The employees of Romstrade, a company owned by Nelu Iordache, a businessman placed under 29-day preventive arrest, started a protest yesterday, ziare.com informs. The employees are angry because they have not been paid for 5 months. Over 50 employees took part in the protest.At the same time, the government will notify the National Anticorruption Directorate (DNA) as a result of the irregularities discovered in the way in which contracts for the Nadlac-Arad and Orastie-Sibiu highways were offered, Dan Vladescu, President of the Authority for the Regulation of Public Procurements (ANRMAP), announced. Three weeks ago the government presented the conclusions of a report drafted by the Premier’s Control Body, a report showing that construction works on national roads and highway are running behind schedule because the construction companies lack the number of employees and equipment that they should have had in line with their contracts and are working simultaneously on several construction sites. The National Highways Company (CNADNR) recently canceled the contract for the first segment of the Nadlac-Arad highway, the main reasons being the delays registered. At the same time, CNADNR announced that it will resume in January the tender for the aforementioned highway segment, after the contract with Nelu Iordache’s Romstrade was canceled, and estimated that the second segment will be completed on time, in April 2013.
