Forty-seven children staying at a holiday camp in the Bulgarian Black Sea resort of Obzor have sought medical attention for suspected food poisoning, Bulgarian National Television said on July 15 2011.

The children have a gastrointestinal disorder, fever and vomiting, Agency for Food Safety director Yordan Voinov said.

Agency inspectors inspected conditions at the children’s camp in Obzor and ordered the destruction of food.

Currently, about 700 Russian children are holidaying at the resort town, Bulgarian National Television said.

Meanwhile, Regional Ministry authorities have announced the results of unannounced spot checks at Black Sea beaches at the end of June and beginning of July.

Eighty-six beaches that were operated by concession-holders or otherwise had been rented out were checked.

The main shortcomings were there being fewer lifeguards than specified in the concession contracts, as well as breaches of the amount of space set aside for free-of-charge access.

Described as „completely unprepared“ for the reason were the beaches of Sozopol West and Byala 1 and 4. Beaches at Rusalka, Sunny Beach and Sozopol were found to have less free-of-charge space than permitted.

Also found to have fewer lifeguards than required were the beaches at Ahtopol North, Kavatsite and Obzor.

City Center Sofia, the first shopping mall to open in the Bulgarian capital in 2006, faced bankruptcy after its owner had difficulties servicing its loans, Bulgarian mass-circulation daily Trud reported.US real estate investment management firm Heitman, which bought the mall in 2008 for a reported figure of 101.5 million euro, was in breach of loan covenants as of December 2010, the newspaper said, quoting an Ernst&Young auditing report.

UniCredit Bank Austria could call the 118.6 million leva loans at any time, repossessing the mall if Heitman failed to pay. Despite its prime location on the corner of Arsenalski and Cherni Vruh boulevards in Sofia, next to the Hilton, last year the revenue from rent was down by 12.5 per cent and the shopping mall ended the year with a loss of 729 000 leva, compared to a profit of 1.28 million leva a year earlier, Trud said.

City Center Sofia was the first shopping mall to feel the brunt of recession and the drop in household consumption, courting controversy in 2009 when tenants complained that the mall’s management increased rents. A second row followed in 2010, when more tenants left the premises, the newspaper said.

Reportedly, Heitman was in negotiations with the bank to rectify the breach of covenant, but the talks were yet to yield a result at the time the auditing report was concluded on May 25. Contacted by the newspaper, Heitman was unavailable for comment before Trud went to print.

Specifically, the loan conditions stipulate that the mall’s owners have to maintain a rent revenue of at least 15 per cent higher than the loan repayment amounts. Furthermore, the loan’s principal should not be higher than 75 per cent of the mall’s valuation – with the continued slide in property valuations in Bulgaria, Heitman is now in breach, the daily said, quoting the Ernst&Young report.

The loans had been taken out by the mall’s previous owner, private equity investment firm Equest, which had acquired City Center Sofia in 2006 for 94 million euro.
