Alleged acts of corruption at the Ministry of Economy

Prosecutors launched an investigation at the Ministry of Economy regarding alleged acts of corruption, rtv.net reports, adding that the probe targets Remus Vulpescu, advisor to the minister of Economy and former chief of the Office for Privatisation (OPSPI) of the Ministry of Economy, and Ioana Apan, deputy secretary general in the same ministry. The two are suspected of having received from officials of Fondul Proprietatea (FP) money in offshore accounts, paid holidays and luxury automobiles leased by the fund. According to the TV channel, there are also FP employees under investigation: fund manager Greg Konieczny and Oana Truta, FP’s representative in the Supervisory Board of Hidroelectrica. Moreover, FP proposed Vulpescu as its representative in the Supervisory Board of Hidroelectrica. This actually means that a former employee of the Ministry of Economy was about to be paid for representing FP in relation with his former employer. “I received no form of advantage. (…) Nobody made me personally any proposal, there were formal documents after I had resigned from OPSPI. The fund proposed me for the Supervisory Board of Hidroelectrica, knowing that I was resigning,” Remus Vulpescu reacted to the accusations.
