Romania's main body studying the archive of the communist-era political police, the Securitate, decided on Thursday that Alba bishop Andrei Andreicut was a Securitate collaborator.

Also on Thursday, CNSAS ruled that the Securitate files on the name of Romania's newly named Patriarch, Daniel, were burnt at the time of the Revolution while the his main countercandidate Bartolomeu’s file is to be discussed next week in a common commission formed by Foreign Intelligence Service members and CNSAS officials.

Mircea Dinescu, member of the CNSAS said that the college did not meet before the election of the new Patriarch so that it would not be accused of interfering in the Church affairs.

The college ruled that bishops and archbishops should be called to hearings to rule whether they collaborated with the Securitate structures.

Dinescu says that even if rumors have it that the newly elected Patriarch, Daniel Ciubotea did collaborate with the secret police, given that he studied 10 years abroad in the Communist period, the College cannot prove anything.

CNSAS sources last week launched accusations against priests, bishops and archbishops to have collaborated with the Communist Secret Police.

Romania elected Daniel as new Patriarch of the Romanian Orthodox Church on Wednesday, 40 days after the death of late Patriarch Teoctist.
