PNL requests abolition of three secret services not part of the National Intelligence Community

Ludovic Orban, first vice-president of the National Liberal Party ( PNL), proposes the abolition of the three secret services that are not part of the National Intelligence Community, lying under the control of the President: the Protection and Guard Service (SPP), the Special Telecommunications Service (STS) and the General Intelligence and Internal Protection Directorate (DGIPI) within the Ministry of Interior, reports DCNews.ro.

DGIPI, STS and SPP are the only special services that are not part of the National Intelligence Community, institution under presidential control since 2005.


According to the Liberal leader, in Romania act more services than the country needs. “Yes, there are too many with  many employees. They generate men bound by services (…) difficult to control. And they do not fulfill their objectives, but tend to be privatized. (…) We have the Interior Ministry’s secret service  unregulated by law. (…) I do not see any reason to keep  the STS and SPP, ” Ludovic Orban  told Adevarul Live.

” This issue could be addressed at the CSAT level but also in Parliament. (…) A  serious analysis and discussion on the efficiency, performance and results of these intelligence services should take place, “, Mihăiţă Calimente, chairman of the parliamentary commission on the Foreign Intelligence Service (SIE) control told Digi24.” Mr Orban, one is to sing cuckoo in Bucovina and another to talk about secret services. Merging some services can generate irreversible effects on national security, “says Daniel Savu, member of the parliamentary commission on the Romanian Intelligence Service (SRI)  control.
