Former cabinet chief of Blejnar, subject of a search warrant

The Criminal Investigations Department of the General Inspectorate of Romanian Police (IGPR) yesterday issued a national arrest warrant against Codrut-Alexandru Marta, the former chief of cabinet of Sorin Blejnar. Police was alerted Friday, May 25, about the disappearance – in suspect circumstances – of Codrut Marta by his wife, who said that she saw her husband for the last time on May 21, 2012. Judiciary sources quoted by Mediafax said that former ANAF president Sorin Blejnar and businessman Elan Schwartzenberg were questioned Monday afternoon by the prosecutors of the High Court of Cassation and Justice about Marta’s disappearance. Judiciary sources, quoted by evz.ro, claim that Codrut Marta was abducted and smuggled out of the country on May 21. The name of Codrut Marta was mentioned in the context of the probe against Peter Attila Racz, send in court last December, together with 15 other defendants, for embezzling some EUR 20 M, through the sale of Euro 5 petrol without paying the excise duties, to companies that operate petrol stations, located in the counties of Sibiu, Botosani and Braila. In this case, the National Agency for Fiscal Administration (ANAF), as legal representative of the Romanian state, sued for a loss of RON 87,386,308.61 (equivalent to more than EUR 20 M), representing excise duties, VAT and profit tax. In view of recovering this loss, prosecutors impounded the oil residues processing facility operated by SC Texas Grup Oyl SRL and the shares in this company.
