Former President Traian B?sescu was involved in 58 criminal cases, seven of which being still under settlement, according to the High Court of Cassation and Justice.

“At the Department of Criminal Investigation and Criminalistics, during March 2004 – April 2014,  a total of 58 criminal cases was registered, out of which 53 already solved. Two cases were connected to another one solved in 2007 with the drop of criminal charges on the basis of art. 10 letter f from the Code of Criminal Procedure,” shows the High Court of Cassation and Justice.

According to the quoted source, other two files were declined at the Office of the Court of Appeal Bucharest, respectively at the Military Prosecutor’s Office affiliated to Bucharest Military Court.

Prosecutors are currently investigating only one criminal case, according to the quoted source.

Regarding the National Anti-corruption Directorate (DNA), between 2002 – 2012, there were registered four criminal cases on Traian B?sescu’s name, out of which one is pending, the others being settled.

At the end of last year, Senator Gabriela Firea’s file in which she accuses former President Traian B?sescu of blackmail was reopened by the Supreme Court’s prosecutors, as the former head of state does not benefit from immunity anymore.

Sources from the Public Ministry told Mediafax that investigations are conducted regarding charges on the former president and the investigators are to determine whether the prosecution will also be extended in regards with the person.

B?sescu – Firea scandal began after the former president said about the PSD Senator that she is “a good journalist, but as a jurist she is catastrophic”. The former head of state also said Gabriela Firea is “a professional blackmailer”.

Another file to be included in the report Tiberiu Ni?u requested is the “Fleet” file  regarding the manner that the Romanian fleet lost series of high capacity ore-ships through crimes committed by those who would have fraudulently initiated and carried out the association of CNM Petromin SA Constan?a with private group of companies Torvald Klaveness Oslo in Norway, during the period of April 1991 – August 2000. Traian Basescu has been investigated in the ‘Fleet’ file in the past, too, but the case was closed.

However, B?sescu said in June 2012 that, as far as he knew, he had no criminal case ongoing, the “Mih?ileanu House” and “Fleet” files being closed.
