Bulgaria commits to actively investigating the link between corruption and organised crime.

Profits from public contracts awarded to companies linked to organised crime are used to finance VAT fraud schemes or the illicit trade in excise tax goods or drugs. Seizing the profits of organised criminals and denying access to public contracts of their front companies is key to tackling corruption.
