Carmen Iohannis, the wife of President Klaus Iohannis, was heard by the Prosecutor General’s Office in the file related to the amounts received from renting a house, judicial sources say.
The Prosecutor’s Office representatives have not revealed when Carman Iohannis went to the Public Ministry, but other sources say the hearing took place sometime last week.
The file was managed by Cristian Lazar, the deputy head of the Criminal Investigation Section with the Prosecutor General’s Office. Later, the file was taken over by another prosecutor, as Lazar’s term ended and he moved to another prosecutor’s office, digi24.ro informs.
Carmen Iohannis was summoned by the Prosecutor’s Office in November and December 2018.
The file was opened by the Prosecutor’s Office upon the High Court of Cassation and Justice following a complaint filed against a notary public in Sibiu, Radu Gabriel Bucsa and against the Iohannis spouses, Carmen and Klaus Iohannis. The file is related to their actions to acquire two houses downtown Sibiu starting 1999. The buildings were in the state property and were managed by the Sibiu City Hall, which was led by Klaus Iohannis during 2000-2014.
The complaint mentions that, following the rent cashed in for one building, Iohannis and his wife had obtained EUR 320,000 until a court in Brasov cancelled in November 2015 the real estate document on the house as well as the inheritance papers on which basis the house had been taken over from the state patrimony.
