Iulian Dumitrescu contested, at the Bucharest Court, the measure of judicial control taken by the DNA prosecutors regarding him, the court analyzed his request on Thursday, but the ruling was postponed for February 12.

At Thursday’s deadline, his lawyer, Cristian Ene, declared, upon arriving at the court, that the measure of judicial control was challenged so that the judge could determine if it was justified.

He also referred to the interpretation of the amount invoked by the prosecutors in the case of bribery, stating that the amount refers to a commercial act and that is why the judges must rule.

“The complaint against the judicial control was submitted to clarify whether there is really a need for judicial control for the proper conduct of the criminal investigation. I cited several reasons, which can lead the judge to appreciate that the criminal investigation can be carried out in very good conditions without the need for judicial control. I submitted documents and highlighted several aspects in the case file that really prove that at this moment this judicial control does not appear to be appropriate and well-founded”, lawyer Cristian Ene told journalists.

The DNA placed Iulian Dumitrescu under judicial control, on February 1, in the case in which he is being investigated for bribery and forgery in statements, and his sister and her husband are being prosecuted for complicity in bribery and forgery in documents under private signature, respectively complicity in bribery and false statements.
