Sebastian Ghita’s company made business with Serbia’s Finances Ministry
Businessman Sebastian Ghita, former PSD MP, prosecuted in several corruption cases in Romania, now under house arrest in Serbia, where he had managed to flee in December 2016, has more connections with Serbia than initially thought. According to Digi24.ro, a week before Ghita’s being arrested in Serbia, Teamnet, the company set up by him, was clinching a business contract with the Finances Ministry in Belgrade, worth EUR 1 million. However, it was not the first contract Ghita has inked in Serbia.
In April 2017, a consortium consisting in Teamnet Business Solutions and Teamnet International and a company from Serbia has won a public procurement worth EUR 1,013,000. The contract stipulated software solutions acquisitions for the Finances Ministry in Belgrade.
The Serbian company belongs to an acquaintance of the Serbian president, Aleksandar Vučić.
Teamnet had other contracts signed in the Serbian state in the past. Ghita’s company won a contract to implement a video surveillance system to protect the state border in Serbia in 2012, and another one to consolidate the Serbian fiscal administration by providing technical assistance to manage the human resources in 2013. Teamnet also provided in 2014 technical assistance to implement a software application “for the increase of life quality of the population living at the Romanian-Serbian border”.
