Rudel Obreja, released from prison to treat his cancer
The Ilfov court decided on Friday that the execution of the sentence for the former president of the Romanian Boxing Federation Rudel Obreja, who was sentenced in a final ruling in April to five years in prison in the Gala Bute case, can be interrupted for a period of three months. He argued that he has cancer with metastases and wants to be properly treated. The decision is not final though.
The court established that the former president of the Romanian Boxing Federation has several obligations during this period: he must not leave the country except under the conditions established by the court, contact the Police in order to be recorded, not possess weapons, presents to the hospital for treatment. If he violates one of these measures, then the suspension of the sentence will be revoked, the Ilfov Court also decided.
The decision can be challenged within three days of communication, and if it is not challenged, it will remain final.
