CFR Infrastructure head, Board likely to be sacked following Control Corps report


The managing director of the Romanian Railways Company (CFR) Infrastructure Division and members of the company’s Board are likely to be sacked in the upcoming period, following a report drawn up by the Transport Ministry’s Control Corps, which highlights a range of irregularities in the company’s activity, Transport Minister Ramona Manescu said. ‘Following the irregularities cited in the report drawn up by the Transport Ministry’s Control Corps, such a thing is likely to happen as to sack the CFR Infrastructure managing director and members of the Board of Directors in the upcoming period. However, we must observe the law, since there are certain procedures and deadlines. The law forces me to undergo certain phases. The one who does not observe the law might end up at the National Anti-Corruption Directorate (DNA). I hope such a procedure would not take long, because there are losses for each extra day of delay,’ Manescu told Digi 24 news channel. She added the ministry’s control team also uncovered a range of irregularities also at national airline Tarom.
The Transport Ministry began checking the activity of CFR Infrastructure and CFR Passengers Divisions, following signals received with respect to the two companies, the minister had announced at the end of November. Manescu had explained she was trying to establish to what extent the private management is a better solution for the companies responsible to the ministry and had promised that only those managers who put forward solutions and make the companies profitable would remain.
