The American people owe the Romanian government and people gratitude for their efforts in support of the investigation against Russian citizen Viktor Bout, U.S. Ambassador Mark Gitenstein said in a press release on Friday.

According to the document, the investigation in the case was conducted in collaboration with Romanian authorities and several other countries. Bout was found guilty on all charges against him, including: conspiring to kill U.S. nationals and U.S. officers and employees, conspiring to acquire and use anti-aircraft missiles and to provide material support to a foreign terrorist organization (Colombia’s FARC), the release also notes. “The results of this investigation and successful prosecution serve as an example of the close partnership that the U.S. Drug Enforcement Adminis­tration (DEA) is privileged to share with both Romanian prosecutors in the Directorate for Investigating Offenses involving Organized Crime and Terrorism (DIICOT) and with criminal investigators of the Romanian National Police Orga­nized Crime Directorate,” the document quotes Gitenstein as saying.
