Culi?? T?râ??, one of the richest men in Romania, has died at 62 on Friday night, due to a pancreatic cancer. He has been undergoing chemotherapy at the famous AKH clinic in Vienna.

His fortune was estimated to be EUR 130 M. Culi?? T?râ?? ran the biggest farm in the European Union, Insula Mare a Br?ilei/ Braila Great Island. Yet, his company Trei Brazi/ Three Firs went bankrupt two months ago, although he used to have EUR 100 M annual turnover at its start. However T?râ?? has already receded from business, all his companies being run by his three sons.

Culi?? T?râ?? was PSD MP twice in the Romanian Parliament. In 2001, during his first term, he took over 57.000 hectares of Insula Mare a Brailei, after a lease contract on 20 years signed with the Agency of the State Domains. Thus, T?râ?? became the owner of the greatest EU farm, and his company used to be the most important agricultural one in Romania for years. Yet, the contract that made him the owner of the well-known aggie island was controversial and the anti-corruption prosecutors started an investigation on the taking-over.

In 2011, T?râ?? resigned from PSD and joined the National Progressive Union (UNPR) and in 2012 became the president of Neamt County Council.
