Journalist Ovidiu Ohanesian heard at DNA: “Armament is the case that will shake Romania to its core”

Ovidiu Ohanesian, one of the journalists kidnapped in Iraq in 2005, was summoned at the National Anticorruption Directorate (DNA) on Monday in order to be heard.

When leaving the DNA, the journalist stated that he was heard as a witness in the case concerning the kidnapping of the journalists in Iraq and the “Armament” case.

“I came because they summoned me as a witness. They asked me about Mr. Mohamad Yassin and I told them how I met him and what happened in the Iraq kidnapping case and the Armament case in which Mohamad Yassin was involved and which were classified. As a result, it would be very difficult for investigators to find what they are interested in unless the two cases are declassified. They classified the organized crime which characters you sometimes see on television are members of,” Ovidiu Ohanesian stated.

Referring to the “Armament” case, the journalist stated that the investigation will be wide-ranging. “The case that will shake Romania to its core is the “Armament” case. There you will find influence peddling, terrorism, arms trafficking, cigarettes trafficking and the way these people made the transactions. It has come to the point of working with state institutions in the worst possible way. I have told the prosecutor that before anything else it is necessary to declassify the two cases,” Ovidiu Ohanesian added.
