Florin Popescu sued for conflict of interests and false statements


Deputy Florin Popescu was sued for conflict of interests because during the period when he was chairman of Dambovita County Council he signed construction contracts with Procor company, where he was shareholder, and for false statements in the wealth declarations in 2008 to 2011, reads a press release sent by the Prosecutor’s Office with the High Court of Cassation and Justice, quoted by Mediafax. According to the prosecutors’ indictment, Florin Popescu, as chairman of Dambovita County Council, signed seven additional papers at a construction contract signed between the council and Procor company, where he along with his father and brother were shareholders until July 14, 2008, as well as a construction contract signed with the same company, creating indirectly a gain for himself and his relatives. The investigators claim that during the same interval Popescu participated in the shareholders meetings at three companies where he was shareholder, during which decisions were made regarding another company the other three traded with. As for the accusations of false statements, the prosecutors say that Popescu “made statements contrary to the truth” when he filled in his wealth statement for 2008 to 2011 as chairman of the county council. The file will be solved by the judges of the High Court of Cassation and Justice.
