The deputy Speaker of the Senate Dan Voiculescu sent a letter to the board of the Senate in which he accuses the head of the Romanian Protection and Guard Service (SPP), Lucian Pahontu, of giving orders to have him spied, arguing that this is only a step away from aggressive action. “However, the moment a citizen who happens to be an MP and a member of the opposition is placed under close watch, the premises are laid for severe institutional abuse,” Voiculescu says. The deputy Speaker of the Senate is certain that he is not the only member of the opposition who “is enjoying the special attention” of the intelligence services.
SPP has denied monitoring Senate Deputy Speaker Dan Voiculescu, arguing his statements had ‘a conspicuously political’ content.
