The Ministry of Justice has published Friday evening on the institution site, after the HG. 410 from 9 June 2017, relating to the declassification of SIPA archive appeared in the Official Monitor, two reports and an annex for one of them. Specifically, Minister Tudorel Toader has declassified and made public the 096 Report regarding the activity of the Commission made by OMJ no. 1.348/C from 31 may 2007, modified by OMJ no. 1489/C from 11.06.2007, which appeared exclusively in the Evenimentul zilei, but also the 0097 Report regarding the Commission's activity made by OMJ 2418/C on 24 September 2007, and also the minute 087 from 10.04.2008 at the headquarters of the National Administration of Penitentiaries.
Pruna was playing classification
The first thing that needs to be explained is that the Commission's Chiuariu-Predoiu Report from 2008 was at the level of secret service until 2016, when it was passed in a higher class, being stamped with SECRET.
The Minister of Justice at that time was Raluca Pruna, Monica Macovei's former collaborator, who is suspect in this document. This gesture of Raluca Pruna raises big question marks regarding the compliance with legislation on the classification and preservation of the documents with secret character. Why did the Minister Raluca Pruna felt the need to "bury" even deeper a report which highlighted some possible offences? Declassification of the three documents by the current Minister of Justice Tudorel Toader is the consequence of shocking disclosures made in Evenimentul zilei, by journalist Dan Andronic regarding the SIPA archive. The importance of the facts recorded exclusively by EVZ has been confirmed also by the DIICOT, which has opened an investigation "in rem".
She proposed a HG, and then forgot
As I said, the 096 report's declassification from 2008 highlights yet another shocking information: in 2016, Raluca Prună, former Minister of Justice in the Cioloș Government tried to save her friend Monica Macovei!
In the summer of 2016, Minister Raluca Pruna announced that it takes a regulatory action of major importance for the abolition of SIPA archive. The GD project, she said, responded to the needs mentioned by creating a Commission which, with Celerity, was supposed to inventory the documents from the archive of the DGPA and transmit them according to their specificity, to the competent institutions.
In 27.07.2016, appear in the press the first references to the project thought by Raluca Pruna and her team regarding the SIPA archive. In fact, this was just another way to wander into the SIPA archive, the place where were stored over 5.000 archive units on career and life of hundreds of magistrates, politicians, journalists.
Here's the enlightening fragment from the Government Decision project, which Minister Raluca Pruna wanted to pass in July-August 2016.
"At the Ministry of Justice level was considered necessary to issue a new normative act with the same value, which constitutes the basis for unsealing the archives of the former DGPA, its inventory, accessing documents of interest for litigants and distributing documents, i.e. the documents handover to the competent authorities" reads the draft.
Only instead of proceeding according to the law, Raluca Prună, after seeing the serious facts that Monica Macovei is accused of in the Commission report 096 Chiuariu-Predoiu, she made secret for the second time the document on which former Minister Catalin Predoiu wrote "Secret Service".
Serious mistakes of Minister Pruna
Raluca Prună left the GD project, waved to the press on 27.07.2016, and 18.08.2016 (after 3 weeks) passed the report signed by former Minister Catalin Predoiu at an upper-class grading, applying on the first page of the document the stamp SECRET. In her rush to bury the Report that accuses Macovei, Raluca Prună made several mistakes:
- She only put the stamp SECRET on the document’s first page
- Has not given a new number in 18.08.2016, when she secreted again the 096 Report, although the legislation in this respect is crystal clear.
- She didn't noticed the authorized institutions when she took note of the Commission Report of 2008, classified at that time just as the secret service, although it was about very serious Security Incidents and possible offences concerning the national safety law.
- She violated the law because she has not made the classification by a GD.
Will Tudorel Toader notify the Prosecutor?
The current declassification of Minister Tudorel Toader is of major importance, because it shows that the former Minister Raluca Pruna attempted to cover up what did during the period 2005-2006, Minister Monica Macovei, Judge Cristi Danileț, journalist Dan Tapalaga and the rest of their team, who had access and handled top secret documents from the archive of SIPA.
The question now asked is what will further do Minister Tudorel Toader? Will he seize the Prosecutor in case of security incidents related to SIPA archive?
Minister Monica Macovei and Dan Tapalagă. The object of the visit was that of verifying the entry and exit of secret documents of SIPA from the last quarter of 2003 and the first quarter of the following year. Were present at this activity the current head of SIPA Col. Marius Stoian (Ovidiu Ioan Stoian-head of SIPA at the time) and two officers or non-commissioned officers who were responsible for the archive. The Minister and the attendant were requested access documents to classified data (ORNISS certificates), Monica Macovei replied that her being a Minister does not need this, and Dan Tapalagă has not given any reply.
The Minister and her companion stood in the archive until 02.00 at night.
It has not been requested from the SIPA any kind of classified document. They, however, took the input-output register for secret and top secret documents, which means reported person names, very succinctly content, where originated and where it occurred (what beneficiaries have been). At departure (the two) have taken this input-output register that was returned to SIPA after Prosecutor Dobocan took over as director of the service. (...)
