The Bucharest Court of Appeals (CAB) decided on Monday that former regional development and tourism minister Eduard Hellvig was incompatible. The court thus rejected as baseless Hellvig’s appeal against the evaluation report authored by the National Integrity Agency (ANI) in November 2012. The decision is not final and can be attacked through appeal. In November 2012 ANI established that Hellvig, who was regional development and tourism minister at the time, was incompatible since he was simultaneously minister and director of SC Sintezis Birotica SRL from May 7 to October 31. ANI also claims that from December 20, 2011, to September 14, 2012, Hellvig was hired as political science researcher by SC Dib Media Consultancy SRL, a company that is not listed in the category of research and development companies. ANI notified the Labor Inspection. “It’s a decision far from reality and the documents and evidence I presented both to ANI and the court. In this context, I will continue the trial until my innocence is proven,” Hellvig stated.
