At first glance, "Pearl house" looks like an ordinary newly constructed hotel, with the difference that access to it is proved prohibited. Not only journalists, but also inspectors from the Regional Health Inspectorate, which made verification signal to the media were not allowed on Tuesday to cross the threshold of the "reception". And the fact that on the same day telltale sites that led us to the illegal clinic were downloaded from the internet, showed that there is still something wrong with the tourist site. In complete secrecy was sunk five-story building. Terrible smell seeped from cracks in the doors and windows. Frowning employee greeted us with the words: "I can not let you go without permission, you have to ask." Mustache man introduced himself to guard the "Pearl Lodge" and noted that the hotel is not working. Plate or a message that the site is closed, there placed anywhere. The parking lot was parked three cars with English registration and of the staff and Britons could be seen on the terraces, the restaurant and around the hotel. "I chase them from the main entrance, and they enter the door to the yard," talking on the phone to journalists at the guard, holding a stick in his hand. According to him, the complex does not work, accidentally noticed around Englishmen were apartment owners.
At the same time there were staying and relatives of the deceased in Stoykite Englishman who wanted to be alive cremated and his ashes to be scattered over the Rhodope Mountains.
On the parade ground on the underside visible sallow foreigner and a blonde woman basking sitting on two chairs. Even when our descent staff frantically rushed to lock the glass doors leading to the bar, restaurant and spa, which cut off all access to outsiders even to the public part of the hotel. Minutes later, two foreigners were harvested and hidden from the eyes of reporters. The guard held several conversations with the owner Amanda. We learned that it is working in Smolyan and does not know when it will come.
Chilling story about what is happening behind the thick walls of the building make a former employee of the hotel who asked at this stage to remain anonymous. "In the beginning they developed such medical activities. They started receiving patients in 2012. In summer they enjoyed basis as a medical center, and winter - for tourists. Came sick, mainly from cancer, I've seen people with leprosy and very severe skin condition on his hands. My bosses explained that come to treatment, although the hotel to no nurses and doctors, "said the man. The main treatment was with MMS.

It has visited police signal Amanda Douglas because former employee who left. Their goal was to intimidate him to keep quiet. I know, they have some ownership in Stoykite ago to build a hotel. I've seen miracles happen there. Come are people watching him dying it is two weeks leave, if anything it is not. I have also tried MMS and know that there are people who are cured of it, "added the official.
Bewildered how many years no institution is aware of what is happening behind the walls of "Pearl Lodge". But the fact is that since last year to cancer patients now two strangers - a man and a woman were found dead there. A third case of died of cancer at a hotel near the stand from this Sunday is also associated living in the area with British businessmen. Local saw him last Saturday, when he was walking with Amanda in the village center.

Levs Coroner Dr. Todor Dobrev: Both Englishmen were in the last stage of cancer
Both died last week were in the last stages of cancer. The disease Stephen Kalig proven skenegrafski and radiographically. It was in a very difficult phase and it is a cause of death. In 2010-2011 he lays in the Smolyan hospital, but has yet to check the documentation. The first died - Timothy Rupel is a huge tumor of the lung. Four days before he died has passed through the hospital in Smolyan, he made his research. Colleagues wondered how he lived. Anything that can be taken for testing was taken from me. There is nothing that can disturb me.
Chief of the RHI Dr. Mimi Kubateva: A man who has used their services said that in the case of people with end-stage, it is registered in the RHI in August 2010 as a hotel with pool and spa. Is checked, the latter in January. Were not detected violations. Comply with hygiene requirements. Not worked pool and sauna. What has changed is that from 2012 until now remained to work only the first floor as a hotel, the other apartments are sold out. After your request yesterday, our staff have been verified, but the hotel was not working. There was a guard who has not let inspectors inside. We will attempt to continue with checks to further clarified the situation. We do not have registered a hospital. If it is a business that uses MMS, it is classified as an unconventional method to influence individual health. In these cases, according to the Health Act, the person who exercises it must be registered in the RHI. No such registration and if described in their website already downloaded, so means committing illegal activities. I spoke with someone who has used their services, and he said he is concerned about people in the terminal stage, desperate of all.
