The owners of the LPG station in Crevedia were detained today for 24 hours. The owner of the former LPG station that exploded in Crevedia, Ionuț Doldurea, was brought to hearings at the General Prosecutor’s Office in Bucharest. Prosecutors have also called key witnesses who will help them draw conclusions about how the tragedy near Bucharest took place.

Doldurea was brought to the Prosecutor’s Office with a warrant. His lawyer says that his client has not received any message notifying him that he is being summoned to the Prosecutor’s Office. His associate, Cosmin Stângă, was also brought to the Prosecutor’s Office.

“In the file regarding the fire that broke out on August 26, 2023 as a result of explosions that occurred in the locality of Crevedia in Dâmbovița county, the case prosecutor from the Forensic Criminal Investigation Section ordered the continuation of the criminal investigation and the detention of two defendants, administrators of a commercial company, under the aspect of committing the crime of culpable destruction that resulted in a disaster, prev. of art. 255 paragraph 1 and 2 of the Criminal Code). At the same time, in the case it was ordered to continue the criminal investigation against a legal person, a commercial company with its registered office in the municipality of Caracal, Olt county, under the aspect of committing the crime of culpable destruction which resulted in a disaster, prev. of art. 255 para. 1 and 2 Criminal Code”, announces a press release from the General Prosecutor’s Office.

Asked what the charges were against the two, their lawyer said: “I have no message right now. We will find out. I don’t know more”.

Ionuț Doldurea, who is the son of the mayor of Caracal, did not want to give statements to journalists before entering the Prosecutor’s Office building. Doldurea and Stângă are the shareholders of the company Flagas SRL, which owns the LPG station in Crevedia, which exploded last week.

The station had been closed by the Inspectorate for Emergency Situations in 2020, but was still operating as a warehouse.

5 people died and around 50 were injured in last Saturday’s blasts. As a result, 10 houses were destroyed and dozens more were damaged.

The two associates of the Flagas firm offered to pay all the damages and even to rebuild all the houses that were totally or partially destroyed.

A woman who lived near the LPG station and whose house was completely destroyed by the explosion said she called Doldurea to tell him that there was a strong smell of gas in the area.
