Iskra Fidosova, a former key lawmaker of the center-right Bulgarian GERB party, is currently investigated for money laundering, according to an NGO.

The Bulgarian Legion "Anti-Mafia" has cited Chief Prosecutor Sotir Tsatsarov as saying that the investigation has been launched in the organized crime unit of the Supreme Prosecutor’s Office of Cassation.

Former Interior Minister Tsvetan Tsvetanov (2009-2013) is also investigated, according to the NGO. He allegedly attempted to obstruct the criminal investigation into Fidosova’s money laundering case.

The report says that Tsvetanov may face one to six years in prison if proven guilty, according to the BGNES news agency.

In 2007, Fidosova received BGN 150 000 under a property rent contract from Titas AS, one of the companies that handles Sofia's garbage disposal.

The payment invoice showing that Fidosova received the sum was first made public by the conservative Law, Order and Justice party back in 2011.

The former GERB MP allegedly hid the transaction in her conflict of interests declaration.
