Stan case inherited by new Parliament

The members of the lower chamber of Parliament could not make a decision on the prosecutors’ request to be allowed to put PSD MP Ion Stan in custody on remand, as the minimum required turnout was not met. The chamber speaker said the Legal Committee report was going to be migrated to the agenda of the new Parliament. The chamber sitting that was going to discuss the prosecutors’ request to be allowed to arrest MP Stan could not take place as only 103 MPs were attending. ‘The draft decision stays on the agenda of the new Parliament and will be entered as a priority item,’ Zgonea said. Chamber Speaker Valeriu Zgonea had said that, should there be no quorum yesterday, the subject of withdrawing MP Ion Stan’s immunity would be put as a priority on the agenda of the following Legislative, because no additional documents were needed from the Ministry of Justice. He explained that, under the Regulation, the draft decision on the Stan case would be flagged as a priority on the new Parliament’s agenda. Ion Stan has just won a seat in the new Legislative. According to investigators, PSD MP Ion Stan allegedly asked the person who reported on him, businessman Nicusor Dan, to pay him ‘two million, for petrol’ for each of the 600 cars he was going to use in the election campaign. Dima, on his part, estimates the total sum is ‘a billion, one billion two hundred’. According to the report sent by DNA to the Chamber of Deputies, asking to be allowed to arrest MP Ion Stan, the prosecutors say the MP had benefited from material benefits from the person who denounced him. Telephone transcripts show Ion Stan asking his denouncer to give him financial assistance during the election campaign. He also noted that, in 2009, he had paid for over 155,000 red buckets that were given as gifts in the European parliamentary election campaign. In exchange for the money, Stan promised – according to prosecutors – to award the businessman various government contracts. Following the request of the minister of justice, the Legal Affairs Committee of the Chamber of Deputies have a positive opinion on remanding Ion NineStan in custody, but the chamber has been unable to convene to take a vote in the matter.
