However, she is contradicted by two reports of SRI of 2008 and 2013, which clearly state that the officers were actually parts of the mixed investigation teams.
Brussels, October 17th, a secondary hall of European Parliament. Head of DNA, Laura Codruța Kovesi, is attending a conference organized by two Members of European Parliament, who have no connection with the Justice, and the meeting is intended to launder her image affected by the latest scandals in her home country.
The start of the debates was not quite pleasant for Kovesi: she found out that two journalists were in front of her, Mirel Curea and Răzvan Savaliuc, who asked troublesome questions, which she denied answering. Now she will have to. The eyes of Europeans are watching her. Even if she avoids the clear answers to the questions asked, one of them makes her lie. Mirel Curea, senior editor-in-chief of EVZ asks her how she would explain the breach of the country’s Constitution by the establishment of the mixed investigating teams with SRI officers, who’s duties do not include any roles of investigators, as provided by Romanian law.
Kovesi answers, in a little bit hoarse voice: SRI officers only provided technical assistance in the instrumentation of some files, in monitoring some of the suspects by using the equipment of their institution, so they were not actually involved in the management of any criminal files. The answer seems quite accurate for the Europeans; however, it causes anger among Romanians. The Romanians in the room know that Kovesi lied.
SRI contradicts Kovesi
The lie of Laura Codruța Kovesi is proved by SRI themselves. In their activity reports for the years 2008 and 2013, as published by EVZ as an episode of the series „We Are the State!”, released on April 3rd, 2017, SRI managers admit that their own officers were parts of the investigation teams.
„The participation within the mixed operational teams established together with the prosecution offices, in joint analyses with the prosecutors”, is written in the activity report of SRI for 2008. Actually, the management of the main secret service of the country admits that their officers had not just a purely technical role, as they analysed the criminal files together with the prosecutors. In the 2013 report, SRI is more than clear by stating that „the juridical experts of SRI are involved, meaning that the joint analyses are not only limited to aspects of material law, but they also extended to procedural matters”. In fact, SRI involved their lawyers in matters of criminal procedures, not only their technical staff specialized in intercepting and monitoring some suspects. Which Kovesi denied in Brussels...
