Prosecutors failed to prove bribery in ‘Aunt Tamara’ case

The Supreme Court has published the court ruling reached in the Aunt Tamara case, a ruling that acquitted Adrian Nastase on December 15, 2011. According to the ruling, the judges noted that the prosecutors failed to prove the bribery Nastase was charged with. The judges also noted that Genica Boerica’s statement, the prosecution’s main evidence in the case, was made while he was under arrest, hence it cannot be considered credible. The court also pointed out that the prosecutors’ interpretation of the evidence at hand was obviously “subjective and part of a logic that an objective observer cannot understand.” “The prosecution’s main evidence is the statement made by witness Genica Boerica, however its credibility can be questioned since it was made in 2006, while the witness was under arrest for a different reason, and the lie detector test he underwent pointed to a dissimulated behaviour,” the judges wrote. At the same time, there was no evidence of a meeting between defendants Nastase Adrian, Melinescu Ioan and Priboi Ristea, a meeting allegedly mediated by witness Genica Boerica. “Witness Genica Boerica himself points out that Nastase Adrian did not promise Melinescu Ioan to appoint him President of the National Office for Preventing and Combating Money Laundering,” the judges wrote.
