Apuseni air crash, on Parliament’s agenda

The air crash in which a small plane crashed in the Apuseni Mountains on January 20 will be on the agenda of the first meeting of the Chamber of Deputies’ Standing Bureau in the upcoming session that starts in February, Lower House Speaker Valeriu Zgonea announced on Monday, adding that the lawmakers will try to find a solution so that such incidents may never repeat. ‘Parliament can hold a debate, establish a subcommittee within the Defence Committee, it may establish a special committee of inquiry to have a documented report, I cannot take a decision otherwise than in agreement with the leaders of the parliamentary political groups and this subject will definitely be on the agenda of the first meeting of the Standing Bureau,’ Zgonea told Agerpres. In turn, Chairman of the Senate Defence Committee Corneliu Dobritoiu said that the committee he is heading will discuss the air tragedy as well. Meanwhile, Alba Iulia Court of Appeal started to hear witnesses in this case, more locals and members of the rescue teams coming yesterday for hearings. Co pilot Razvan Petrescu, severely injured in the air crash underwent new legs and nose surgeries on Monday. In a different move, the Ministry of Interior found a first solution for having efficient location services, as it signed yesterday a 3-year contract under which the companies 2K Telecom and Vodafone Romania will provide it with telecommunication services worth RON 47.6 M (EUR 10.5 M) in view of getting the units and employees of the institution connected to the internal network.
