SPP accused of inflating new HQ cost

The Political Investigations Group (GIP) is urging PM Emil Boc to explain expenses incurred with the construction of the new headquarter of Protection and Security Service (SPP), claiming the institution has ‘unjustifiably’ inflated the maximum construction allocation by 45 per cent. ‘GIP is requesting Prime-Minister Emil Boc to explain why a huge amount of the public money is being spent on building the new SPP headquarters, under harsh conditions of full economic and financial recession in the country, where SPP unjustifiably increased the maximum allocation for the construction of the building by 45 per cent. SPP already has a headquarter within the Parliament Palace and millions of euros have been spent over the years for its renovation and furnishing, reads a press release from GIP President Mugur Ciuvica. GIP claims the value of the SPP headquarters construction agreement was increased by an additional deed. According to the quoted source, the contract worth RON 135,981,894 not including VAT was awarded on March 12, 2009, to Bog’art SRL which, according to GIP, ‘is owned by Raul Doicescu, a friend and associate of Adriean Videanu’s’. ‘SPP accepted to increase the already huge initial value of the contract’ the press release further states.
