This journalistic investigation lasted two months. In this investigation we not encountered obstacles, pressures or intimidation from institutions in Romania. The persons who provided information to journalists from CARJ they wanted to remain under the protection of journalistic sources. The people which provided information in this investigation will be protected as journalistic sources. This is the first investigation with regard to this magistrate.
Dimitriu Radu, is a controversial prosecutor within DIICOT Romania (Directorate for Investigating Organized Crime and Terrorism ). With a profile very speckled by abuses and irregularities (according to the judicial sources from Romania), he declared false information in official documents that belong to it, in order to hide certain amounts of money coming from banks of the country.
FALSE IN OFFICIAL STATEMENTS IN 2008
Based on the documents of the Superior Council of Magistracy of Romania, (CSM) but also from other institutions, CARJ has been found that the prosecutor DIMITRIU RADU HE DID FALSE IN OFFICIAL STATEMENTS.
In the statement of revenue from 2008 is mentioned only a loan from 2007 taken from Transilvania Bank of 65.600 RON. But in the declaration in 2009, the prosecutor mentions 2 new loans, both taken in the year 2007. Both taken from Romanian Bank in the amount of 130.000 Euro. In these circumstances, the prosecutor had made false in statements official because not mentioning in statement of wealth from 2008 all the Bank loans taken in 2007 from Romanian Bank.
FALSE IN OFFICIAL STATEMENTS IN 2010
In 2010, the prosecutor Dimitriu Radu make a new false in statements. Thus, in his declaration of wealth in 2009, the prosecutor shall record the credit of 65.600 RON which it has taken in 2007 from Transilvania Bank. The contract had maturities in 2012. In the statement of wealth from 2010 The prosecutor Dimitriu Radu, do not write this credit. In the Declaration of wealth in 2011 appears again the credit in value of 65.600 RON on which it took him in 2007 from Transilvania Bank. If this credit has not been paid before the deadline, it is obvious that the prosecutor Dimitriu Radu has made false in the declaration in 2010, because had refused to pass to revenue the credit in worth of 65.600 on which it has taken in 2007 from Transilvania Bank.
ACCORDING TO SOURCES FROM TRANSILVANIA BANK, THE CREDITS PROSECUTOR HAVE BEEN ” FORCED “
Persons from Transilvania Bank, they said that the situation of credits made by customer Dimitriu Radu, have a substratum of suspicion. the conditions for obtaining these loans were “forced”. Mr. Dimitriu Radu, did not have very high income to be able to get in the same time a large number of credits. (especially during the 2007-2008). It is obvious that the conditions for obtaining these credits were “forced” by his wife, who works in a branch of our bank.
PROTECTED BY STATE INSTITUTIONS
CARJ investigation is made in the year 2014. This journalistic investigation has brought to the surface, forgeries of the Prosecutor Dimitriu Radu from the years 2008-2010. The Institutions from Romania they knew about this situation, since 2011.
However, all judicial institutions from Romania have refused researching this prosecutor for false in official statements.
In these circumstances, we understand that certain structures of the Romanian justice system (as DIICOT), benefit from the protection of the state institutions, and people of these structures have the “freedom” to do what they want.
