The director of the Romanian Intelligence Service (SRI), Eduard Hellvig, the chief prosecutor of the National Anti-corruption Directorate (DNA), Laura Codruta Kovesi and former deputy director of the SRI, Florian Coldea would have been heard in the Black Cube file in the past two weeks, media reported. SRI has confirmed the hearing of its director, Eduard Hellvig.
Hellving has been heard as witness at DIICOT on February 28, Coldea on March 8, while Kovesi has been heard on March 13.
The only ones so far to confirm the information has been the national intelligence service.
“Director of the Romanian Intelligence Service, Mr. Eduard Hellvig, was at DIICOT on February 28, to give statements related to the Black Cube file. During hearings, Mr. Hellvig reiterated the fact that he has no involvement in this case and that he is expressing full willingness to support any institution of the Romanian state in its legal actions,” says the SRI press release.
The Black Cube file was opened in 2016 and is probing into some bullying attempts against DNA chief prosecutor, Laura Codruta Kovesi. Two Israeli citizens, hired by Black Cube, have admitted charges against them, being sentenced on probation.
However, investigations went on against the former intelligence officer, Daniel Dragomir, who is suspected he would have brokered the connection between the people who wanted to know information about Kovesi and the Black Cube’s employees.
Dragomir was arrested for several months in this file. He has recently stated that DIICOT is slowing down the investigation and has asked prosecutors to send the case in court.
