Ponta contradicts DNA: No damage to Romanian State; Sova didn’t pay 51,000 lei, but I did

Prime Minister Victor Ponta on Wednesday evening said that the Romanian state sustained no damage, as the 51,000 lei fees mentioned in the fiscal and accounting expertise repirt in his court case, were paid by him and not by Dan Sova.
“From the expertise, from everything that was filed in the case, it results the following: the National Anticorruption Directorate (DNA) accuses Mr Sova of not having paid 51,000 lei in fees under the contract concluded with me, and, at the same time, the expertise shows very clearly that I paid those fees, the 51,000 lei. Now, the Romanian state sustained no damage, because Sova didn’t pay 51,000 lei, I, Victor Ponta, paid these fees. In this respect, the DNA says, ‘Sova didn’t pay.’ This is correct. The DNA is right. But I paid. In the end, both I and the prosecutor are saying the same thing,” Ponta said in a call-in to Romania TV private television broadcaster on Wednesday evening.
The National Anticorupption Directorate (DNA) on Wednesday informed that according to the expertise report the damage following the offense of complicity to tax evasion PM Victor Ponta is charged with amounts to over 51,300 lei.
According to a DNA release, this damage consists of fiscal obligations avoided by contributor SCA “Sova si Asociatii”, represented by Dan Sova, with the aid of Victor Ponta, as representative of “Ponta Victor-Viorel” Individual Lawyer Cabinet.
Victor Ponta is investigated for document forgery under private signature, complicity to continued tax evasion and money laundering, in his capacity as lawyer, and Dan Sova is investigated for document forgery under private signature, continued tax evasion and money laundering.
