Laura Codruta Kovesi meets Slovenia’s ambassador to Bucharest after Sebastian Ghita’s capture
Mihael Zupancic, Slovenia’s ambassador to Bucharest had a meeting with the chief prosecutor of DNA, Codruta Kovesi, with whom he discussed about the fight against corruption in Romania, according to the Facebook page of the embassy, quoted by Mediafax agency.
Slovenia authorities have collaborated with the Romanian ones in Ghita s case.
”Ambassador Mihael Zupancic had a meeting with Laura Codruta Kovesi, DNA Chief Prosecutor. Interlocutors discussed about fight against corruption and possible changes of penal law. Ambassador Zupancic praised DNA a contribution to the fight against corruption, which affects Romania s economy and the citizens social security. The ambassador pointed out the concern of the Slovenian Embassy for the discourse used by the press in Romania against representatives of key institutions responsible for the rule of law,” the Facebook page of the embassy shows.
The meeting was held in the context in which Slovenia authorities supplied data about Sebastian Ghita, concerning his fake identity.
The former deputy was visited by his brother Alexandru Ghita on April 12, whose trip to Belgrade led to the former deputy s capture. The two left the house where Ghita lived and were asked by the police to identify themselves. Sebastian Ghita presented fake documents and told them in English that he was a Slovenian student.
Investigators already had data from Romanian authorities. Ghita was taken to police headquarters where his documents proved to be fake. In the same period of time Ghita kept in touch not only with his brother and also with a woman, close to the former deputy, who made several trips to Serbia since Ghita s disappearance to the present day.
