The report presented by the Romanian Intelligence Service (SRI) on the origin of the bird flu outbreak two weeks ago in the county of Brasov was severely slammed by both the Romanian president and the PM. The president labeled the report as “embarrassing” and self disqualifying for the SRI.

The PM criticized the fact that the situation got an international political dimension due to the blunder by SRI which had made unfounded accusations.

The report stumbles in inaccurate information making a big confusion between hen chickens and turkey chickens. The SRI report writes that poultry imports from Hungary and Slovakia. The two countries rejected the accusations and so did the European Commission which denied the existence of the virus H5 in Hungary and Slovakia.
