Head off Bucharest Airports Comp sacked following Japanese student murder

Transport Minister Ovidiu Silaghi sacked Cornel-Constantin Poterasu, director of the Bucharest National Airports Company (CNAB), over the situation created at the Henri Coanda Airport, romanialibera.ro reports. CNAB officials said the decision was related to the illegal taxi practices at the airport, which led to the incident that resulted in the killing of the young Japanese female student.
The new CNAB CEO is Smadu Cristinel. The illegal taxi practices were examined by the Airport Security Committee meeting at the Ministry of  Transport and Infrastructure (MTI) late last week. Nearly two weeks ago, a Japanese young woman was accosted at the “Henri Coanda” Airport, and taken into a cab to the outskirts of the Corbeanca forest near Bucharest, where she was robbed and killed.
Separately, the Public Ministry yesterday announced that the DNA samples collected from the left hand and the anorak of Japanese female student Yurika M, who was raped, killed and robbed, belong to Nicolae Vlad, the prime suspect in the case, Mediafax reports. Prosecutors at the Criminal Investigation and Criminalistics of the Prosecutor’s Office of the High Court of Cassation and Justice (ICCJ) are already in possession of two of the DNA test results. Prosecutors also identified Vlad’s DNA on the underwear of  Maria S, another woman raped and robbed by Vlad. Two relatives of the victims were heard yesterday, with the hearings to continue in the next couple of days.
