Tender and Niculae cases
DNA says that, in the context where in the spring of 2013, Ovidiu Tender was on trial in a case dealt with by DIICOT, where the indictment was prepared by Alina Bica, the businessman made available, via his lawyers, to Ionut Florentin Mihailescu, former judicial police officer and Alina Bica’s adviser, documents regarding the criminal case for consultation and for obtaining an opinion both from him and from Alina Bica, in order to stand a chance for a favorable solution.
Tender’s case is pending in the Tribunal of Bucharest and Ionut Mihailescu is currently employed by one of Ovidiu Tender’s companies – Prospectiuni S.A.
