The former Economy minister, Codrut Seres, was heard on Thursday at the Prosecutor General’s Office, in the “Strategic privatizations” file. When questioned by the journalists, Seres said he didn’t make any written statements and only filed a before-hearing acknowledgement, accepted by the prosecutor. Seres also got a chance to throw a glimpse at the documents in his file.

Seres declared for the press that he is still confident in the ways and means of the Justice system, a system that would eventually prove him innocent.

It was the first time Seres met the prosecutors, in a file in which he’s accused of unveiling secret information in the energy-related privatizations.

In the same file, Seres is accused of supporting a trans-national crime-oriented group, in fact an espionage network put up by the international consultant Stamen Stantchev.
