The High Court’s Prosecutor’s Office deferred to justice, on Tuesday evening, the Greater Romania Party (PRM) leader Corneliu Vadim Tudor, for outrage and acting in violation of a court decision regarding the evacuation of the PRM office situated on Emile Zola Street. The case was forwarded, yesterday, to the High Court of Cassation and Justice (ICCJ)’s Criminal Section.
According to a release remitted by the ICCJ Prosecutor’s Office, quoted by Mediafax, the evidence collected by the investigators indicated that, on January 4, 2011, during the enforcement of a court decision regarding PRM’s Bucharest central office, Corneliu Vadim Tudor opposed the enforcement thereof, resorting to threats and physical violence against an officer of the court, snatching out of the latter’s hand the legal enforcement documents and throwing them away. At the same time, Vadim physically abused a police inspector, who was there in the line of duty. Furthermore, during the enforcement action, Vadim Tudor resorted to words, gestures and manifestations which were morally offensive and likely to cause outrage, the release further reads.
Vadim Tudor was quick to respond. Yesterday, the MEP attacked vehemently President Traian Basescu, whom he accuses of being behind his deferral to justice. “This is a final attempt of Traian Basescu’s Mafia to shut us down. They kicked us out of the Romanian Parliament, they sent dozens of police officers at our office, they kicked us out of there as well, and still they weren’t satisfied. However, I’m telling you, the national criminal Traian Basescu won’t live the day to see Vadim Tudor in prison. He’s on his last legs. (…) It took Kovesi’s minions three months to defer me to justice. Why is that? Because they didn’t have any evidence. (…) This is the one-eyed one’s revenge because Vadim Tudor won’t keep his mouth shut,” Vadim Tudor stated, quoted by Realitatea TV.
