PM Calin Popescu Tariceanu commented yesterday that the accusations expressed by ex chief of the DGA (General Anti-Corruption Department in the Ministry of Internal Affairs) against the Romanian interior minister Vasile Blaga were worrying.
The Romanian PM announced he would analyze the situation and might decide to demand the governmental control body to check on the case. Tariceanu announced he would be waiting for the preliminary elements and, if the case, ask the governmental control body to proceed to checks. He argued: "There have been worrying statements. As a PM, it is my duty to be extremely cautious in such situations and wait for the preliminary elements. If the case, we have more means available: there is a governmental body for control and I can ask for investigations if I think it appropriate."
When asked about the measures to be taken in case the accusations proved true, the PM answered he wouldn't want to express speculations, which the press would misinterpret. (...) (R.G.)
