Court of Accounts completes Udrea file

The head of the Court of Accounts, Nicolae Vacaroiu, confirmed that his institution has completed investigations into Elena Udrea, who is accused of embezzlement during her term as Minister of Tourism, Realitatea TV reported. Vacaroiu said the probes demanded last year by a parliamentary investigation commission were finalized and the file will be soon sent to the Chamber of Deputies.

Last year, the parliamentary investigation panel recommended that Udrea be probed by prosecutors for allegedly misusing funds of her ministry and for using money from the institution to promote her own image. When heard by the commission, Udrea repeatedly denied any wrongdoing and insisted that prosecutors had already decided there was no need to investigate her. The parliamentary inquiry was held before Udrea was named minister of the revamped Regional Development and Tourism Ministry in the new Emil Boc cabinet, in December. Udrea repeatedly slammed the investigation panel, accusing its members of abusive behavior and of trying to set her up.
