560 former officers and informers of the Securitate exposed in 2009

The National Council for the Investigation of the Securitate Archives (CNSAS) initiated over 560 legal actions against former officers and collaborators of the Securitate, which is double the preceding year’s figures, is stated in their 2009 activity report. The persons deferred to justice include the Romanian ambassador to Tunisia, two MPs of the Social-Democrat Party (PSD) – both lost the trial with CNSAS -, numerous magistrates, prosecutors, judges, as well as more than 70 mayors. Up to now, out of the 563 trials initiated by the Council, 311 have been given a court ruling, 16 of which are final, CNSAS officials stated, quoted by Hotnews. In 2008, CNSAS initiated 292 litigations, meant to set whether the defendants acted as officers or collaborators of the Securitate, out of which, by the end of last year, 164 were given a court ruling. According to the same report, CNSAS focused, pre-eminently, on default checks, particularly into the records of candidates in the 2008 general and EP elections.

Out of the 7,574 people investigated by default in 2009, 1,326 are candidates or people who hold, at present, MP offices, following the 2008 elections.

This year, CNSAS has initiated, so far, 287 actions for failure, 88 targeting alleged collaborators and 199 cadres of the Securitate.
