Adviser to a Bulgarian PM leaked Classified Information to a citizen of North Macedonia

It has been established that an adviser to a Bulgarian Prime Minister coordinated the position of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs with a Macedonian citizen during the negotiation process of the Republic of North Macedonia with the EU. This was announced by the chief of the State Agency for National Security (SANS) Plamen Tonchev during the hearing of the heads of services in the plenary hall.

The chairman of SANS refused to name the prime minister's adviser. Tonchev added that it was found that information had been deleted from the employee's computer, against whom pre-trial proceedings had been initiated, which SANS subsequently restored.
