Romanian PM Calin Popescu Tariceanu named the deputy head of Romanian fiscal authority ANAF Daniel Chitoiu as interim head of the authority on Tuesday. Chitoiu, the son-in-law of Dan Radu Rusanu, an influential member of Tariceanu’s National Liberal Party-PNL, replaces Sebastian Bodu, who was dismissed from office four days ago.

Chitoiu has been acting as deputy president of ANAF since February 2005. He had previously been a financial supervisor at the Romanian Court of Accounts.

His father-in-law Dan Radu Rusanu is seen as a mind behind the scene in Liberal politics.

Chitoiu also served as a member in various boards of state companies including the Savings House-CEC, Radiocomunicatii SA and the Coresi Publishing House.
