Appeal in Nastase’s parole trial set for March 18

The Bucharest Court rejected yesterday a request filed by the lawyers of former premier Adrian Nastase to change the deadline of the appeal filed by prosecutors against the District 4 Court’s decision to release him on parole. Thus, the date remains March 18. “We will see the reasons. The request was rejected and in my opinion we won’t make another request because we won’t even have the necessary time to go through the procedures. I hope March 18 will be the last day of detention for Adrian Nastase,” the former prime minister’s lawyer Ioan Cazacu stated. He pointed out that because of slow court procedures Nastase stood in jail another 73 days after the date that permitted his release on parole. We remind our readers that the District 4 Court decided on February 12 to release the former premier on parole, however the National Anticorruption Office (DNA) filed an appeal against the decision. Adrian Nastase was sentenced to two years in jail in the “Quality Trophy” case on June 20, 2012.
