Vasile Blaga’s son-in-law has been arraigned, while on conditional bail, in the case in which he is investigated for tax evasion. Prosecutors accuse Andrei Ionut Rudeanu of tax evasion of EUR 600,000.
The PDL President’s son-in-law won his first public contract just three months after his company received the authorization to offer security services. Ionut Rudeanu, a dental surgeon by trade, entered the business world in 2009, after he married Vasile Blaga’s daughter. He won his first contract from the National Highways Company (CNADNR). Two months later Vasile Blaga’s son-in-law won another contract from the National Pit Coal Company (CNH).
Overall, in five months’ time Ionut Rudeanu’s company won EUR 10 M from public funds, according to ‘Romania Libera’ daily. In the context in which the state-owned companies that awarded the contracts were subordinated to ministries that had Vasile Blaga’s colleagues Radu Berceanu (Transport Minister) and Adriean Videanu (Economy Minister) at their helm.
Thus, in May 2010 CNADNR awarded a RON 3 M contract to the association formed by Axis Corporate Security and Nei Guard companies, for security services offered to the Timisoara Roads and Bridges Regional Branch. The two companies won the tender despite being runners-up. EPS, the company that finished the tender on first place, filed an appeal, complaining that it was disqualified because the Timisoara Regional Branch considered it had failed to meet the deadline. As a result, the EPS bid was rejected and Vasile Blaga’s son-in-law was declared the winner, ‘Kamikaze’ showed in 2010.
