Adrian Nastase gets 4 year-prison sentence without parole


Nastase was also barred from holding any public office and run in elections for a 5-year interval.
His wife Dana was sentenced to 3 years, suspended. RON 1.8 M confiscated from the family wealth.

The former premier and PSD president Adrian Nastase was definitively sentenced to four years of prison without parole for blackmail and bribe taking and his wife Dana to 3 years, suspended, in the Zambaccian case. The five-judge panel of the Supreme Court condemned Adrian Nastase to four years for bribe taking in continued form and 3 years for blackmail. The court merged the sentences and Adrian Nastase will do the longest one, of four years. The court also prohibited Nastase from exerting some civil rights after he will be released from prison: the right to elect and be elected in offices of public authority or in elective public functions; the right to hold an office involving the exercise of state authority; the right to hold a position or conduct an activity similar to that which was used for committing the crime. In a first trial, Nastase was sentenced to 3 years, suspended in this file and was acquitted for bribe taking.
Dana Nastase was condemned to 3 years in prison for “improper participation in using forged documents at the customs authority,” but the court suspended her sentence for a probation period of 8 years. The court also ordered the confiscation of RON 1.8 M from the wealth of the Nastase family.
Adrian Nastase is accused in this case that, during 2002 – 2004, in his position as premier, received directly and through the intermediary of his wife Dana Nastase undeserved benefits worth approximately EUR 630,000 at the exchange rate of 2002/2004. These undeserved benefits consist in the price of goods imported from China and the expenses related to these imports, along with the cost of works made to the buildings owned by Nastase in Cornu and Bucharest.
At the last term, the prosecutor of the National Anticorruption Directorate (DNA) demanded the 5-judge panel of the High Court of Cassation and Justice (ICCJ) sentences without parole for the Nastase spouses.

The defense team of Adrian Nastase, comprising 4 lawyers, accused the existence of many flaws in the Zambaccian file, such as evidence and documents without legal relevance, contradictory testimonies and accusations that do not exist in their materiality.
Adrian Nastase said at the conclusion of the trial that only a death sentence by hanging would possibly surprise him, as many things remained unsolved in this case and a new trial would be a normal solution. This is not the first prison sentence for the former PSD premier. On 20 June 2012, Adrian Nastase was definitively sentenced by ICCJ to 2 years without parole in the ‘Quality Trophy’ file, about the raising of funds for the electoral campaign of 2004, when he ran for president on behalf of PSD. Nastase was imprisoned on 26 June 2012 and released on 18 March 2013, after the Bucharest Tribunal admitted his request to be released on parole.
Premier Victor Ponta said yesterday morning, before learning the sentence, that it is a big injustice for Adrian Nastase to be hounded for life by “the system of Traian Basescu,” given the “good and important” things which the former premier did for the country. The leaders of PSD that gathered for the first meeting of the BPN in 2014 sent support messages to Adrian Nastase, saying that they are with him and pray God to help him.

    Familia Nastase si-a tras un glont in gat
    Din pacate, in gatul poporului roman.

    Acum cateva ore, romanii au aflat vestea cea mare:
    • Adrian Nastase: 4 ani de puscarie, cu executare. Pentru mita. Plus 3 ani pentru santaj (dar din pacate, in Romania pedepsele nu se aduna, ci ramane doar pedeapsa cea mai mare. Ca e comunism).
    • Dana Nastase, sotia lui: 3 ani de inchisoare, cu suspendare. Pentru complicitate la mita.
    • Micutul Andrei Nastase, fiul: nimic. Inca…
    Cica fostul premier a transmis poporului ca se va preda de buna voie autoritatilor. Fara sa mai faca circ, ca data trecuta.
    Din pacate, nu va preda si miliardele de euro furate de la romani.

    Te bucuri, romanule?
    Sigur ca da! Adrian Nastase era “taica” lor. Simbolul bataii de joc la adresa poporului roman si al dispretului fata de orice lege europeana. N-o fi inventat el cuvantul “pulime” – dar sigur l-a folosit cel mai apasat. Ati uitat cum l-a primit PSD-ul cu aplauze, cand a iesit din puscarie? Este eroul lor!
    Nu mai exista nicaieri in lume, vreo autostrada de 52 de kilometri, care sa fi costat 1,3 miliarde de euro.
    Multe nenorociri s-au facut in timpul guvernarii lui Nastase: vanzarea Petrom aproape pe gratis cu tot cu resursele din subsol pana la epuizare, vanzarea tuturor combinatelor metalurgice din Romania catre rusii de la Mechel (care anul trecut le-au si inchis). Dar contractul cu Bechtel este “capodopera” comunistilor romani. Contract care, acum, s-a si pierdut (dupa cum ne-a zis razand Dan Sova). Cica s-a ratacit prin Minister: asa ca romanii nu vor avea niciodata ocazia sa-l citeasca cu ochii lor.
    Daca nici asta nu-i scuipat in obraz, care-o mai fi?
    Multa lume n-a crezut sa vina vreodata aceasta zi. Romanii au zis: nu se poate domne, sa intre Nastase dupa gratii…decat asa…in joaca…pai nu-ti dai seama ca se cutremura tot rahatul?
    Ei, uite ca a intrat. Intrebarea este: s-a cutremurat cu adevarat “rahatul”? Pai…cam da!
    Nastase Adrian, ca si Al Capone cunoscut de lumea intreaga ca si gangster-criminal, a fost condamnat pentru un mizilic si nu pentru uriasul rau pe care l-a facut Romaniei si romanilor. Insa e un bun inceput.
    In razboiul dintre poporul roman si politicieni, asta este prima infrangere adevarata a taberei LOR.

    Cine i-a invins?
    Nastase zice ca Basescu (cica justitia basista). Eu nu cred. Basescu e la putere de ani de zile si s-a coit pana n-a mai putut, fara sa iasa nici un fas. Basescu a produs pana acum doar spectacol. Showman!
    Eu cred ca altcineva a pus piciorul in prag. Si “cineva”-ul asta, nu e roman deloc! Nu e nea Traian. E cineva care vorbeste sau engleza, sau germana. Si care nu mai are timp de glume. Si e pus pe facut ordine in Romania.
    Dar oricum si oricine ar fi, eu il felicit. Iar in razboiul care va urma (ca razboiul nu s-a terminat, nici o grija), eu voi fi de partea lui. Si contra “rahatului” care s-a cutremurat azi.

    Ca de azi, tara mea nu mai e o tara de rahat!

    Ion,
    Un roman care a fost nevoit sa-si paraseasca impreuna cu toata familia tara si tot ce a avut mai drag, din cauza unor nemernici ca Nastase Adrian.

    The bitch should have been made serve her sentence as well!

    Adrian Nastase was sentenced to 4 years inprisonment due to political reasons. Romania is currently monitored by the EU regarding the corruption and the former prime minister was used so that the Romanian “justice” could give a corruption estinction example. Legally, there were not enough proofs for this conviction. And still…
