The former Environment Minister said on Tuesday, after the Judicial Committee of the Chamber of Deputies, that the Anti-corruption Department (DNA) files are proving his innocence because they include private conversations of his wife’s, which have nothing to do with the cause, and that his problems could have been solved rapidly if the DNA had heard him. Borbely stated for B1 TV he had only a buy-sell agreement which doesn’t necessarily transform a person into an owner. This happens only after the contract is registered and definitive. The UDMR leader mentioned he can’t understand how the DNA could have ignored this essential element of civil code. “After I read my file – on Thursday I could finally read my file – I was once again convinced of what I saw in it. What’s all about: after two years, starting 2010, in which about 15 persons have been intercepted, all the conversations made by phone, some persons being part of my entourage, others being employed at subordinated institutions and being part of their leadership or chiefs at constructions companies, I repeat, starting August 2010 there is no material evidence in my file to prove these accusations. If we talk about misrepresentation, it’s obvious I couldn’t have mentioned in my declaration of interest and fortune the two apartments which are not mine at the moment,” stated Borbely quoted by Mediafax. The DNA prosecutors mention within the request of lifting Laszlo Borbely’s immunity that the UDMR leader is charged with two misdemeanors of traffic peddling and misrepresentation. The prosecutors say Borbely is the owner of an apartment amounting to EUR 80,000 and another apartment in Targu Mures. The prosecutors have heard one of Borbely’s relatives who is supporting their accusation. At the same time, the prosecutors say the former minister made use of his influence with two clerks with Apele Romane in order to foster two companies for the public auctions. “This was a frequent practice for Laszlo Borbely,” reads the DNA document quoted by Hotnews.For the influence peddling accusation, the DNA prosecutors say they have evidence Laszlo Borbely helped two clerks employed by Apele Romane to foster or even to give contracts on public money to the companies of two businessmen – Ioan Ciocan and Molnar Anton. The prosecutors say the two businessmen have renovated Borbely’s non-declared apartments in exchange to the above-mentioned favour. UDMR considers the penal procedure against Borbely is a politically motivated denigration campaign, the aim being to get rid of one of UDMR leaders who has been one of the most efficient ministers.
