Bulgarian media mogul Lyubomir Pavlov has been pressured personally by Prime Minister, Boyko Borisov, to sell his two high-circulation dailies to the notorious New Bulgarian Media Group.
According to the site for investigative journalism Bivol.bg, citing their own, undisclosed, but trustworthy sources, Borisov told Pavlov that he had a choice between selling the newspapers and going to prison.
Bivol notes that Pavlov and his partner Ognyan Donev are BGN 5 M short in funds to maintain the normal publishing of the papers and even though the amount is relatively modest, no Bulgarian investor is showing interest over fears they could enrage the PM.
