Bulgarian ambassador reportedly among former communist informers

Almost half of Bulgaria’s ambassadors and consuls, including the current envoys to Romania, Turkey and Greece, provided information to communist secret services before the fall of the regime in 1990, according to data released in Sofia by the committee overseeing secret records, Novinite reported. It published on the internet the names of 192 leading diplomats who were active for the notorious Committee for State Security (DS), including Bulgaria’s current ambassadors to European Union countries such as Germany, Britain, Italy, Spain and Portugal. The committee had probed 462 former and current Bulgarian ambassadors, consuls and the deputies at diplomatic missions for potential collaboration with communist secret services.
The list includes current Ambassador to Romania Valentin Radomirski, according to Mediafax. It also includes representatives in Moscow, Geneva, Beijing, Tokyo, at the Vatican and the United Nations. After the list was released, Bulgarian PM Boiko Borisov said all diplomats who collaborated with the former communist secret services should be dismissed.
