TV station urged to ‘correct’ ALRO reports

The organized crime investigation department (DIICOT) has formally requested the Audio-Visual National Council (CNA) to ask Realitatea TV to correct several allegedly fake information presented in one of its shows connected to ALRO scandal, Agerpres informs.

The complaint refers to “Ora de foc,” a show broadcasted on November 4, where apparently, “false and untruthful affirmations were published regarding DIICOT’s handling of a case, which came in sheer conflict with all the deontological norms regarding the journalist profession.”

“These appreciations have as main aim the denigration of the institution’s criminal investigation, attempting to prove that political spheres of influence were involved with the justice act,” writes the complaint towards CNA, which also adds that “in this way, public perception on magistrates and their work is altered.” The Organized Crime and Terrorist Investigation Department also says the whole purpose of the November 4 talk show was to speculate “on no real basis” the way the ALRO file was handled and instrumented. The same show was fined by CNA with RON 10,000 following presidential administration complaints which accused it of hurting the image of Traian Basescu, in a supposed plan to impeach the head of state based on the ALRO wiretaps scandal. According to an article published in Evenimentul Zilei last week, the plan was set by former Realitatea TV owner Sorin Ovidiu Vintu, together with Antena owner Dan Voiculescu.

As for Vintu, the aiding and abetting trial he is subject to was yesterday postponed until November 26 by a Bucharest court.
