Private televisions Antena 1, Antena 3 notified on eviction by tax authority

Private TV stations Antena 1 and Antena 3 got a five-day eviction notice on Monday from the Bucharest Public Finances Regional General Directorate.

The eviction enforces a criminal sentence of 2013 against Dan Voiculescu, a former senator and owner of the two TV stations, convicted to a 10-year prison term in a case of fraudulent privatization of a research institute. The sentence included the confiscation of Voiculescu’s real estate to cover his share of prejudices of 60 million euros.

The National Tax Administration Agency (ANAF) faced the legal opposition of the Voiculescu family to the confiscation; Dan Voiculescu had transferred his ownership of the TV stations and other businesses to family members.

On February 2, the National Anticorruption Directorate – who had prosecuted Dan Voiculescu – has opened a case against ANAF for failure to enforce the court sentence, as explicitly allowed by the Bucharest Court of Appeals a week earlier.

A release of the ANAF on Monday mentions that the five-day term for eviction is stipulated by the Civil Code.
