Romanian MEP Adrian Severin reacted shortly following the decision of the EP to waive his immunity through a press release. The press release reads that he commends the decision of the EP because after months of hesitations and accusations it opens the way towards investigation.

The document reads that Severin is a victim in this case and instead of being defended, was executed publicly without respect for the presumption of innocence or right to a proper defense. The document reads that the fact that the investigation just starts is in itself a proof that all that way so far released was a deceitful and mean form of justice.

Severin said in the document that he was, he is and he will always be an integer man who has a model career track. He said that few people made so much for Romania and for the EU as he did.
