Former Minister Elena Udrea has told Antena 3 TV private broadcaster she is in Costa Rica and she is pregnant with twins.
“Costa Rica is a beautiful and friendly country, but it seems expensive for those who live here. I’ve arrived here, I’ve visited some good friends. (…) I am between two medical procedures, which are made in Athens. I’ve arrived here after the first one and next week I will have the second one. If everything goes right, I will have two boys. I am pregnant with twins and the pregnancy is going well. I have strong mind. I have friends here, I will stay some time in Costa Rica,” Udrea told Antena 3 TV.
Asked if she is afraid she might go to jail again, Udrea said: “Yes, but people get out of jail. I was Elena Udrea before going to jail and after getting out. There is no reason for anyone to support the system. I am afraid to go back to jail, but I can live anyway. I am the same person.”
Elena Udrea, former Development and Tourism Minister in the Emil Boc cabinet, is prosecuted in several files, and is reportedly in Costa Rica, living in the same neighbourhood with the former National Directorate for Combating Organised Crime and Terrorism (DIICOT) head, Alina Bica, also prosecuted, who arrived there last month.
