Flori Dinu, General Manager of Hexi Pharma, has been taken on remand on Friday night, for 24 hours, by the prosecutors with the General Prosecutor’s office in the case of diluted disinfectants used in hospitals.
According to the General Prosecutor’s office, Flori Dinu is charged with 99 counts of continued fraud and 29 counts of simple fraud, as well as improper participation in hindering disease control.
Flori Dinu was summoned to the General Prosecutor’s on Friday and, as she failed to show up prosecutors issued a peremptory writ on her name and she was brought under escort.
After several hours of hearings, prosecutors have taken Flori Dinu into custody and she will be taken to court with a proposal of preventive arrest.
Digi24 reports that Flori Dinu told prosecutors that Dan Condrea was the only person who took the decisions and who would interfere in the manufacturing process of the products.
The Hexi Pharma manager admitted that she knew that the disinfectants were diluted, acoording to a recipe enforced precisly by Dan Condrea.
According to prosecutors, Hexi Pharma clinched contracts with 152 medical units to supply them with biocidal products during 2014-2016, with a total value of about RON 51 million.
She is the first individual indicted in this case, as Hexi Pharma owner Dan Condrea, another suspect, died in a car crash last Sunday before prosecutors had the chance to hear him.
The Hexi Pharma general manager Flori Dinu told the journalists on Thursday that the disinfectants scandal came up exactly when the company was getting ready to expand abroad, and that’s why they disturbed certain groups of interests.
She stressed that Hexi Pharma products were all right, despite proves presented by the Government following the lab tests.
“The company’s image was clouded and I want to assure all those that used our products that they were conformable, I personally guarantee that,” she concluded.
