Charges against Patriciu, not prescribed, judge says

Judge Constantin Marino from the Bucharest Court went back yesterday on his decision concerning the intervention of the special prescription term for charges in the Rompetrol case, Mediafax reports. During yesterday’s hearing, the judge found that the special prescription did not apply as yet, because the trial was suspended last year and the case was forwarded to the Constitutional Court, where it remained over a year, during which time the term for prescription is also suspended, according to a recent decision of the High Court of Cassation and Justice (ICCJ). The defence voiced their disgruntlement stating that all parties, the prosecutor included, had concluded in favour of the special prescription during the preceding hearing. In September 2006, Dinu Patriciu was deferred to justice in the Rompetrol case on several charges, including embezzlement and money-laundering.
