Bulgaria joined the international operation against OneCoin

In a statement on January 19, the office said that it is cooperating with officials in Germany as well as with representatives of international groups Eurojust and Europol for the OneCoin investigation. Germany has been conducting a study of OneCoin since last year - this is a step that after it actually banned OneCoin and its promoters from the country.

The Bulgarian prosecutor's office said that over the past two days, corporate offices related to the company associated with OneCoin were raided. According to the government, dozens of witnesses were also interviewed.

The statement also highlighted the international nature of the investigation, which points to a number of countries that in recent months have begun investigating their cases. In July, for example, reports indicated that the Indian authorities accuse the founder of OneCoin, Ruja Ignatova, in connection with the alleged pyramid scheme.

According to the prosecutor's office, at present, companies associated with OneCoin Ltd. are being investigated in England, Ireland, Italy, the USA, Canada, Ukraine, Lithuania, Latvia, Estonia and many other countries.
