Sup. Board Chair Martin Roman of CEZ said his biggest disappointment in terms of CEZ’s troubled foreign investments is how little the EU is able and prepared to defend weaker EU members, such as the CR.

If a French company had such problems, he said, EU commissioners would be making regular visits there.

Spokeswoman Pulpanova said CEZ hasn’t received official notification from prosecutors. “We are totally convinced that we follow all Bulgarian, EU rules,” Pulpanova says. /Sligthly negative, the regulator is to make its decision on April 16. We think more important to CEZ’s share price than the potential loss in Bulgaria is the drop in the electricity price/
