Gheorghe Popescu not a Securitate collaborator, CNSAS says

Former football international player Gheorghe Popescu has received on Tuesday from the CNSAS a report that attests that he was not a Securitate collaborator, sources from within the institution informed Mediafax at the end of the meeting held by the CNSAS College on Tuesday.

‘Mr. Popescu legally approached our institution and asked for his dossier to be checked. We followed the legal course and after petitioning all the archive holders we ascertained, during the College’s meeting on Tuesday, that Mr. Popescu was not a Securitate collaborator. The report will be written, sent to him and posted on the website. Just like in all the other cases analyzed by our institution, the report can be contested within the legal period,’ the aforementioned sources stated.

‘I filed a petition to the CNSAS and asked the members of the College to analyze my dossier and to decide whether I was a Securitate collaborator or not… I will organize a press conference in which I will publicly present the results of this analysis,’ Popescu stated in his turn.

On Monday June 29, ‘Adevarul’ daily reported that the former international player snitched on his colleagues from 1986 to 1989, being listed in his Securitate informant dossier under the code-name ‘Petrescu.’

‘For approximately three years Gheorghe Popescu wrote nine informative reports that concerned, among others, former football player and current head coach Emil Sandoi and Constantin Otet, the former head coach of Craiova Maxima,’ ‘Adevarul’ reported.
