Bulgarian Finance Minister Vladislav Goranov confirmed on Tuesday that hackers have stolen many Bulgarians' personal financial data by breaking into the country's electronic tax refund system.
Goranov insisted the data stolen does not include classified information and does not "constitute a threat to financial security".
On July 8, Prime Minister Boyko Borissov met with the owners of Bulgaria's top three football clubs Ludogorets, CSKA-Sofia and Levski to discuss alleged pressure on referees. The meeting was also attended by Interior Minister Mladen Marinov, Prosecutor General Sotir Tsatsarov and Bulgarian Football Union (BFU) President Borislav Mihailov, reports BNT.
Police officers and prison guards are planning to stage a protest. It will be held outside the Council of Ministers on 5 July, when the Ministry of Interior will mark 140 years since its establishment. The protest is supported by the Bulgarian Doctors' Union and Podkrepa trade union. The main demand is decent pay for night work, reports BNT.
The changing operational situation imposes the necessity of creating anti-terror centres in this country, Interior Minister Mladen Marinov said, reports BNT.
Anti-terror centres are necessary, Marinov added, in order to concentrate and process information so that it can become most easily accessible and thus the actions taken be synchronized by all the institutions.
