Romanian MEP denies corruption accusation brought by Sunday Times

romaniantimes.at

Romanian MEP Adrian Severin denies corruption accusations brought by British newspaper Sunday Times and threatens to go to court against the journalists.

Romanian MP of the European Parliament, Adrian Severin, told Mediafax, in reaction to the Sunday Times investigation "lobby for money", in which 3 MEPs accepted money for bringing amendments to European laws:

"It's false!"
"I am also analysing with lawyers the possibility to sue them for defamation and libel in the UK".

In a TV show at Realitatea tv, he said:
"It's a set-up, an undercover manoeuvre of a scandal journal, which constantly attacks the credibility of the European Parliament."

Adrian Severin, member of the social democrat party, who was Romania's foreign affairs minister in 1996-1997, is accused of having taken 12,000 Euros for the amendment.

The European Parliament announced on Sunday the launch of an investigation into the corruption accusations brought by the Sunday Times against three MEPs: Romanian social democrat Adrian Severin, Austrian conservative Ernst Strasser (who resigned on Sunday from all mandates at the request of his party OeVP) and Slovenian Zoran Thaler.

Romania's former justice minister, Monica Macovei, now member of the European parliament for the ruling party Liberal Democrat Party (PDL), asked in a press release on Sunday for the resignation of Adrian Severin from the European parliament,  and to be investigated by the Romanian anti-corruption department.

The Sunday Times published an investigation showing that three MEPs have accepted money in exchange for introducing amendments to European laws, from fake lobby firm representatives, which turned out to be investigative journalists.
