Presidential adviser recruited by Securitate in 1989

Alexandra Gatej, a presidential adviser on business environment, was recruited by the communist secret police – Securitate – in 1989 under the codename “Florina”. The National Council for the Study of Securitate Archives (CNSAS) has released a non-collaboration certificate, as no other evidence has been found to justify the CNSAS sending the case to court. “Under the former law, Gatej would surely have been handed a political policing verdict, given her collaborative enthusiasm, as noted by the officer assigned to her, therefore, under the former procedures she wouldn’t have got off. However, under the law in force, we have no additional evidence, no information notes by her have been found,” CNSAS sources said. The presidential adviser yesterday called CNSAS’s decision as quite clear, adding she had nothing to reproach herself, professionally or humanly. “I therefore don’t hold as necessary any further comments on the CNSAS certificate that clearly states my non-cooperation (with Securitate). Such speculations only distort the significance of the investigation and the CNSAS decision,” Gatej’s statement to Mediafax reads.
