The Bulgarian Prosecution will officially press charges against former Deputy Chair of Parliament, Hristo Biserov, for financial and tax crimes on Friday.

At the beginning of the month, Biserov surprisingly resigned from his post as Deputy Chair of Parliament and the liberal Movement for Rights and Freedoms (DPS).

Later, the Sofia City Prosecutor’s Office initiated a probe against him for alleged financial and tax crimes.

It is believed that foreign special services notified the Bulgarian State Agency for National Security (DANS) over suspicious transactions from Biserov’s Swiss bank account to his stepson Ivaylo Glavnikov in Macedonia.

Initial reports suggested Biserov had fled the country to Italy, but on Wednesday he was seen outside his home in Sofia.

The Biserov case flared heated debates in Parliament and further exacerbated the negative sentiments among the anti-government protesters.
