Its leader is 40-year-old Horatiu Potra, a former French Foreign Legion officer holding both Romanian and French citizenship, who fought in various areas of South Africa, ‘Puterea’ online edition writes. According to DIICOT prosecutors, the 16-strong ring operated in the counties of Sibiu and Mures.
