Union leader charged by anticorruption prosecutors

CNSLR Fratia trade union confederation’s first vice president Liviu Luca was charged by anticorruption prosecutors yesterday in relation to the signing of a management contract between a company of the confederation and a Timisoara firm, Mediafax reports.

The contract refers to transfer of management of CNSLR assets. After being heard at the National Anticorruption Directorate (DNA) yesterday, Luca said he does not exactly know what charges are brought against him and that he does not understand what the problem is, given that a management contract was signed by the two companies involved. Luca added that prosecutors asked him if he “had the right of signature.”

“Honestly, I don’t understand what the problem is. A management contract was signed between the unions’ company and another company, with the obligation that the union’s company brings a profit (…). I don’t see any problem,” he said.

DNA prosecutors yesterday also heard Bucharest District 5 Mayor and leading opposition Social-Democrat Marian Vanghelie. Press reports suggested that the mayor was heard in the case of the ‘Economat’ stores, which sold low-price products for pensioners and people with low incomes. But Vanghelie denied the information, saying he was heard as a witness in a case regarding his office’s activity. “I was asked some normal questions about the activity of the institution I lead: how funds were allocated within the local council, standard things,” he said, quoted by Realitatea.net.
