Former Romanian President Traian Basescu wrote on Facebook on Wednesday that documents from the file prepared by the National Council for the Study of Securitate Archives (CNSAS) and forwarded to the Bucharest Court of Appeal in order to decide if he was a collaborator of Securitate or not, have been disclosed to the press. Basescu appreciates that CNSAS, in its current structure, has become a politicized institution.
In a Facebook post on his page, former Romanian President Traian Basescu made on Wednesday certain references to the “Press campaign generated by the CNSAS decision”.
“I find that from the file prepared by CNSAS and forwarded to CAB in order to decide if I was a collaborator of Securitate as political police or not, documents have been disclosed to the press. Part of the press, in the line of the already established tradition, is trying to establish that I am guilty before the court, hoping that it will be able to influence the court’s verdict by creating a public pressure on judges. Moreover, so called victims whose rights haven’t been affected, are called to take action in order to justify a denigration campaign that is hard to justify”, the former head of state wrote.
Basescu says that the moment of the press campaign was well chosen.
“The attacks have been started during the electoral campaign and they continue now, in the middle of the process for negotiating the configuration of the political structure of the European Parliament”, Basescu added.
He also said that he is sure he will receive a favorable verdict.
“Hoping that the trial pending at CAB – the Department for Administrative and Fiscal Complaints will be solved as soon as possible according to the law, and given the reality of the facts and laws, I express my conviction that I will benefit from a favorable verdict, despite the statements made by CNSAS, which I find far-fetched and affected by political interests. I believe that CNSAS, in its current structure, has become a politicized institution, willing, for the first time since it was founded, to engage in political games”, the former Romanian President also wrote on Facebook.
