Boc accused of using SRI helicopter to pick up relatives

After his visit in Brasov, Prime Minister Emil Boc flew back to Bucharest in a Romanian Intelligence Agency (SRI) helicopter, Mediafax informs. The Realitatea TV images showed the Prime Minister and two children getting out of the helicopter and boarding a car that was part of the official motorcade. Prime Minister Boc was in Brasov on Tuesday where he attended the inauguration of the Premium Aerotec aircraft components plant in Ghimbav. The Premier stated on Realitatea TV that he paid RON 2,130 in order for his youngest daughter and a nephew to accompany him from Brasov to Bucharest. “I paid the sum of RON 2,130.60, receipt number 42555, bill number 1451, on July 12, the sum being calculated by SRI representatives,” Boc stated. He pointed out that he was in a hurry to reach Bucharest in order to prepare the government’s meeting and that is why he chose to travel by helicopter. “I could have used the helicopter for free by stating that they were family members and in general we know very well that family members don’t have to pay or are exempt from paying in principle,” Premier Boc stated. Boc pointed out that the law on whose basis SRI works allows the agency to offer such services to other persons too even if they are not officials.
