Former Prime Minister Emil Boc, the current mayor of Cluj-Napoca, arrived on Wednesday at the headquarters of the National Anticorruption Directorate (DNA) in Bucharest for hearings in connection to a case involving the National Property Restitution Agency (ANRP). Emil Boc was summoned as a witness.
The former Premier stated that he was summoned by prosecutors in order to give a deposition as a witness, without pointing out what the case is about.
Last week, former Justice Minister Catalin Predoiu was heard at the DNA too, stating that he gave a deposition as a witness, in relation to the procedure followed when appointing a Justice Ministry representative within an inter-ministerial working group. According to judicial sources, prosecutors asked Predoiu about the way in which Alina Bica was appointed within ANRP’s Commission for the Assessment of Compensations.
DNA handled five cases that concern illegal and overvalued compensations paid by ANRP. Three of those cases have already been sent to court, while in the other two investigations are still being carried out.
