This is quite serious stuff, isn't it? If it's true, than Danailov has a lot of explaining to do. If it isn't, Paulson does. Right?
So let's ask the Danailov campaign.
Email, Saturday 22 February, 11.01 am:
Dear Mr Hristov
Sorry to bother you.
I write about chess and I have a question for Mr Danailov.
Andrew Paulson alleges that Mr Danailov:
spent six months in jail for arms dealing (materiel stolen from the Bulgarian army)
Can you confirm that Mr Paulson's allegation is false? Will Mr Danailov issue a statement confirming that it is false?
Huesca province, Spain
If a reply arrives, we'll be sure to let you know. If it doesn't, we're sure we can rely on the curiosity of the chess press to follow this matter up.
