Bulgaria's Interior Minister Tsvetan Tsvetanov has accused a mystery magistrate of leaking classified data for upcoming special police operations to suspects.
Tsvetanov referred in particular to two special police operations targeting financial crimes that were staged recently but refused to reveal the identity of the alleged corrupt judiciary official.
He said he sent a letter to Bulgaria's acting Chief Prosecutor Boyko Naydenov asking for a probe into certain investigations as well as into the work of the suspected corrupt magistrate.
In his words, the suspects that were targeted in the special operations of the Interior Ministry had a working lunch with the magistrate in question after which they deleted crucial data from their computers, and removed wanted paperwork from their offices.
