Bogdan Hossu, President of the ‘Cartel Alfa’ Confederation, is not a defendant in any criminal case currently handled by the National Anticorruption Agency (DNA), the DNA stated for Mediafax after Hossu declared yesterday that he is investigated by DNA prosecutors, being charged with corruption in connection to a repair works contract. The ‘Cartel Alfa’ leader presented a DNA official reported dated January 31, 2011, a report according to which prosecutor Claudia Rosu took note of Bogdan Hossu in the same case that also targeted former CNSLR-Fratia President Marius Petcu. Bogdan Hossu was charged, apparently with no connection with the charges brought against Marius Petcu, with preferentially awarding capital repair work contracts. The works would have taken place on two hotels belonging to SC Alfa Hotels SRL. “In fact, the repairs were done by a Focsani-based company whose owner is Bogdan Hossu’s nephew and the works were subcontracted to a company whose owner is Bogdan Hossu’s son-in-law,” the document presented by Hossu reads. The trade union leader defended himself by saying that the repair works on the two hotels – the Carpati Hotel in Predeal and the Parang Hotel in Olanesti – were not even contracted, a tender being ongoing for one of them. “My nephews are seven and nine years old, it’s kind of difficult for them to own companies,” Hossu said. He pointed out that he received all documents related to this case from “third parties,” “not from the DNA as it should have been natural,” the documents being used in court, in the press or “being the subject of speculations.” Hossu states that until now he has never been summoned at the DNA, and that is why, dissatisfied with the fact that he was not allowed to answer the charges, he resorted to the Supreme Magistracy Council’s Judicial Inspection, complaining of the prosecutors’ behavior in relation to the documents that concern him.
