Prosecutors with the National Anti-Corruption Directorate (DNA) have ordered a lien on the mobile and immovable assets of MPs Nicolae Paun and Madalin Voicu (photo) as well as other defendants in a case of fraud involving European funds for programmes for persons in distress.
In a press statement released on Tuesday, DNA says its prosecutors have ordered a lien on the mobile and immovable assets of several persons that are either a suspect of indicted: Nicolae Paun – up to 30.5 million lei; Madalin Voicu -up to 411,000 lei; Carmen Olteanu – up to 194,000 lei; Gheorghe Ivan – up to 12.4 million lei; Vasilica Grigore – up to 676,000 lei; Valentin Pepenel – 460,000 lei; Iulian Costel Paraschiv – up to 14.9 million lei; Irina Valeria Radu – up to 27.2 million lei; Florentina Rotariu – up to 27.2 million lei.
A line was also ordered on movable and immovable assets of Niky Scorpion Alcom SRL up to 3,220,000 lei.
“The lien was ordered to avoid concealing or giving away of moveable and immovable assets by the persons mentioned above to be a guarantee that the damage inflicted by their offences is repaired,” says DNA.
Madalin Voicu is accused of influence peddling, misrepresentation and money laundering (all recurrent).
Pro-Europa Roma Party Association President Nicolae Paun is accused in the same case, among other things, of misrepresentation that resulted in the illegal obtainment of European funds and embezzlement.
Judges with the High Court of Cassation and Justice (ICCJ) on Saturday approved the National Anticorruption Directorate (DNA) request on the 30-day pre-trial arrest of MP Nicolae Paun, chairman of “Pro Europa” Roma Party Association, prosecuted for corruption offenses related to the conduct of some projects on European funds.
