Former PSD chairman and premier Victor Ponta has posted on Facebook Thursday a new photo picturing PSD chair Liviu Dragnea next to George Maior, former SRI director and currently ambassador to the U.S., next to former anti-corruption chief Laura Codruta Kovesi and next to ex-deputy PM Gabriel Oprea. Ponta accused Dragnea that he is like „a desperate, mad pilot, ready to destroy all”.
„For all CEx members of the Social Democrat Party- for all those who are still endorsing Dragnea! Enough with lie and hypocrisy! Enough with manipulation and imposture! Dragnea has never fought either Kovesi or the Parallel State, neither against abuses nor to defend his colleagues! He has always pursued his personal interest, regardless of the others’ interest! My revolt, Grindeanu’s, Tudose’s, Banicioiu’s, Andronescu’s, Firea’s revolt (…) have nothing to do with Iohannis, SRI, Soros, blah-blah- it’s just an attempt, at the eleventh hour, to take the stick from a mad, desperate pilot, ready to destroy all! The ones who stand by Dragnea tomorrow, had better not invoke false excuses!,” reads Ponta’s Facebook post.
The photo accompanying the post features Liviu Dragnea smoking, standing at the table next to Kovesi, Maior and Oprea and another unidentified man, about whom Ponta says in a comment that „he is a private person who has no public position”; „ but Dragnea can tell you what’s going on with the pixels”, Ponta added.
About ten days ago, former Prime Minister, Victor Ponta, posted on his Facebook page the first photo with PSD leader, Liviu Dragnea, together with former Romanian Intelligence Service (SRI) chief George Maior. In the background can be seen the former National Anticorruption Directorate (DNA) chief prosecutor, Laura Codruta Kovesi.
The second „incriminating” photo with Dragnea came soon after the first one, picturing Dragnea next to Gabriel Oprea and Vasile Dancu attending a private event.
