Businessman Remus Truica was heard by Directorate for the Investigation of Organized Crime and Terrorism (DIICOT) prosecutors on Thursday morning in the case concerning the fraudulent BRD loans.
DIICOT indicted him for setting up an organized crime group, malfeasance in office, instigating malfeasance in office and being an accessory to money laundering.
Remus Truica has been placed under judicial control and his assets (bank accounts, plots of lands and buildings, including a house in Snagov) have been frozen in order to cover the sum of EUR 35 M.
According to DIICOT, an organized crime group was set up at the end of 2007 at the level of the executive leadership of BRD in order to offer loans to individual and corporate clients while breaking the crediting norms. Seventeen loans were fraudulently offered that way. Remus Truica benefitted from 15 of them. The damage caused to BRD totals approximately EUR 43.5 M. The loans have not been repaid.
