Censorship by Glasove (Yavor Dachkov)
Yavor Dachkov is the only Bulgarian journalist who dared take an extensive interview from me in 2015. He contacted me again in 2019 with the idea of taking an interview for a television. Since the television station refused to air the interview, Dachkov decided to upload it to YouTube and publish a transcript on his Glasove (Voices) website. The interview attracted unprecedented interest. Dachkov sought me out again for interviews in 2020 and 2021.
At the beginning of 2022, friends of mine informed me that they could not find Dachkov’s last interview with me, in which I explained that I suspected that there was a connection between ITN and Delyan Peevski. At first I thought this was just an accident. When I checked the website of Glasove, however, I found out that the 2020 and 2021 interviews with me had been taken down. In June 2022, Dachkov invited me for a new interview – this is when I asked him to restore the deleted interviews on his websiite. Dachkov refused.
Regardless of the reasons for Dachkov´s behavior – if you take look at the Glasove website, you will see their new political values – what happened is an illustration of censorship and unethical behavior by a journalist. Since there are always traces on the Internet, we were able to restore the deleted interviews on my website.
