Chamber of Deputies: Law committee rejects DNA request on criminal investigation of former minister Plumb

The law committee of the Chamber of Deputies on Monday rejected the request of the National Anti-corruption Directorate (DNA) regarding the start of the criminal investigation on former Environment minister Rovana Plumb.

There were 14 votes in favour of rejecting the DNA request and 9 votes against rejecting the request, National Liberal Party (PNL) MP Ioan Cupsa announced.

The committee’s report is going to be voted on in the Tuesday plenary meeting of the Chamber of Deputies.

DNA chief prosecutor Laura Codruta Kovesi asked for the notification of the Chamber of Deputies in connection with the request to conduct the criminal investigation on Rovana Plumb, former Environment and Climate Change minister at the time of the offense, in respect to complicity to abuse of office, in a case that also involves Sevil Shhaideh, referring to moving a part of the Belina Island and the Danube Pavel Branch under the administration of the Teleorman County Council.
