  • [01] State offers one-mln-euro reward in Kuneva acid attack case

    (ANA-MPA) -- The government announced a reward of one million euros for information leading to the arrest of the assailants involved in the acid attack on former office cleaners' unionist Konstantina Kuneva a year ago, an attack that left the Bulgarian national seriously disabled and disfigured.

    According to a joint ministerial decision, the reward will be given for any leads that will help in the arrest of the culprits.

    The attack on Kuneva, who is still hospitalised with grave health problems, occurred 18 minutes after midnight on Dec. 23, 2008 in the Athens district of Petralona. Kuneva had been an organiser in an Attica-area cleaners' union.

    Full anonymity for informants is guaranteed, authorities said.
