DNA officials pointed out that several corporate managers have also been implicated in this case. The companies’ role was to channel public money to the benefit of the defendants. Preliminary investigations show that public funds for service agreements and localities in Neamt County were used by influential public servants from the Piatra Neamt town hall to serve their own interests, as well as the interests of multiple corporate managers.

Romania has survived the first recession and financial crisis in its capitalist history, according to Misu Negritoiu, ING Bank Chairman. In a comment posted on his blog, Negritoiu says economic theory, as it is taught in school, has failed to prevent crises, as monetary policies of banks around the world are converging, which proves once again that strong counter-cyclical monetary and fiscal policies are necessary. He also believes economic development and growth policies by way of foreign private economies are not yet efficient in Romania, since the role of commercial banks and lending policies has not changed significantly. The banker called attention to the fact that unlimited access to foreign currency loans and the financing of real estate developers with extremely flexible lending norms in Romania have led to a dangerous increase in loans, and no action was taken between 2004 and 2008 to stave off this acceleration. According to the chairman of ING Bank, BNR introduced a series of restrictions on foreign currency loans following the outbreak of the crisis, which in turn resulted in massive capital output, narrower external financing, and lower capital input
