The Prosecutor’s Office upon the Galati Court of Appeal has been notified ex-officio after a Social Democrat county councilman from Vrancea, Constatin Guguianu has shared a fake photo on Facebook featuring President Klaus Iohannis dressed in a Nazi uniform.
Constantin Guguianu has resigned from the councilman position and from the positions in the Social Democrat Party following this scandal and particularly following criticism for sharing that photo. The councilman has also publicly apologized to the head of state and admitted he had committed „a foolish act”, claiming he did not know that sharing the swastika and the Nazi markings represented a felony.
„It has been a foolish act and I publicly apologize to President Klaus Iohannis,” the Social Democrat said, adding he had shared the picture without thinking of the consequences.
“I don’t know how it all happened, all this rolling over me. There are hundreds of posts, of shares and no one has stirred so many reactions as in my case, it was probably because I was a PSD member and a county councilman. I had a discussion with Vrancea PSD chairman Marian Oprisan and I asked to resign. I admitted my mistake, it was a foolish mistake. I apologize to President Klaus Iohannis, I was wrong to him, to my party fellows, to the German ethic group. I am confuse and I will be away for a while,” the resigning councilman explained.
Constantin Guguianu has been a PSD councilman and PSD member since 2004 and he also led the group of PSD councilmen in the Vrancea County Council.
