Nicolae Popa, sentenced to 15 years in prison in the FNI case, will be brought to Romania before Easter, after the decree for his extradition was signed by the Indonesian president, Susilo Bambang Yudhoyono, Mediafax reports.
Officials of the Public Ministry, the Justice Ministry and the Romanian Police discussed several possible ways of collecting Popa from Indonesia. One of these scenarios is that two police officers should collect Popa on April 19, from Indonesia, and to have him back to Romania by April 22.
According to the spokesman of the Interior Ministry, Marius Militaru, a Romanian police escort will be dispatched to Jakarta to bring Popa back to Romania.
“Several scenarios are analysed now regarding the amount of time the Romanian police officers are to spend in Jakarta,” Militaru stated.
The former Gelsor manager, Nicolae Popa, was sentenced, in 2006, by the Bucharest Court, to 15 years in prison for fraud, alongside Ioana Maria Vlas, a decision declared final in 2009. Popa was the manager of the Gelsor group and a member on the Trust Council of SOV Invest, the company which managed FNI. The final and irrevocable decision in the FNI bankruptcy case was issued on June 4, 2006, by the High Court of Cassation and Justice.
