"What is said - I cannot define them in legal form, but in human form they are nonsense".

One of his deputies, as well as the former head of Bulgargaz Lyudmil Yotsov, were also accused.

The reason - damage caused to the state gas supplier in the amount of over BGN 88 million. The three have a restraining order - "signature".
