The founder of the Movement for Spiritual Integration in the Absolute (MISA), Gregorian Bivolaru, will be released on Wednesday from Bistrita Penitentiary, following the decision made by judges last week which was not challenged by prosecutors.
According to Bistrita Court, no challenge was filed in the file no. 6859/190/2017 on Bivolaru’s release on parole, the deadline being September 12, 24.00h.
The decision on September 7 is thus final.
Bivolaru was sentenced in 2013 by the High Court for Cassation and Justice (ICCJ – Supreme Court) to six years in prison, with execution.
The former spiritual leader of MISA, Gregorian Bivolaru was brought in July 2016 to Romania under escort following the French magistrates’ decision to be extradited, judicial sources said.
According to a press release by the Romanian Police, a 64 years old man on whose name was issued a warrant for the offense of sexual intercourse with a minor, was taken, escorted and placed in a centre for detention and remand of the Romanian Police.
“Following the international police cooperation with the judicial authorities in France, on July 22, 2016 the police with the Centre for International Police Cooperation – IGPR have conducted the mission of taking over, under escort, a man of 64 years, on whose name was issued a warrant for the offense of sexual intercourse with a minor,” a release read.
