Dorin Marian, former head of ex-PM Calin Popescu Tariceanu’s Chancellery, is being probed by the National Anticorruption Directorate (DNA) for perjury in the legal case concerning the restitution of a part of the Snagov Forest and of the Baneasa Royal Farm. Calin Popescu Tariceanu is being probed in the same legal case.
DNA Brasov prosecutors have started the criminal prosecution against Dorin Marian, former head of the Prime Minister’s Chancellery at the time Calin Popescu Tariceanu held that office, for perjury in what concerns statement made in the legal case that concerns the restitution of a part of the Snagov Forest and of the Baneasa Royal Farm.
DNA claims that Dorin Marian had been subpoenaed to clarify aspects related to the activity carried out by Marius Marcovici, indicted in the said legal case, and had given false statements in this context.
“After taking the oath, on April 28, Marian Dorin made false statements in relation to Marcovici Marius Andrei having been his personal aide at the time he was head of the Chancellery of the Prime Minister. The false statement consists of the fact that although Marcovici Marius Andrei’s capacity as Marian Dorin’s personal aide is shown by the documents included in the case file, which also confirm the fact that the employment contract was a fixed-term contract, namely for the period in which the suspect held the position of head of the Prime Minister’s Chancellery, he denied this fact. In the statement he made under oath, Marian Dorin made claims that do not fit the truth about essential aspects he was queried about, thus seeking to hamper the investigation and the holding accountable of the defendants investigated,” the DNA points out in a press release.
Calin Popescu Tariceanu is being investigated in the same legal case, being accused of perjury and aiding the perpetrator.
Following the accusations brought against him, Senate Speaker Calin Popescu Tariceanu stated he does not doubt that the criminal probe against him will continue, but not “to serve justice,” claiming he is paying the price for being an “inconvenient politician” and that he will not resign from his Senate office.
