Ex-Communications Minister Gabriel Sandu questioned by DNA in Microsoft case

Ex-Minister Gabriel Sandu, a suspect in the Microsoft case, yesterday reported to the National Anti-corruption Department (DNA). Sandu is one of the nine former ministers pursued in the Microsoft licensing case.
On October 16, the anti-corruption prosecutors conducted domiciliary searches at Gabriel Sandu, ex-presidential adviser Dorin Marian, ex-chief of Foreign Intelligence Agency, Catalin Harnagea, businessmen Dorin Cocos – Elena Udrea’s ex-husband – , Remus Truica and Nicolae Dumitru, who controls the Niro group of companies, the father of the President of the Olympic Committee, Adrian Petrache, as well as the Dinu Pescariu Foundation. The investigators took documents that could become evidence in the Microsoft case.
In the case, DNA has asked to be allowed to prosecute nine ex-ministers – Senators Serban Mihailescu and Ecaterina Andronescu, MP Valerian Vreme, MEPs Dan Nica, Daniel Funeriu, Alexandru Athanasiu, Mihai Tanasescu, Gabriel Sandu and Adriana Ticau.
According to DNA, the members of the Government, ministries and companies involved in the implementation of the Microsoft licensing project for schools allegedly demanded USD 20 M of the 54 M paid by the Executive in total under the contract.
