Marin Condescu, the chairman of the Administration Board of Pandurii Targu Jiu Sports Club, was brought yesterday at the Prosecution’s Office of the Gorj Tribunal in order to be heard in the file in which he has been detained for 24 hours for fraud, embezzlement, forgery of documents, money laundering. Condescu refused to speak to the press.
Marin Condescu has been held in custody Tuesday night for 24 hours, after being heard at the headquarters of the County Police Inspectorate. According to Gorj police officers, Marin Condescu is accused of fraud, embezzlement, forgery in deeds by private signature, forgery and money laundering. The police checked the documents based on which Marin Condescu has obtained loans from banks to lend the Pandurii Targu Jiu Sports Club, as well as the documents based on which Condescu recovered the money from the club. According to quoted sources, the investigation revealed that Marin Condescu would have received an additional amount of nearly RON 200,000, whereas Marin Condescu told Mediafax three days ago that he would have about 200,000 to recover from the club.
Condescu was heard in this case on October 8, his lawyer stating at that time that it is a criminal case opened against Condescu that regards the manner in which the company that used to provide meal vouchers to miners and energy experts signed a debt assignment agreement worth RON 1.7 million with the football team. Condescu’s lawyer stated that the file also includes the complaint concerning the way Marin Condescu would have lent the club RON 2.2 million in the spring of 2012. Subsequently, Condescu said that he has taken out loans worth EUR 1.9 million over the last years to help the team in difficult financial times, the loans being obtained by pledging to banks his properties or the properties of some sponsors financing the club.
Trade union leader Viorel Temelescu, the former vice president of Pandurii Targu Jiu Sports Club, was also held in custody late on Tuesday in the same file, for complicity to fraud and forgery.
