Ploiesti Anticorruption Structure Investigated For Setting Up Organized Crime Group

The section extended accusations initially brought against DNA prosecutors Lucian Onea and Mircea Negulescu, with the entire DNA Ploiesti structure to be investigated for setting up an organized crime group, according to the sources.

The two were questioned by prosecutors on Friday, after other prosecutors from the structure were similarly brought before the section on Thursday.

Lucian Onea and former DNA Ploiesti prosecutor Mircea Negulescu are at the center of a scandal regarding claims of evidence falsification within the agency’s local branch.

Former MP Vlad Cosma accused in early 2018 that the two coerced him into filing a denouncement against a fictitious Moldovan citizen, and also made him forge a list allegedly showing Moldovan voters who received electoral bribes. He said that the two prosecutors threatened him with launching a criminal case against his sister, current social-democrat MP Andreea Cosma.

Justice Minister Tudorel Toader later cited the accusations as the main reason for his proposal to dismiss former DNA chief prosecutor Laura Codruta Kovesi. The case is currently investigated by the country’s General Prosecutor’s Office.
