Senate starts procedures for appointing new ANI president

The resignation of the former President of the National Integrity Agency (ANI), Horia Georgescu, has reached the Senate Standing Bureau who has alerted the Legal Committee to start procedures for appointing a replacement.

Senate Deputy Speaker Cristian Dumitrescu said on Monday that a new candidate for ANI head would be proposed by the ANI Integrity Council, will then go to the Legal Committee for a report and, in the end, will be voted on in plenary session. Until the appointment of a new head, ANI will be managed by Vice-President Bogdan Stan.

‘We have taken note of the fact that Horia Georgescu has submitted his resignation, we declare the position vacant and will start procedures for appointing a new president of ANI, which will last approximately one month’, Dumitrescu also said.

Horia Georgescu resigned his office as President of ANI after being first detained and then arrested for 30 days in the case where he was accused of approving damages for properties over-valuated by approximately EUR 75 M, together with other former members of the ANRP commission establishing damages to be paid.

Horia Georgescu had been the President of the National Integrity Agency since April 2012, according to Mediafax.
