Many problems lie ahead for Bulgaria and business in our country after the country’s inclusion in the gray list of countries where money is laundered to finance terrorism. We are there alongside countries like North Korea, Iran and Myanmar.
“Since we can’t do our work ourselves, it’s better to have someone come along and beat us with a stick to get something done.
In general, the inclusion of Bulgaria in the gray list for the fight against money laundering and the financing of terrorism is negative news that will have many economic, and especially – financial consequences.
Countries that have fallen into the gray and especially the black list have serious economic problems related to payments, with the reduction of foreign investments”. This was stated by the economist Vladimir Sirkarov in the program “Your Day” on NOVA NEWS on the occasion of the inclusion of our country in the gray list of countries related to money laundering.
He gave an example that transactions with Bulgaria can no longer be made from South Korea, because the system there does not accept payment with countries that are on a similar list.
For the director of the “Security” program, CID Atanas Rusev, the inclusion of our country in this list is old news. He recalled that in June a report was issued to the Council of Europe where the issue was described. The blacklist includes North Korea, Iran and Myanmar, he added, and said that such inclusion of our country could cause us problems with our country’s entry into Schengen. According to Rusev, we are on the periphery of possible money laundering flows.
