Bulgaria"s former Finance Minister, Plamen Oresharski, voiced Wednesday his bewilderment over the refusal of the National Audit Office to certify the Council of Ministers' 2008 fiscal report.

The National Audit Office submitted Tuesday the refusal to Prime Minister, Boyko Borisov, citing as reason the fact the budget and the extra budgetary accounts did not represent a true reflection of the property and the financial state of the Council of Ministers.

“The Audit Office obviously did an audit of their own audit. It is troublesome that a team of the Audit Office previously certified the above said audit without objection. It is quite interesting what changed in a few months in order to reach a totally different conclusion, Oresharski, who served as Finance Minister in the previous cabinet led by Socialist Prime Minister, Sergey Stanishev, stated Wednesday.

The Audit Office reported Tuesday they had discovered evidence that is in stark contradiction with the previous opinion of the National Audit Office Department Head, Erdzhan Alkova, that the annual fiscal account of the Council of Ministers for 2008 is certifiable without objection,

For this reason, the Director of the Audit Office, Valeri Dimitrov, issued an order to reassign Alkova and dismiss her from her current post.
