The Supreme Magistracy Council’s (CSM) Section for Prosecutors admitted on Friday the request lodged by Directorate for the Investigation of Organised Crime and Terrorism (DIICOT) Chief Prosecutor Daniel Horodniceanu, thus allowing him to return to the DIICOT Iasi branch once his term at the helm of the institution expires on May 19.
“The Supreme Magistracy Council’s Section for Prosecutors has decided that prosecutor Daniel Constantin Horodniceanu will continue his activity within the Iasi territorial branch of the Directorate for the Investigation of Organised Crime and Terrorism, starting on 19.05.2018,” reads the decision that the Supreme Magistracy Council’s Section for Prosecutors adopted on Friday after analysing the DIICOT Chief Prosecutor’s request to return to DIICOT Iasi once his current stint at the helm of the institution ends.
Daniel Horodniceanu’s term at the helm of DIICOT is set to expire in May. He was appointed DIICOT Chief Prosecutor three years ago, on May 19. Prior to that, he had been chief prosecutor of DIICOT Iasi since 2012.
Information according to which he was targeted in a DNA dossier that was closed has recently surfaced. Asked for his comment, Daniel Horodniceanu stated that he has asked the National Anticorruption Directorate for permission to study this dossier, adding that it would have been normal for him to be informed of its existence.
