  Prosecutors charge head of military intelligence and produces public scandal. Why? Head of military intelligence Plamen Angelov The military intelligence agency is one of the most sensitive intelligence agencies, operating not only with state secrets but also with those of its allies. The military intelligence is also the body, which compiles all the information about the network of human intelligence agents – both foreign and domestic – around the world. The so-called Defense Information Service is the primary Bulgarian body working with NATO on security, deface, information exchange, etc. The agency safeguards some of the most delicate and valuable secrets of the state and its allies and it is easy to understand why it is just as important not to draw too much attention to it, and especially not to center the consecutive prosecutor scandal on it. The military prosecution charged the head of the military intelligence and his predecessor this week with granting illegitimate access to top secret information. The prosecutors, just as prosecutors usually do in Bulgaria, made a spectacle of the charges. They issued a press release, announcing the charges in what has become their traditional tone: loudmouthed accusations, lack of concrete facts, an open and rather threatening end. Most charges, which have come about in this matter later collapse in court as the case is thin at best. But these stunts are hardly aligned with the purpose of the justice process. Instead they seek to weaken their targets through elaborate smear campaigns. This might seem ineffective and transparent but, in a state, which has the majority of print and electronic media ready to repeat any talking point those in power produce, it is a potent tool. It is important to bear this context in mind and take the prosecutors’ actions, especially those it takes special care to put at the top of the news, with a grain of salt. According to the charges the military intelligence head, Plamen Angelov and his predecessor, Svetoslav Daskalov had issued over 500 approvals for access to classified information illegally. But the interesting thing here is that the alleged illegality of the approvals is not due to being issued without basis or in some conjunction based on substance. Instead, the reason the prosecutors have filed these charges is because the approvals were not signed by the head of the organization but instead by their deputies. This is very peculiar on at least two levels, and raises much concern given the already mentioned inclination of prosecutors to open justice proceedings with ulterior motives. First, if this is a legal breach, and has been going on systematically since 2016, why is this coming up only now? Officially, the prosecutors are acting on information, provided by the State Agency for National Security. But had they not known about it before? As technicalities go, this is quite an obvious one and this alone raises ..
