Cabinet gives State Agency for National Security additional 500 000 leva

Bulgaria’s Cabinet approved on September 30 additional spending of 500 000 leva (about 256 000 euro) for the State Agency for National Security (SANS), a government media statement said.

Part of the money is to be used for an investment project for essential measures to upgrade and secure the agency’s building.

The rest of the money is to be spent on crisis management activities in connection with the increased migratory pressure on Bulgaria, the statement said.

The money will be made available by restructuring costs and transfers from the 2015 national Budget, the government said.
