DNA, officially: Senate President is suspected of having received a USD 800,000 bribe. Case file opened at a request from Austrian judicial authorities

de Mariana Bechir , 12.11.2018

The case file in which the DNA requested the waiving of the Senate President’s immunity was opened at the request of Austrian judicial authorities and investigates the situation in which Calin Popescu Tariceanu obtained USD 800,000 representing undue benefits, money suspected to have been used in the electoral campaign.

The case was opened this year and refers to actions from 2007 – 2008, and the money that Calin Popescu Tariceanu received would have been a fee of 10% of the amount from some contract amendments.

DNA announcement:

“Prosecutors conduct an investigation targeting suspicions of committing corruption offenses to cover electoral campaign expenses with amounts from a firm that it is likely to have obtained important commercial contracts from the Romanian state.

The file was constituted in 2018, following the join of three criminal cases, one of which was taken over by DNA prosecutors at the request of the Austrian judicial authorities.

Specifically, a dignitary is likely to have indirectly received, over the period 2007-2008, material benefits worth approx. USD 800,000 from representatives of an Austrian company, in exchange for his efforts made in the exercise of his position, for supporting the conclusion of several amendments on a commercial contract run by the company.

The amount is likely to represent a commission of 10% of the amount from these amending documents and is likely to have been used for the benefit of the dignitary and transferred under fictitious contracts concluded with several offshore companies.

In the case, there are also actions of criminal prosecution carried out against other persons for committing the crime of complicity in bribery, and with regard to the dignitary, currently a senator, according to the legal and constitutional provisions, the criminal prosecution carried out for the crime of bribe is conditioned by obtaining an opinion from the Senate. In this respect, the Chief Prosecutor of the National Anticorruption Directorate sent the necessary documents to the General Prosecutor of the PICCJ for notifying the Senate which is to decide.

The opinion requested for the senator in the criminal file is necessary for conducting a complete criminal investigation and giving him the opportunity to formulate his defence in a legal trial framework.

At this stage of the criminal trial, all persons concerned benefit from the presumption of innocence.
