The Head of the Directorate for Investigating Organized Crime and Terrorism (DIICOT) Daniel Horodniceanu stated on Wednesday, regarding the DNA case allegedly related to him, which was closed, that simple things are exaggerated, given that anyone can make a denouncement against anyone, provided that person will be liable if things are not true.
“An exaggerated dimension is added to simple things. I can state every day what I stated yesterday. As I said, anyone can have a criminal case anywhere, at some point. Anyone in this country can make a denouncement against anyone, provided that if things are not true, that person is liable for what he or she did”, Daniel Horodniceanu stated.
He said that he didn’t talk to Laura Codruta Kovesi about this case on Wednesday, before the presentation of the result.
Information according to which he is allegedly subject to a DNA investigation on how certain decisions were taken in the case in which businessman Gruia Stoica was investigated in 2006, when Horodniceanu was the head of DIICOT Iasi, was revealed to the public. Meanwhile, this case was allegedly closed.
Daniel Horodniceanu stated on Tuesday, when asked about this information, that he asked the National Anticorruption Directorate to allow him study this file, saying that normally, he should have been announced.
“Yes. I asked to be allowed to study the file, and when things will be clear to me, I will be able to explain them in my turn” Horodniceanu stated at the headquarters of the Justice Ministry.
Also asked by the journalists if it was normal to be announced, and if he expects a more detailed explanation, the DIICOT Head said: “Yes, normally I should have been announced. (…) At first, I will see what’s in that file, and we’ll talk later”.
