Senate Speaker Tariceanu gives up SPP protection

Senate Speker Calin Popescu-Tariceanu on Friday confirmed to AGERPRES that he gave up the services of the Protection and Guard Service (SPP).

On Wednesday, in the beginning of the government meeting, Prime Minister Viorica Dancila announced she chose not to benefit from the SPP protection.

On the same day, Deputy Prime Minister Paul Stanescu claimed that Lucian Pahontu, the SPP head told a “friend” that the PSD leader Liviu Dragnea will be “executed” and he could even take over “the party”.

Tariceanu also stated back then that Prime Minister Viorica Dancila decided to give up the SPP services, while speaking for her entire Cabinet, however he specified that, based on his own experience with the SPP, he only had words of appreciation for this institution and its people.

He showed that “the utility of this institution is unquestionable,” but the the things that were signaled “couldn’t be ignored either.” Subsequently, he said that, in his opinion, SPP should be subordinated to the Ministry of Interior, and not to the head of state.
