Black Cube file: Israelis sign agreement with DIICOT, to be sentenced on parole

Weiner Ron and Geclowicz David, the two Black Cube employees under investigation for trying to intimidate DNA chief Laura Codruta Kovesi, reportedly have signed an agreement with DIICOT admitting guilt and are to be sentenced to three years on parole, judicial sources say.

The quoted sources say the two Israelis admitted to their deeds and the agreement has been forwarded to the Bucharest Court.

Weiner Ron and Geclowicz David have been under remand for several months for setting up an organised criminal group, illegal access to an IT system, unauthorised transfer of data, illegal operations with software and devices. They were later freed and currently are under judicial control.

Two other individuals are under investigation in the same file: Yossi Barkshtein, Israeli citizen (not found by the prosecutors) and Daniel Dragomir, former Romanian Intelligence Service (SRI) officer, former chief of the Directorate General for Preventing and Combating Terrorism, under remand for allegedly mediating the connection between those intending to get information about Laura Codruta Kovesi and the Black Cube employees. Daniel Dragomir is prosecuted by DNA for corruption.

The general manager of Black Cube, Dan Zorella, reportedly said in his deposition in the Black Cube spying file on June 27 that the former intelligence officer Daniel Dragomir had asked the Jewish private intelligence company to investigate corruption suspicions against the anti-corruption chief prosecutor, Laura Codruta Kovesi.

According to Zorella, Dragomir would have said that the operation was endorsed by the Romanian Presidency and the Romanian Intelligence Service (SRI). President Klaus Iohannis strongly denied this version, saying it is mere speculation.
