Hearings in Voiculescu’s case postponed for Feb 5

The panel of three judges of the High Court to whom Dan Voiculescu’s case regarding the privatisation of ICA had been allocated decided on Thursday that the case should be heard by the High Court panel that had originally dealt with it and set the following court date for February 5. Judges Ionut Matei, Luminita Zglimbea and Cristina Rotaru said on Thursday that, under the law, the continuity of the panel should be ensured. The Court explained that Dan Voiculescu’s corruption case in connection with the privatisation of the Food Research Institute (ICA) should be heard by the panel of judges that had initially received it, before being sent to the Bucharest Tribunal, and set the following court date for February 5, with a panel made up of judges Corina Jijiie, Lavinia Lefterache and Mariana Ghena. The trial of the ICA privatisation where Dan Voiculescu is a defendant was resumed on Thursday after the High Court of Cassation and Justice had, on January 16, sustained the anti-corruption prosecutors’ request to expedite proceedings in the case and changed the initial date of April 25.
