Ivan Kostov on his off the cuff comment is one politician that most call an idiot who puts his nose into things he has no idea about, this one more instance. At the end of the day it is not clear whether Sertov has resigned and just rumour right now although it was reported as so on Bulgarian National Television News last night.
Petko Sertov, head of Bulgaria's State Agency for National Security (SANS) handed in his resignation, Bulgarian National Radio (BNR) said, quoting sources that requested anonymity.
It was not clear yet, whether his resignation would be accepted, BNR said.
Spokesperson for SANS, Zoya Dimitrova, denied that Sertov had handed in his resignation, though she did confirm he had a meeting with Prime Minister Boiko Borissov, Bulgarian broadcaster Vesti said.
The two had discussed SANS's half-year report, Dimitrova said.
Blue Coaltion leader and head of the SANS control committee in Parliament, Ivan Kostov had said that Sertov had been refused a work-trip to the US because the American partners were said to have lost faith in Sertov.
"If Kostov knew the facts around this case, I am confident he would change his opinion," Dimitrova was quoted by Vesti as saying.Source: www.sofiaecho.com/2009
