Former Social Democrat Prime Minister (PM) launched a website about his three criminal files, the local press reports today (Weds).
Nastase, the current president of the Social Democratic Party National Council, who has been convicted of corruption in two cases and acquitted in the third, says the charges against him were manufactured and claims not to be responsible of any wrongdoings. He says he is a victim of President Traian Basescuís revenge. The two competed in the 2000 presidential elections when Nastase lost.
The former PM invites readers to learn about "unbelievable facts known by very few and yet completely ignored by the majority of the public".
The motto of www.codulzambaccian.ro (Zambaccian Code) website reads: "The real story of the political harassement of Adrian Nastase, former prime minister of Romania."
Nastase says the facts presented on the website unveil the network of endless judiciary† procedures, improvised trials and false information that were leaked to the public by those who, elected by the peole, abuse their powers.
On the main page, one may read: "The obstruction of justice does not eliminate corruption, but makes it stronger."
The website presents the three corruption files "Quality Trophee", "Zambaccian File" and the most notorious "Aunt Tamara File". From the main page, the real aunt of Adrian Nastase, is seen smiling to readers.
The former PM has been sentenced to two years in prison without the execution of the sentence in the "Quality Trophee" file. Nastase has been accused by prosecutors that he had organised a conference with participation fees, that went towards financing his electoral campaign in 2000.
In the Zambaccian File, Nastase and his wife Dana had been sentenced to three years in jail suspended. The couple has been accused of bribe taking and custom document forgery for the refurbishment of their apartment in Zambaccian Street in Bucharest with undecleared goods from China.
Nastase has been cleared of all charges in the Aunt Tamara File, where he has been accused of taking a 400,000 US dollar bribe from a party member to be appointed head of the fiscal body. Nastase always said the money had come form his Aunt Tamara, who left him her fortune.
