Presidential spokesperson denies rumours of increased security for President

Security measures for President Traian Basescu’s personal protection have not been increased beyond normal levels, a spokesman for the presidency, Valeriu Turcan said, quoted by Agerpres. “There has been a lot of false information in the media lately over this matter and we need to tell you the security measures taken for the President’s protection are the normal ones. They haven’t been supplemented. You have full proof of it in the fact that President Basescu has flew to Bruxelles this morning aboard a liner, being only accompanied by an aide, “ Turcan said.

He also appreciated false information on the matter as “classic schemes of manipulation executed by dailies such as Puterea and Cotidianul, dailies that easily use information that is not verified.” “The aim is to create a negative wave of news addressing the President, and this wave is then taken over by televisions, especially those channels who are in a continous campaign against the president” the spokesman also said.

According to a piece of information published by Cotidianul online, both President Basescu and PM Boc “have been benefited from increased security as of Tuesday morning.” The article in Cotidianul also states that some of these measures are without precedent in the past ten years and that increasing security has been applied to both official residences and on the official routes the two are to undertake.
