Romania’s ambassador to Lisbon collaborated with Securitate, Court states

The Bucharest Court of Appeal ruled yesterday that Romania’s Ambassador to Lisbon, Gabriel Gafita, collaborated with Securitate, having admitted the request by the National Council for the Study of Securitate Archives (CNSAS) to ascertain the finding. According to Mediafax, the ruling can be challenged by an appeal with the Supreme Court. The trial had originally been heard before the Bucharest Tribunal, yet, as the law changed, the dossier was transferred to a higher court. In July 2008, Romania’s Ambassador to Lisbon said he had been summoned by the Bucharest Tribunal over documents sent by CNSAS on his alleged recruiting by Securitate in 1977.
