The newly appointed Chairman of Bulgaria’s National Audit Office Tsvetan Tsvetkov has backed a suggestion to set up a new body specifically charged with looking into the wealth of politicians.

In an interview with BNR radio Tsvetkov said on Sunday a change to existing legislation might be needed to enable inspection of the sources of funds and properties owned by politicians.

It is outside the powers of the National Audit Office now to check whether politicians own or use properties registered in someone else’s name, or stay at posh hotels while on trips abroad.

“Maybe a specialized body should be set up as is the case in Romania, for example,” said Tsvetkov.
