Velislav Minekov: Significant damage has been caused to the Ministry of Culture

"Great damage has been caused to Bulgaria’s Ministry of Culture", this country‘s caretaker Minister of Culture Professor Velislav Minekov said in an interview for the Bulgarian National Radio. The list of violations includes the missing EUR 4.5 million allotted for repair of the Largo in Sofia and the Ministry of Culture is to refer the case to the European Public Prosecutor's Office. According to Minister Minekov, the Ministry of Culture "will soon run out of money".

“We may have to pay for misuse of EU funding with money from the ministry’s budget”. Velislav Minekov also said that one of his main tasks is to review the existing legislation and the proposals for amendments to the Cultural Heritage Act, the Copyrights Act and the Radio and Television Act. Next week, the Bulgarian Ministry of Culture will organize a discussion on the state and the media.
