SOFIA, July 15 (Xinhua) -- Bulgaria's State Agency for National Security (SANS) expelled 29 people involved in terrorist organization activities last year, according to its annual report released here on Friday.
According to the report, the terrorist threat for Bulgaria was high in 2015, although during this period SANS did not acquire concrete information about any planned or prepared terrorist acts against targets in the country or against Bulgarian interests abroad.
However, there is a possibility of planned terrorist acts in the country or the use of its territory as a logistics base for the preparation of terrorist attacks against foreign interests, the report said.
The operation of the agency's Financial Intelligence Directorate played a key role in combating money laundering and terrorist financing, the report also said.
In 2015, SANS informed the authorities about 720 cases of suspicious transactions totaling 1.33 billion euros (some 1.48 billion U.S. dollars), a 63-percent increase from 2014, the report said.
