Prince Radu, running up for Romania's presidency, was accused of Prince Karl Friederich, the inheritor of the House of Hohenzollern, of using the name of Hohenzollern to get ahead in his campaign, Cotidianul reads. In an interview for Romanian TV channel Realitatea TV, Prince Radu responded to the accusations, by arguing that his name has been Radu of Romania Duda for one year and a half. "There is no Hohenzollern candidate for Romania's  presidency", he added.

Prince Radu was entitled Hohenzollern-Veringen between 2001 and 2008. After the Romanian Royal House status was modified in 2007, he changed his name. There is presently a court trial for the name of Hohenzollern. Referring to incumbent president Traian Basescu's constant attacks on him, Prince Radu said it was regrettable and that Basescu was dishonouring the Presidency.

Romanian businessman Dinu Patriciu controls 9,000 square kilometres in the Black Sea through one of the companies in the Rompetrol Group, Marine Resources Exploration International SRL, Cotidianul informs, quoting Business Standard. The area is rich in mud, a resource which Patriciu wants to explore for energy purposes, according to the newspaper. The businessman cannot exploit the oil and gas, but it is entitled to make use if all the other natural resources available in the area.

Patriciu's company's majority shares package is owned by Marine Resources Exploration International BV, a company registered in Holland, also controlled by him. The area concession was signed by the then president of Romania's National Agengy for Mineral resources (ANRM), Bogdan Gabudeanu, who is involved in the Sterling scandal.

In 2007, Sterling company obtained exclusive concession of 4000 square kilometres in the Black Sea, after a normative act awarded by Tariceanu Government. The public opinion found out about the deal immediately after Romania won against Ukraine the trial regarding the delimitation of the continental plateau. Ex-PM Tariceanu sued incumbent PM Boc, Gabudeanu was fired and rumours had it that Dinu Patriciu was the one to profit from the business. He diened, arguing he was solely interested in the renewable energy potential that the Black Sea had to offer.

In an interview for Business Standard, Gabudeanu stated that the concession licence was awarded through a public auction. The winning company was the only candidate.

Romanian soccer champions, Unirea Urziceni players trained by ex-Chelsea Dan Petrescu, celebrated winning Romania's cup after only three years of playing in the country's first League, Evenimentul Zilei reads. The footballers danced traditional Romanian hora in a local pub, drank champagne from the cup, and partied hard after having worked harder. The European sport press was impressed by Dan Petrscu's team performance.

It's main asset was Dan Petrescu as a coach, the publication noted. Cheaslea's official website hails Dan Petrescu's team performance.
