Ex-Finance minister Mihai Tanasescu faces High Court prosecutors’ question on Thursday in the complicated case against the Rompetrol company.

It’s the second time Tanasescu is grilled in connection with an ordinance he issued while in office several years ago, that changed into shares the debts to the state held by the Petromidia refinery of the Rompetrol group.

During the previous questioning on February 6, Tanasescu said the ordinance was beneficial for the Romanian state as it allowed a major contributor to be able to pay its dues to the state.
