The investigation into the Israeli spies file arrested in Bucharest could end soon, said on June 29 the DIICOT chief prosecutor Daniel Horodniceanu. He said he expects the Israeli authorities and the United Kingdom to communicate including who the mysterious character who ordered the DNA chief being compromised.
Ron Weiner and David Geclowicz, two Israelis arrested in Bucharest, allegedly tried to gather information to compromise the DNA chief, Laura Kovesi.
The National Anticorruption Directorate (DNA) chief, Laura Codruța Kovesi, was spied by former Mossad agents, according to Rise Project. Four Israeli citizens are under the DIICOT investigation for spying on communications and for attempt to discredit Laura Codruța Kovesi. Two of the suspects were arrested in Romania.
The two of suspects who had spied on the DNA head are Dan Zorella and Avi Yanus, former intelligence officers and co-founders and CEOs of the Israeli private investigation firm Black Cube. Meir Dagan – former Mossad director during 2002-2011 – also worked for the company.
According to prosecutors, the two, together with several Black Cube employees, including Ron Weiner and David Geclowicz, “have formed an organised group to commit offenses of harassment and IT offenses consisting in making multiple threatening phone calls (…) and phishing attacks in order to steal the access credentials and subsequently to compromise the email accounts, activity followed by violation of the secrecy of correspondence, for illegal copying and transferring it.”
