The first cases of African swine fever were tracked down in Teleorman County about ten days ago, Liviu Dragnea’s fief. Mass media reported that two pigs, confirmed with the African swine fever virus, were found dead in a forest, on Dragnea family’s hunting domain.

Local authorities kept the cases secret for two weeks although the European and national laws compel the Health Veterinary Directorate to immediately report all the suspect case.

The hunting domain related to Dragnea’s family is in a forest from Slobozia Mandra in Teleorman county, 19 kilometers away from the pig farm in Salcia, owned by Liviu Dragnea’s son, Valentin. An employee from the National Veterinary Authority told “Libertatea” daily that the reporting on those two cases in Teleorman been kept secret as “they feared of what might have happened if the information had revealed the pigs had been found on Dragnea’s domain.”
