Senate Speaker heard as witness at DNA

Senate Speaker Calin Popescu Tariceanu announced he will show up at DNA Brasov on Friday, to be heard as a witness in the case concerning the illegal retrocession of the Baneasa Royal Farm and of 47 hectares of forest in Snagov. Senate Speaker Calin Popescu Tariceanu announced he will show up at the DNA Brasov on Friday, in order to be heard as a witness in a corruption case. The Senate Speaker pointed out in a press release on Thursday that he was invited at the hearings by phone, to be heard as a witness in case file 259/p/2015.

“I want to inform the press that, as a show of respect for legal provisions concerning the confidentiality of the investigation, I will not make any statements on my arrival at and departure from the DNA office,” Calin Popescu Tariceanu stated.

The Senate Speaker added that he usually promptly informs the press about his activities of public interest, such as his presence at the DNA to be heard as a witness.

“This time, I deliberately kept this information secret, in order to verify whether DNA workers leak confidential information to the press. A short while ago, I was contacted by members of the press who asked me: “is it true that you have been invited at DNA Brasov?” Q.E.D., so I decided to release this communiqué,” Tariceanu pointed out.

Calin Popescu Tariceanu will be heard in a case in which crimes related to the illegal retrocession of the Baneasa Royal Farm and of 47 hectares of forest in Snagov are being probed.

Remus Truica, Paul Philippe of Romania, Marius Marcovici (Tariceanu’s former advisor), journalist Dan Andronic, three Israeli citizens and other persons are investigated in this case.
