The manager of the Agency for Payments in Agriculture (APIA) in Salaj, Alexandru Muresan is a model civil servant, appointed on political criteria as manager of the institution last summer. Now Muresan is managing – without any hindrance – funds worth millions of EUR destined to agriculture, though he was indicted for electoral fraud. He allegedly voted four times in the European elections of 2009, at four voting stations. Several weeks after being sent in court for electoral fraud, Alexandru Muresan is still the head of APIA, and authorities don’t show any intention to replace him, or at least suspend him until Justice gives its verdict. “Mr. Muresan has been a PD-L member for the last four to five years, he is an active member of his party branch and had the necessary political support. You know the premier’s position: for a moment of dizziness, you must face the consequences,” Deputy Lucian Bode, the head of PD-L Salaj told ‘Jurnalul National’. Prosecutors charged Alexandru Muresan with voting four times in the European elections of June 7, 2009, based on evidence provided by the Permanent Electoral Authority, which discovered his ID on voting lists in four localities. Muresan also acts as secretary general of PD-L Salaj, which appointed him in this position precisely after the European ballot. PD-L leaders told Jurnalul National that the APIA manager is only “suspected” of electoral fraud, while Premier Emil Boc asked Justice to do its duty.
