EXCLUSIVE. Ponta checkmated Kovesi: DNA cannot investigate offenses of tax evasion and customs fraud anymore!
Competences of the National Anticorruption Directorate (DNA) have been drastically reduced by the Government of Prime Minister Ponta, who has recently decided that the DNA prosecutors would not investigate offenses of tax evasion and customs fraudanymore. Instead, such offenses will be investigated by the prosecutor offices in the 42 tribunals across the country.
The DNA prosecutors will only retain competences required for fighting the abuse of office (against the individual’s interest through limiting access to rights, against the public interest and in a qualified form).
The decision was enacted by an Emergency Ordinance published on 26 June 2013 in the Official Gazette, number 377.
