This is further evidence that the charges of corruption against the federation are groundless, part of a smear campaign aimed at damaging of the good name of BUL Chess Fed and its leadership and serving of foreign interests. It is clear that this smear campaign is led by people, who want to destroy the political chess career of the President Silvio Danailov, who has remained the only real opposition of FIDE and who will run for FIDE Presidency during the upcoming FIDE elections.

Practically, these contrived charges work directly against the Bulgarian chess and its good and sustainable development.

This decision also supports the correctness of the motives of the Management Board of the Bulgarian Chess Federation, which at its meeting, held on 5th of June, 2015, deprived “of their racing, referee, organizational, club and coaching rights in the system of the Bulgarian Chess Federation the above mentioned persons as follows: Metodi Stoynev – for a period of 3 years, Kiril Georgiev – for a period of 3 years, Simeon Stoichkov – for a period of 5 years (due to re exclusion from the system of the Bulgarian Chess Federation).”, because of their “public deliberate, targeted and coordinated actions and statements aimed at the damaging of the reputation of the Bulgarian Chess Federation, sabotaging of its activities and discrediting of its leadership, by announcements in the public space of false, unproved and defamatory allegations for corruption and misuse (during press conference, held on 28th of May, 2015 in the Press Club of the Bulgarian News Agency, in the social networks, etc.) as well as damaging of the reputation, using slanders and lies, of the Bulgarian Minister of Youth and Sports, Ministry of Youth and Sports and its experts…”

We would like to remind that two independent audits of Bulgarian Chess Federation made by the Inspectorate of the Bulgarian Ministry of Youth and Sports did not find any evidences of corruption or violations.
