The High Court of Cassation and Justice (ICCJ) admitted on Saturday Elena Udrea’s request to attend on Monday the Chamber of Deputies’ sitting that will debate and vote on two requests to prosecute and remand her on new counts in the Bute Boxing Gala case.
“The request I filed to be allowed to take the floor before the Chamber of Deputies plenary was approved, therefore Monday I will be there to express my point of view. This is still an exceptional situation, as this is the seventh or eighth request the anticorruption prosecutors file against me in two weeks,” Udrea said upon leaving today the Supreme Court premises.
Asked to comment on the charges she faces in the Bute Gala case, that she allegedly organized her birthday party on bribe money, Udrea replied this is no reason for yet another request to detain her.
“Just as you assumingly learned this spicy detail from sources, I think it would be interesting if the same sources let you know about the latest developments in the case, which turn the tables in my favor,” Elena Udrea remarked cuttingly.
Udrea has been under house arrest since February 17, a measure ordered against her in the “Microsoft” illegal licensing case and which replaced a previous remand measure.
The Chamber of Deputies will debate and vote on Monday, at 16:00, on two requests of the National Anti-corruption Directorate (DNA) to remand and prosecute Elena Udrea on new counts in the Bute Gala case.
DNA seeks this approval in connection with three bribe-accepting crimes Udrea has supposedly committed during her term as Minister of Regional Development and Tourism, Agerpres informs.
