PNL Vice-President Relu Fenechiu went to the DNA headquarters yesterday morning, where he was told by the prosecutors that the legal classification of the ‘Transformer Affair’ case had changed from complicity to abuse of office to abuse of office with extremely grievous consequences. The expert examinations performed in the case lasted almost two years and finally revealed a very big damage which called for a different legal classification of the offence. Initially, Fenechiu, former Education Minister Cristian Adomnitei, as well as three other people had been charged with complicity to abuse of office and five Electrica Moldova directors had been charged with abuse of office. At the same time, the prosecutors impounded a few properties belonging to Relu Fenechiu. Local media has been relating that, in 2006, Relu Fenechiu’s companies (SC La Rocca SRL, Fene Grup SA) bought with ROL 20 bn dozens of transformers which they resold to Electrica Moldova company for ROL 100 bn. Ex-Education Minister Cristian Adomnitei, whose company allegedly participated in the tendering procedure, is also under investigation in the case, judicial sources were saying. At the time, Relu Fenechiu said that ‘all the SC Fene Grup SA business has been conducted under conditions of transparency and in observance of the applicable legislation’.
