Prime Minister Victor Ponta has arrived on Friday at the National Anti-corruption Directorate (DNA) headquarters, answering a prosecutor’s request to hear him.
“Mr. Prosecutor Cheseru called me for 11am. At the end I will tell you why and what”, Ponta told journalists before entering the DNA offices. The Prime Minister was accompanied by his lawyer.
“I have the quality of suspect in Sova’s case for my activity as lawyer in 2007-2008 and conflict of interests that I have nominated Sova as minister,” said the Prime Minister upon leaving DNA’s headquarters.
Censure motion fine, political battle in Parliament, not at prosecutors’
Prime Minister Victor Ponta wrote on his Facebook page on Friday that it was “very good” the National Liberal Party – Democratic Liberal Party (PNL-PDL) are submitting a censure motion, because in a democratic country the political battle is fought in Parliament; he emphasized that the current majority is tightly-knit.
“It is very good that PNL-PDL are submitting a censure motion! In a European democratic country the political battle is fought in Parliament (not at DNA or on websites)! The current majority is tightly knit and has important projects to complete in the coming period – the Fiscal Code, the Wage Law, etc.,” Ponta posted.
