“I had, I have a proposal from Netflix to make a series,” says Elena Udrea in an interview granted in Costa Rica to ‘Gazeta Sporturilor’. Udrea says she could become a millionaire in dollars as a result of this deal.

“I received the proposal when I was in Romania, but now they find it even more interesting because I am here,” she added.

Asked if the documentary will eventually be filmed, she replied: “Yes, yes, if the talks are completed. A woman from London came to see me. It seemed very interesting to me,” Udrea also said.

Bucharest Court of Appeal admitted last Friday the appeal filed by former Tourism minister Elena Udrea against the seizure placed by the National Anti-corruption Directorate on her assets. The ruling is final. Anti-corruption prosecutors had seized Udrea’s assets in a file related to the financing of the 2009 electoral campaign.

DNA had charged Udrea with money laundering in a file related to the financing of the electoral campaign for presidential elections in 2009, mpre precisely there were four charges of money laundering related to her as the person that had ‘unofficially’ dealt with the electoral campaign of former President Traian Basescu.

The former minister of Tourism and Regional Development at that time was accused that during October-November 2009, she determined Gheorghe Nastasia, the ministry’s secretary general at that time, to ask and receive almost RON 1 million from a businessman, in exchange for assigning him contracts with the ministry.

Former Tourism Minister, Elena Udrea, claims she assumed responsibility when leaving Romania to reach Costa Rica, where she requested the refugee status, blaming the abuses in the home country.

“I did not flee. I requested this status of refugee and protection, a must considering what is happening in Romania and my case during the past three years. I decided to leave when I realised there’s no chance for a fair trial. I realised there’s no chance for a fair trial at the appeal, as it was not the case in the first court. I came to a country with strong and transparent legal framework, which protects those abused by their home country,” Udrea told Antena 3 TV private broadcaster by video call earlier this month.
