DIICOT head’s husband gets suspended prison sentence

Former police officer Dan Hosu, the husband of the head of the Directorate for Investigating Organized Crime and Terrorism (DIICOT), Giorgiana Hosu, was condemned on Thursday by the Bucharest Tribunal to a suspended 3-year sentence in the ‘Carpatica Asig’ case, for instigation to illegal access to an information system and instigation to using information not meant to be public.

The court’s decision is not final.

President Klaus Iohannis said on Wednesday that in the event of a conviction in the case of the husband of the head of DIICOT, Giorgiana Hosu, there will be, for sure, consequences.

“If a conviction arises, it will certainly not go unnoticed. That is, so to speak, “obvious.” (…) If this scenario becomes reality, (…) I will not wait for others to move things around,” said the head of state, at the Cotroceni Palace, according to Agerpres.

According to the court’s decision, Dan Hosu was sentenced to two years and six months detention for inciting illegal access to a computer system and one year and six months detention for inciting the use of non-public information or allowing unauthorized access to such information. The two sentences were merged, resulting in a 3-year suspended prison sentence, with a period of supervision of three years and six months.

On the other hand, Dan Hosu was acquitted of influence peddling and bribery.
