Alin and Dorin Cocos, Videanu and Alina Bica indicted in bribery and corruption case

Alina Bica’s case, disjoined from the case concerning the illegal restitution at the National Authority for the Restitution of Property (ANRP), in which Adriean Videanu, Dorin and Alin Cocos are investigated, has been sent by the DNA to the High Court of Justice (ICCJ).

For the time being the judges have not set the date on which they will verify the preventive measures ordered for those involved in this case.

In this second case involving Alina Bica, businessman Dorin Cocos is accused of influence peddling and active bribery, and his son Alin Cocos of active bribery and influence peddling, for allegedly intervening with the ANRP commission Alina Bica was part of, in order for businessman Gheorghe Stelian to receive, in 2011, damages for a plot of land that was overpriced by more than EUR 62 M. In this case the court issued preventive arrest warrants for Alina Bica (photo), her former advisor Florentin Mihailescu, Dorin and Alin Cocos, while former Economy Minister Adriean Videanu is investigated while under judicial control.

Adriean Videanu is accused of being an accessory to malfeasance in office, after Alina Bica lifted the distraint placed on 80 shares he owned, a distraint that had been ordered by the prosecutor handling the Romgaz-Interagro case in which Videanu was investigated, by issuing an ordinance from her position as chief prosecutor of DIICOT and thus violating the legal provisions concerning her prerogatives.

In the case disjoined from the ANRP restitution case, Alina Bica is also accused of allegedly helping Ovidiu Tender to obtain a favourable solution in the Rafo-Carom case.

On 15 December 2014, Alina Bica was sued by anticorruption prosecutors in another case, being accused of approving in favour of businessman Gheorghe Stelian, from her position as Justice Ministry representative within the ANRP’s Central Commission for Damage Assessment, damages for a plot of land that was overpriced by more than EUR 62 M.
