The Bucharest Court has ruled on Thursday on the annulment of the ordinance to initiate the criminal proceedings ordered by the prosecutors against Dinu Pescariu and Claudiu Florică in the Microsoft file. The ruling is not final.

“The court finds that there is no prior authorization of the Prosecutor General’s Office upon the High Court of Cassation and Justice (ICCJ – Supreme Court). It orders the annulment of the ordinance for criminal prosecution dated January 18, 2018 against the defendants. With right to appeal,” the decision of the Bucharest Court reads.

Dinu Pescariu was heard by the National Anticorruption Directorate (DNA) on January 19, 2018 to be informed by the prosecutors that he is defendant in the file disjoint from the Microsoft file. The accusations in this case are about money laundering.

Former Minister Gabriel Sandu, former head of Microsoft Romania, Călin Tatomir, and businessmen Claudiu Florică and Dinu Pescariu were sued in another Microsoft file in September, accused of damaging the state by over EUR 51 million, according to the DNA.

Last week, the DNA prosecutors decided to drop the charges against Dinu Pescariu and three other suspects in the file on the ‘Cutezatorii’ sports facility because there is no evidence in terms of criminal responsibility. In the same file, Mihnea Costoiu had been sued for abuse of office.
