Inspectors were finally able to enter the premises of the Besa Tours company, which operated the bus that crashed in Bulgaria on Tuesday morning with the loss of 45 lives.

Earlier today the inspectors were not allowed to enter the office, to shock and dismay of the public. Currently, the office is cordoned off with police tape.

So far, it has been determined that neither of the two drivers were registered with the Besa company. One of them had a valid certificate for a bus driver, but was not employed in Besa, and the other had an expired certificate.

The bus was registered three years ago and had its mandatory testing in the Via garage in Skopje’s Saraj district just last month. Despite initial reports that this is a new bus, it was found out that the bus was made in 2007, and had cosmetic changes done to it.
