PNL Co-President Alina Gorghiu heard in bribery case

PNL Co-President Alina Gorghiu was heard on Monday at the Bucharest Court of Appeals, as a witness in the case in which Mihail Vlasov, President of the Romanian Chamber of Commerce and Industry, was arraigned for corruption. Vlasov is accused of allegedly giving a bribe to an MP in order for the latter to file a certain draft law.

“I maintain the statement I gave at the prosecutor’s office. I don’t know who worked on this draft, I don’t know who its initiator is. Two such drafts were on Parliament’s agenda. I know Mr. Vlasov, I know him as President of the Romanian Chamber of Commerce and Industry. The communication with him was institutional, we were not talking more than two or three times a year. I signed the endorsement of the draft. I browsed through the draft, but did not read it in detail. The draft was rejected within the commissions and within the plenum. I didn’t monitor it closely,” Alina Gorghiu told the Bucharest Court of Appeals judges.

“I am sorry that a parliamentary initiative is the topic of such a trial. (…) I did my duty, I gave this testimony,” Alina Gorghiu said when leaving the Court of Appeals.

According to the case file sent to the judges, the initiators of the draft law were: Lower Chamber MP Aurel Vainer, Lower Chamber MP Alina Gorghiu, Senator Klarik Laslo-Attila, Lower Chamber MP Attila Marko, Lower Chamber MP Mircea Grosaru and Lower Chamber MP Florin Iordache.
