A Bucharest court ordered on Monday the release of businessman Ovidiu Tender, who was arrested in a large-scale organized crime case earlier this year. According to the Bucharest Tribunal, the arrest had been illegal as it breached lawful procedures.
But representatives of the High Court Prosecutor’s Office announced Monday night they had challenged the decision to release Tender and that he would stay behind bars until the conclusion of the cae.
Five days before, the Appeals Court in Bucharest has decided to extend the arrest warrant on Tender’s name for 30 days.
The businessman is investigated along another person, Marian Iancu, in the RAFO-CAROM case in which they’re charged with the creating and belonging to an organized crime group, complicity to embezzlement and other charges.
