MP Ion Stan: I won’t resign because I don’t consider myself guilty

PSD MP Ion Stan, whom National Anticorruption Directorate (DNA) prosecutors have charged with intercession, stated on Thursday that he will not resign from Parliament because he does not consider himself guilty. The statements were made at the end of the meeting held by PSD’s Lower Chamber group, meeting in which it was decided with a majority of votes to approve Stan’s preventive arrest. “I told the colleagues present at the meeting that I will respect the whole parliamentary procedure because I’m not obstructing justice in any way and if the DNA has evidence it should send my file to court. I have no reason to resign from Parliament because I don’t consider myself guilty. I will respect all judiciary procedures and will prove my innocence in the court of law,” Stan stated. PSD’s Lower Chamber group decided with a majority of votes to approve Ion Stan’s preventive arrest, group leader Marian Neacsu pointed out.“We had a small group meeting. We took note of the materials sent – the Justice Minister’s letter, the Juridical Commission’s report – and the group’s point of view will be presented on Wednesday’s plenum meeting. It was decided with a majority of votes to approve the DNA prosecutors’ request,” Neacsu stated. He pointed out that some of his colleagues noticed the existence of “mistakes” in the report drafted by the prosecutors handling the case but underlined that the Social-Democrat MPs did not consider them liable to change the group’s decision which is based on the desire to avoid obstructing the process.
