Bulgarian National Security Agency Undercover Regulations Lifted

Agents of the Bulgarian State Agency “National Security” (DANS) will be able to infiltrate businesses and institutions without the knowledge of their owners and managers. The law was proposed in May 2018 and it’s now a reality.

Dnevnik.bg reported on the development, stating that the change in regulations was approved by the Ministry Council. The only difference with the initial proposition is that the spies wouldn’t be able to infiltrate law firms. Dnevnik states that the final order is: “In carrying out their service duties, the employees of the agency can take undercover positions in state administration, judicial persons, in citizens companies and other persons practicing freelance professions, with the exception of lawyers.”

Up until now, in order for an agent to go undercover, DANS had to have the permission of the firm’s manager or owner. In effect, the State Agency “National Security” has the legal rights to infiltrate almost every organization, business, political party, or media freely, with the small exception of law firms.

The reported reason for this change is to increase national security.
