Nastase, at appeal court over hospitalization days

Adrian Nastase was brought to the Bucharest Court of Appeal (CAB) yesterday morning over his application to have his hospitalization days at Floreasca Hospital for his suicide attempt subtracted from his two year prison sentence over the “Quality Trophy” case file. The CAB yesterday upheld the Bucharest Tribunal Oct 2 ruling according to which the hospital days, June 20-26, shall not be included in Adrian Nastase’s prison term, a verdict which the former premier had challenged on appeal. Adrian Nastase, who was brought to the CAB by prison guards at 9.00 am, said that the issue is a matter of principle, as: “It was the morgue where I wanted to get to, and not have my conviction delayed “. “What we are talking here is the fair enforcement of the law. Two matters of principle have been raised with respect to this appeal. One was clearly stated by Mr. President, who said that nobody could add extra time to a legally-passed sentence, and the other refers to the constitutionality of the stipulations in art 87, paragraph 3, the thesis according to which, were a convict to willingly caused his disease, that would not count to the length of the sentence, an unconstitutional text,” said Adrian Nastase’s lawyer, Ion Cazacu.
