This IT company won the auction on the soft needed for the statistic work on the poll due in November 25. Several ZIUA sources claim the Net Consulting will help President Basescu and the PD. This IT connection is in strong ties with the secret services the President rules.
Although three businessmen own it officially, the NET Consulting is under substantial suspicion. One reason for it is the rumor the company is headed by the SIE (Foreign Intelligence Department) from the shadow. One of the owners is a business partner of Victor Macri, an ex captain in the ex Securitate (Communist Secret Service in Romania) and also a son of General Emil Macri. ZIUA sources say Victor Macri has been active after 1989 too as an under cover officer in companies.
