Suspended president Traian Basescu launched a virulent attack on Romanian media moguls during a television interview. “The plan to suspend the Romanian President in order to end up controlling the judiciary, because this is their final goal, was thoroughly discussed in Greece, during the May 1 holiday, by Voiculescu and his main flunkeys from his media trust. They didn’t hesitate discussing directly on the beach. The coup was prepared a long time before from a media point of view with all the lackeys from the Intact trust,” Basescu stated. Traian Basescu claims that Dan Voiculescu’s (founding president of the Conservative Party and owner of the Intact media group) goal is to buy his freedom. The suspended president also claimed that he was contacted by Romania TV owner Sebastian Ghita whom he described as “a gentleman that lives on public funds and does politics in order to blackmail politicians.” “If I get back in office you will lose a lot of contracts with the state, son. You can’t use state funds to blackmail a president,” Basescu warned.
