Nastase demands explanations from the general prosecutor about his files

The president of the National Council of the Social-Democrat Party Adrian Nastase sent an open letter to the general prosecutor of Romania, Laura Codruta Kovesi, in which he demands explanations on how the Presidency got hold of the criminal files against him, as mentioned by the transcript of a discussion between the head of state and the leaders of PSD.

In the letter, which he posted on his internet blog, Nastase wrote that the transcript published by media on March 28, under the title “The truth on how Basescu releases the Nastase files” refers to a meeting, on February 17, 2009, between President Traian Basescu and some leaders of PSD. “The transcript was made available by presidential spokesman Valeriu Turcan,” and the general prosecutor of Romania attended the talks.

More precisely, Nastase wants the general prosecutor to tell him what files President Basescu referred to, on February 17, 2009, what legal provisions allowed prosecutors to send these documents to the Presidency, to what purpose, and when have the files been returned to the General Prosecutor’s Office, if they were returned.
Furthermore, Nastase reminds that the law strictly prohibits the copying – in any form – of criminal investigation files before they are sent to court.
