Bulgarian General Prosecutor, Boris Velcev declared on Tuesday in an interview for the Bulgarian national radio that there are Bulgarians that get millions of euro out of money laundering in other countries.

Such cases were registered also in Bulgaria but the operations are on a small scale locally, compared to other countries, added Velcev, as quoted by Novinite.com.

The General Prosecutor confirmed once again the existence of various powerful criminal networks that are supervised and investigated by local authorities.

Bulgarian authorities have managed to eradicate some of the biggest criminal networks.

Up to now, the Bulgarian courts issued nine new "guilty" sentences for money laundering accusations out of which eight have already been applied.
