Why is "Lev Ins" suing "Mediapool" for 1 million levs?

"This claim of 1 million levs, for which the insurance company claims that it assesses the possible damage from this publication if it goes to court and if a court decides to confirm, means that Mediapool will disappear. This amount exceeds the revenues of the publication.

This was stated by the editor in chief of Mediapool, Stoyana Georgieva, in the show "Who's Talking?" on Darik Radio.

It is worth reminding that on Wednesday it became clear the insurance company "Lev Ins" has filed a claim in Sofia City Court against Mediapool for 1 million BGN, with the motive that it felt affected by an information material from September 27, 2022, which practically quotes and retells the transcript of a Council of Ministers meeting.

She described the amount as shocking and unprecedented. The journalist expressed the opinion that the purpose of the whole exercise is to stress and intimidate not only one media, but all other media, including major television channels.

"In my opinion, all limits of any decency have already been exceeded here. The goal is not to crush a journalist or a media. We are talking here about crushing journalism as a whole. If corporate power behaves in such a way that any mention of a problem that is not pleasant or desirable for a particular company hits it and in this way delivers a blow to silence journalists, then a public debate in this country would be deemed impossible," theeditor of Mediapool said.

On Wednesday, lawyer Alexander Kashamov commented that this is another SLAPP case in Bulgaria, and with a very serious "chilling effect." Currently, another recent case against Mediapool filed by Judge Svetlin Mihaylov is registered in the official platform of the Council of Europe for SLAPP cases.

"And this turned out to be vital in the hours following the full-scale Russian invasion last year. Putin believed he would reach Kyiv in three days. What a huge strategic mistake. Ukraine's resistance shook the world. But it is also due to the professionalism of the Ukrainian soldiers, many of whom were trained by Canada. I cannot overstate this - Canada saved Ukraine.
