DNA’s Kovesi: A matter of time until former MP Sebastian Ghita gets caught

The Chief Prosecutor of the National Anti-corruption Directorate (DNA), Laura Codruta Kovesi declared on Wednesday that it is “a matter of time” until the former Member of the Parliament, Deputy Sebastian Ghita gets caught, explaining that several leads are being followed by DNA in that respect.

“I believe it to be a matter of time before Sebastian Ghita gets caught. At least we, at DNA, are checking some information in that direction. We are waiting for the Romanian Police to get involved, to allocate resources and make it a priority to catch this defendant. We will see whether he has left the country or not. (…) We firstly rely on the national police of 190 states. Right now, the defendant Sebastian Ghita is under international pursuit on the territory of 190 states in the world,” said Kovesi at the private radio broadcaster Europa FM.

A warrant in absence and a European warrant were issued on Sebastian Ghita’s name after his disappearance without a trace on December 21, 2016.
