The decline of the “Basescu” network. How the pawns of the group successively acquired the status of “ex”

This week, the famous Camelia Bogdan, twice excluded from the judiciary, lost her capacity as a judge for good, through a decision also pronounced by the High Court of Cassation and Justice. And today, at the supreme court, a new trial is taking place in which the eldest daughter of “Petrov”, Ioana Băsescu, received, on the merits, a sentence of five years in prison with execution.

Camelia Bogdan, the judge who provided paid services for one of the parties involved in the trial she was judging, even before pronouncing the final sentence, lost her capacity as a magistrate. On Tuesday, April 12, 2022, the High Court of Cassation and Justice rejected the appeal filed by Camelia Bogdan against the decision of the SCM, which excluded her from the profession for the second time. And, this time, the sentence is final.

He came into conflict with DIICOT

According to the Group for Political Investigations, the HCCJ’s decision was predictable, as the reasons retained by the SCM judges’ section for the decision of April 2, 2018 to exclude Camelia Bogdan from the judiciary had already been definitively established by a High Court decision.

“On July 5, 2017, the supreme judges decided to annul a decision handed down by Judge Bogdan at a time when she was working in the Second Criminal Section of the Bucharest Court of Appeal. Camelia Bogdan’s decision had been challenged even by DIICOT, the prosecutor’s office that had ordered several people to be prosecuted and which Judge Bogdan had ruled in favor of. However, DIICOT had challenged Camelia Bogdan’s sentence at the HCCJ, arguing that the decision was not legal and well-founded, as long as extended confiscation and special confiscation measures were ordered against third parties against whom no criminal prosecution had been carried out. shows the quoted source.

He seriously violated the procedures

The High Court of Cassation and Justice found that Judge Bogdan had flagrantly violated the provisions on random distribution by intentionally keeping a case in which she had replaced a judge for a single term. The purpose was to order, among other things, the special confiscation of money from a third party, a notary public, who had not even been a party to the process. Camelia Bogdan also seized the accounts of the notary’s office and those of a judge with whom she was in conflict, the notary’s wife.

Camelia Bogdan was also excluded from the judiciary because she participated in a paid seminar, organized in Poiana Brașov by APIA, an institution subordinated to the Ministry of Agriculture, a ministry that was a civil party in the ICA case, which Camelia was judging on appeal. Bogdan. The prosecutor who investigated the ICA case, Emilian Eva, is no longer a magistrate, after suffering a final sentence of 2 years and 11 months in prison with suspension.

He lost his house and his special pension and is expecting “the worst” in his daughter’s case

The regime built by Traian Băsescu, in ten years of mandate at the Cotroceni Palace, began to crumble, pawn by pawn, things reaching their peak starting last month, when the High Court of Cassation and Justice rejected his appeal and established, definitively , that the former president poured into the Securitate, under the conspiratorial name “Petrov”, thus becoming a political police.

Following this court decision, Traian Băsescu lost all the privileges of former head of state, granted by Law 406/2001. He was notified by RA-APPS to leave the protocol villa from Gogol Street no. 2, within 60 days, but also the apartment where he had his work office, from Mihai Eminescu Street. The Presidential Administration withdrew his monthly allowance equal to 75% of the President’s allowance and dismissed his adviser. And the Protection and Guard Service no longer provides transport, security or protection to the former president.

Five years with execution for Ioan Băsescu, at the Bucharest Court of Appeal

Next Thursday, a new blow for “Petrov” followed, by the conviction by the High Court of Elena Udrea to 6 years in prison in the “Gala Bute” case, by rejecting the annulment appeal.

But Basescu’s problems did not end here. Today, the supreme court is discussing a possible last trial term in the case regarding the illegal financing of the presidential election campaign in 2009, a case in which the eldest daughter of the former president, Ioana Băsescu, was convicted last year by the Court of Appeal. Bucharest, to a sentence of five years in prison with execution. Elena Udrea was also sentenced in this case to 8 years in prison with execution.

In a televised speech last week, Basescu said he did not expect “anything good” about the fate of the case and the solution the judges would decide.

Bulgarian judges are asking Romania for explanations regarding Elena Udrea’s accusations

Elena Udrea was presented yesterday to the Bulgarian judges who have to decide on her request for extradition to Romania, in order to be imprisoned in the penitentiary, after the final sentence in the Gala Bute case remains final. Udrea is under arrest in the neighboring state, after trying to cross into Greece, on the very day the HCCJ handed down the conviction. In his name, the authorities in Bucharest issued a European arrest warrant.

Yesterday, the Bulgarian magistrates heard Udrea in the extradition process, the latter insisting on not allowing her to be handed over to Romania. Elena Udrea submitted to the judges several medical documents, which would certify that she suffers from several diseases, and explained to them that, when she was subjected to a pre-trial detention warrant, in 2015, she was imprisoned in -a Romanian penitentiary was threatened with death.

Moreover, Elena Udrea told the magistrates that she is being politically persecuted in Romania and asked them to judge her correctly, without being influenced by the media pressures that “make their presence felt even in Bulgaria”. The former Romanian minister also informed Bulgarian judges that he had filed an application for political asylum in Greece.

Bulgarian magistrates have decided that, following statements made by Udrea in the courtroom, to submit to the Bucharest authorities a request in which they should come with explanations about the penitentiary in which Elena Udrea was imprisoned, but also about the inhuman treatment of that period which she invoked. The court decided to postpone the decision on the extradition request until April 19. The decision will not be final, it can be challenged. The representative of the Bulgarian prosecutor’s office asked the court to approve the extradition request.
