Watchdog sacked

6 March 2001

Other reasons included interference in the work of the Bulgarian Atomic Energy Committee's (BAEC's) inspection for safe usage of atomic energy.

The deputy chairman of BAEC, Robert Popits, was appointed to replace Kaschiev.

In September 2000, environment minister Evdokia Maneva demanded Kaschiev's resignation over what she called wrong information of increased radiation after an incident at Kozloduy.

Maneva said the national system, monitoring the territory of the whole country and the plant's territory, had not shown increased radiation.
