The son of the Democrat Liberal Party (PDL) Senator Sorina Placinta remains in custody. The Bucharest Court of Appeal magistrates decided, on Tuesday, to reject the appeal filed by Andrei Placinta’s lawyers against the decision for his preventive arrest. Andrei Placinta was accused of attempted murder after driving straight into a man who had tried to intervene in an argument between the PDL senator’s son and his girlfriend. The man injured by Placinta Jr. was taken to the Legal Medicine Institute, so the doctors could establish how many days he would need to recover. The son of the former Youth and Sports Minister was sentenced to 29 days’ preventive arrest on December 8, by a Bucharest Court ruling.
