EU funds corruption in Bulgaria.

With elections held in Bulgaria, bribe rates for EU projects have risen levels high above imaginable, businessmen complained. “Experts from the Ministry of Economy asked for a fee of 60% from the subsidy to let our high-tech company compete in a tender for money from Brussels,” Mladen Mutafchiiski said. Mr Mutafchiiski is a member of the board of directors in Media Systems company in Stara Zagora. The company presented a project for technical modernization to be financed on Competitiveness operation programme. “Through a third party we were told that we have to pay BGN 600,000 commission if we want to receive the million,” Mutafchiiski said. After it was clear the state employees had no chance whatsoever to receive the money, the company was simply thrown out of the contest.
