Blaga: Videanu resigned from PNL Bucharest Chairman office
National Liberal Party (PNL) Co-Chairman Vasile Blaga on Saturday said that Adriean Videanu resigned from the chairman office of the Liberals’ organisation in Bucharest, as his party membership was also suspended, after he was placed under preventive arrest, Agerpres informs.
“Things are clear. He is suspended from the party member position, but he also sent his resignation from the chairman office of our organisation in Bucharest. He is suspended from the party member position,” Blaga told journalists when asked if Videanu resigned.
The statement was made before the beginning of the PNL National Council meeting, at the Palace of Parliament.
Former Economy Minister Adriean Videanu was placed under preventive arrest on Saturday morning, together with former Directorate for the Investigation of Organised Crime and Terrorism (DIICOT) head Alina Bica, businessman Dorin Cocos and his son, Alin Cocos, as well as Ionut Mihailescu, former adviser to Alina Bica.
Videanu is charged with collusion to abuse of office, after Alina Bica is said to have abusively lifted the seizure on the shares he held in Titan Mar company.
