Rosca Stanescu one step away from leaving PNL

The leadership of the party ruled to oust the Senator. The Permanent Delegation will have the final say.

The leadership of PNL decided yesterday, in a meeting of the Permanent National Bureau (BPN) held at the Palace of the Parliament, to expel senator Sorin Rosca Stanescu (SRS) from the party, after he accused President Traian Basescu of money laundering, using documents that were declared as forged, realitatea.net reports. According to the source, the decision was made by secret vote. Under the Statute of PNL, the ousting decision made by the BPN will be voted by the Permanent Delegation of the Liberals. “Regardless what they will decide, I remain a Liberal and support PNL and Crin Antonescu. Of course, the fact that the authenticity of these documents is not confirmed is a defeat for me. I say that we should wait for a probe, but we have no probe and only a document which says that payment has been made – this is about archived accounts,” Rosca Stanescu said after the vote. The proposal to oust the senator from the party came from the president of PNL, Crin Antonescu.
Sorin Rosca Stanescu made public several documents, which he claimed proved that the president used illegal funding in the electoral campaign of 2004. He mentioned that, at that time, USD 7 M was transferred from abroad to the bank account of the DA alliance. Subsequently, the Prosecutor’s Office of the High Court of Cassation and Justice (PICCJ) announced that the documents unveiled by SRS are forged. Prosecutors found out that the bank operations “are not real” and were not made, after the Office against Money Laundering investigated this case. Furthermore, President Basescu said that Sorin Rosca Stanescu is “a stupid liar” who “does not take the forgery until its very end.” Basescu also sued the liberal MEP for the statements against him.
