Borisov was summoned by the prosecutor's office for questioning regarding the leaked recordings wiretapped at his home.

It was not an interrogation but a conversation with prosecutors, the Bulgarian National Radio quoted Borisov as saying. The former prime minister expressed hope that the organised criminal group which masterminded the illegal wiretapping would be exposed.

He, however, refused to answer any question related to the nature of the conversation between him, former farm minister Miroslav Naydenov and Sofia city's prosecutor Nikolai Kokinov, which was secretly tapped at his home on April 15 and then leaked to the press.

The conversation, full of vulgarities, centers on a corruption probe against Naydenov, and how Naydenov and Kokinov can escape the scandal.
