The Supreme Court decided on Monday that the trial in which police officer Cristian Cioaca is accused of violating his wife’s electronic mail should go back to the Brasov Court, arguing that the latter should have been the court competent to solve the case. The Supreme Court thus canceled the Brasov Court of Appeals’ September 27, 2010 ruling that condemned Cristian Cioaca to three years in jail and hacker Marian Nitu to 18 months in jail, and decided to send the file to the Brasov Court. Cioaca and Nitu were sued by Directorate for Investigating Organised Crime and Terrorism (DIICOT) prosecutors on February 2009 for unlawfully accessing electronic mail, restricting access to IT data and for unauthorized transfer of IT data. Lawyer Elodia Ghinescu disappeared on August 29, 2007, her case being one that received a lot of attention in Romanian media. Her husband Cristian Cioaca remains the main suspect, however he denied having anything to do with his wife’s disappearance.
