A couple of weeks ago, acting Varna Regional Prosecutor Vladislava Panayotova said that her prosecution office had instituted pre-trial proceedings over 127 containers of waste from Italy found at the Port of Varna West.

The containers had arrived on October 9, 2019, and waste they carried was visibly different from what was declared in the import documents.

The shipment was left at the port for 90-day temporary storage.

Shortly later, prosecutors launched a probe after 20 containers of waste from Italy were found at the port of Bourgas, and it turned out it had been there since early September 2019.
