Emergency Ordinance to amend the criminal codes was written by Alina Bica, sources say

The draft Emergency Ordinance for amending the Criminal Codes, which drew hundreds of thousands of Romanians in the street, was written by Alina Bica, former head of the Directorate for Investigating Organized Crime and Terrorism (DIICOT), sentenced in the first court in two corruption files, sources close to the situation have told Hotnews.ro. The draft was appropriated by Justice Minister Florin Iordache, who has made several changes.

Bica, former DIICOT head, already has two convictions in the first instance: one to four years in prison, another one to 3 and a half years. She took part to the drafting of the new Criminal Code.

The sources say that currently the major decisions in PSD regarding justice and economy are taken by three individuals with major problems in justice: Liviu Dragnea (sentenced 2 years on parole and is prosecuted in a new file), Alina Bica (two convictions in the first court) and Darius Valcov (accused in three files of corruption).

Alina Bica, former head of the Directorate for Investigating Organized Crime and Terrorism (DIICOT) was sentenced ten days ago to 3 years and 6 months imprisonment for the offense of favouring the offender in connection with interventions for classifying a file in which businessman Horia Simu was involved.

Adriean Videanu, Dorin Cocos, Alin Cocos, Alina Bica and her former adviser Florentin Mihailescu were arrested on January 31, 2015 following the ICCJ decision. The decision was made in Alina Bica’s disjoint case of unlawful compensation from ANRP (Agency for Property Restitution).
