Bulgaria's PM, Boyko Borisov, vowed Wednesday that the new cabinet would hunt and prosecute the "Witches".
The statement came as response to the Tuesday accusations on the part of his predecessor as Prime Minister and Socialist Party leader, Sergey Stanishev, that the ruling Citizens for European Development of Bulgaria (GERB) party was engaged in a mass witch-hunt at all levels.
According to Borisov, Stanishev himself has admitted that his ministers are witches, sucking blood by their numerous shady deals.
"There is a witch-hunter and witches. In Bulgarian folklore, witches are a symbol of the evil. They steal, deceive, spread intrigue," Borisov said.
Borisov pointed out several examples such as the land swaps, the now infamous deal with the golden printers at the Interior Ministry and several, incredibly high by the Bulgarian measure, salaries of people close to the former government.
The PM revealed that the former Executive Director of "Information Services", Ivo Nikolov, had an annual income of BGN 104,423 for 2008. His December and May salaries had been nearly BGN 14,000 while his average monthly salary had been between BGN 7,000 and 9,000.
Tsvetanka Popova, Head of Human Resources at the same company, has received an annual salary of BGN 70,000 with a monthly salary between BGN 7,000 and 11,000.
