Bulgaria had only indirect evidences indicating Hezbollah, the Lebanese Islamist militant group, involved in the deadly blast on a tourist bus at Burgas Airport last July.
Bulgarian Interior Minister Tsvetan Tsvetanov made the remarks on Thursday, diverging his saying on Tuesday that "a reasonable assumption can be made that two of the persons, involved in the terrorist attack at Burgas Airport were members of the militant wing of Hezbollah," adding that their forged driving licenses were printed in Lebanon.
Tsvetanov said on Thursday that the criminal suspects’ driving licenses were forged in Lebanon.
"There are also other indirect evidences that prove the involvement of the militant wing of Hezbollah," Tsvetanov added.
Meanwhile, Bulgaria’s Prosecutor General Sotir Tsatsarov told reporters that the assertion of Hezbollah involvement was based on objective data, but at this stage, the case was not ready for submission to the Court with an indictment.
Many operational data had yet to be formalized, Tsatsarov said.
