Bulgarian authorities arrested seven people and seized a major haul of weapons and ammunition that would have been enough to "arm two platoons" in a series of operations over five days, the head of the police's Directorate for Combating Organized Crime, GDCOD, Ivaylo Spiridonov, said on Wednesday, showcasing piles of guns and ammunition.
The government hired Mitko Simeonov for the Director of the Bulgarian Privatization Agency and Post-Privatisation Control (PAPC), reported BGNES.
Simeonov who was the deputy director of the Agency is now the new director, after Emil Karanikolov became Minister of Economy.
As a new deputy director is appointed Petar Petrov who was a member of PAPC from 2010 to 2013.
A Plovdiv-based plant has manufactured 20 truck-mounted aerial platforms to be delivered to the North Atlantic Treaty Organization (NATO).
The trucks are being loaded onto military vehicles to be shipped to the respective overseas destinations, according to Petar Petrov, Executive Director of Balkankar Record.
