Appeal against Nastase’s conditional release to be heard today

The Prosecution’s appeal against the conditional release of ex-PM Adrian Nastase will be heard by the Bucharest Tribunal today, court officials assuring there will be no postponement after the arrest of judges Dinu and Costache, as every department had an on-call panel of judges for unforeseeable situations. The term of March 18 was set by the Bucharest Tribunal on March 4, after the court had received the case from the Courthouse of Sector 4. Viorica Dinu and Antonela Costache who were going to be in the panel of judges hearing the appeal against the early release from prison of the former premier, were arrested on Friday by order of the Court of Appeal in a bribery and influence peddling case in connection with various criminal proceedings including Dinel Nutu’s (ex-Staicu)Bucharest Tribunal President Laura Andre told Mediafax after the arrest of the two judges, on Thursday, that Nastase’s release case and the one regarding the privatisation of the Food Research Institute would be heard as planned, each department having an on-call penal of judges for unpredictable situations, which may deal with any case as required. On Sunday, the former prime minister was visited by his two sons, Andrei Nastase saying he hoped that was the last time he was visiting his father in prison and that he could think of no reason for the hearings to be postponed.
