The new members are Vasil Rizov, who will be Deputy Chair of DKSI, Petar Petrov, and Ivan Ivanov.
One of the cases, revealed by Atanasov, who reminded that DKSI is the body granting access to classified information, based on investigation of the National Agency for State Security (DANS), involves Emil Valev, who in 2004, just after Bulgaria joined NATO, was nominated to become the country's first NATO Ambassador.
At the time, DKSI in agreement with the NATO security services, refused to grant Valev, who has been a diplomat since the Communist regime, access to classified information - an incident stirring quite a scandal and embarrassment for Bulgaria and resulting in Valev's failed nomination.
Sofia City Prosecutor Nikolai Kokinov has announced this development on Thursday He explained that the originally designated experts, also from the DKSI, would not produce the report that should determine whether the lost reports of DANS represented a state secret, and whether national security had been violated.
Tsveta Markova, the head of DKSI, had said that both initially appointed experts had justifiable reasons for not completing the task they were appointed to work on.
