Iskra Fidosova, a former key lawmaker of Bulgaria’s center-right GERB party, is not currently under investigation for money laundering, prosecutors have told local media.
On Thursday, the Bulgarian Legion "Anti-Mafia" stated that the investigation had been launched against Fidosova in the organized crime unit of the Supreme Prosecutor’s Office of Cassation.
However, prosecutors have now said that the former MP is not under investigation.
They noted that officials are currently “verifying the allegations” against Fidosova, which does not mean that she is investigated.
The anti-mafia NGO also claimed on Thursday that former Interior Minister Tsvetan Tsvetanov (2009-2013) is being investigated for allegedly attempting to obstruct the criminal investigation into Fidosova’s money laundering case.
In 2007, Fidosova received BGN 150 000 under a property rent contract from Titan 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.
