site.btaUPDATED Kiril Petkov Says Politicians from Second Largest Parliamentary Group Were Wiretapped
Continue the Change leader Kiril Petkov told reporters on Thursday evening that an active measure was underway against the Continue the Change - Democratic Bulgaria (CC-DB) coalition and the attempts to form a regular government. He talked about eavesdropping on politicians from both parties during working meetings in Parliament and at meetings of the CC's National and Executive Councils in the party's offices.
"The wide range points to the use of wiretapping in our headquarters and in the National Assembly building, excerpts from video chats and phones. This was done by the services and the deep state to destabilize and derail the talks on cabinet formation," Petkov said.
"The services know that if a government is formed, we will change their leaderships and will carry out deep reforms aimed to root out the captured people, staff members and departments," he also said. Likewise, the prosecution service knows that if the latest legislative amendments are adopted, it may be "purged of the deep backstage".
"The services and the prosecution service have realized that either we will manage to reform them, or they will defeat us and Bulgaria will remain a captured state," he commented.
GERB-UDF and CC-DB are attempting to form a regular government on a rotating basis.
