Florin Prunea returns to DNA Pitesti

The Romanian Football Federation’s (FRF) international relations manager, Florin Prunea, who is under investigation in the football corruption case, once again went to DNA Pitesti on Wednesday.


Prunea made no statement before entering the DNA building, but he was allegedly summoned to take act of the criminal investigation material against him.


FRF’s international relations manager was interviewed by DNA prosecutors on May 14 and 28.


Florin Prunea was indicted under the charges of bribe taking and influence peddling in the corruption case that is shaking the Romanian football, as he is accused that he intervened at FRF in favor of the FC Arges boss Cornel Penescu.


According to a memo made by DNA prosecutors, made public by media on May 15, “defendant Penescu Gheorghe Cornel offered, through the intermediary of Minca Cristian, president of the football club FC Arges Pitesti, on September 30, 2008 and October 31, 2008 to the named Prunea Florian the sum of EUR 2,000 to intervene at the Discipline Commission of the Romanian Football Federation in order not to be sanctioned for a misdemeanor, while on 03.11.2008, through the same Minca Cristian, he gave the named Prunea Florian the sum of USD 10,000 so that he intervenes at the Appeal Commission of the Romanian Football federation in order to write off or reduce the RON 300,000 sanction dictated against the defendant.”


According to the same document, Penescu gave various sums of money, through the intermediary of his trusted man Liviu Facaleata, to several referees, to favor the football team FC Arges.
