А three-member session of Supreme Administration Court (SAC) launched on December 27 the case against nominating Viva Ventures buyer of BTC. The case was initiated by the Prosecutors' Office which claims that the deal should be announced insignificant or the court should cancel the choice of Privatisation Agency (PA) of a buyer. The Bulgarian lawyer of Viva Ventures on his turn insisted on continuation of the deal as in his words the privatisation procedure had so far been perfect. Within a month SAC is expected to rule out. The Government authorized the Minister of Regional Development and Public Works Valentin Tserovsky to carry out the negotiations with the Turkish Government on updating the agreement between Bulgaria and Turkey, dating back to November 4, 1998. The document ties up the construction of hydroenergy cascade Gorna Arda and highway Maritza from Orizovo to Kapitan Andreevo with the deal for export of electricity. Another clause of the agreement permits to Turkish firms to participate in the execution of both projects. The present decision of the Council of Ministers states that the Bulgarian side will insist on taking out the highway Orizovo-Kapitan ANdreevo from the agreement as construction works have still not been started. An alliance of the two Turkish firms Dogus Insaat ve Ticaret A.S and Eko Insaat ve Ticaret Ltd.STI is taking over the construction works on highway Trakia between Karnobat and Bourgas. The contract is valued to EUR45.844MN. The Executive Director of the Israeli firm Ashtrom Joseph Gollan announced he would claim against the decision of the Construction Ministry.
