The Australian (AFP), January 23, 2012: The ghost of communism has resurfaced in Bulgaria, with 11 of the country's 15 top bishops exposed as former secret police agents, shaking the Bulgarian Orthodox Church and its image just as it readies to choose a new patriarch. A list published by the parliamentary archives committee has singled out 97-year-old Patriarch Maxim and three other bishops as the only members of the church's top authority, the Holy Synod, not to have collaborated. The other 11 were listed as agents of the most notorious part of the Darzhavna Sigurnost, the political police who spied on people for suspected "anti-communist behaviour". The archives law does not entail any legal consequences for the former agents, but Prime Minister Boyko Borisov was quick to declare himself shocked - Bulgarian bishops were communist spies
