Nastase claims innocence in the Zambaccian case

Former Prime Minister Adrian Nastase gave a statement yesterday in front of the five Supreme Court judges, saying he is innocent and that the evidence in the Zambaccian file does not prove the allegations of the anti-corruption prosecutors. The former Prime Minister said in front of the judges who hear the appeals in the Zambaccian case, that a part of the DNA evidences are not reliable, referring to the fact that the sum of over 100,000 dollars that the prosecutors confiscated from him and about which they say that he had given the former consul Ioan Paun contains banknotes that were issued by the Unites States Treasury after the moment when the investigators say that the deeds were committed. Nastase also said that he had never blackmailed the former Romanian consul in China, Ioan Paun, and that that sum of money was given to him so that he can bring for his family certain treatments from the Chinese doctors. During the yesterday trial, Dana Nastase was supposed to speak too, but she could not come because of some medical problems. The Supreme Court has suspended the meeting for the time being and they will hear some other people involved in the case.
