Interior minister Carmen Dan said on Friday that the document published by Rise Project allegedly originating from the Directorate General for Internal Protection (DGPI), linking PSD chairman Liviu Dragnea to Tel Drum company, hasn’t been released by DGPI and hasn’t been either registered at the Teleorman Police Inspectorate, as it mentions the document’s heading. The minister announced that she would take all legal actions that those who published the document should either prove it to withdraw it.
“I have conducted several checks. That document has the heading of the Teleorman County Police Inspectorate. I searched the paper in the inspectorate’s list of documents and the document is not institutionally registered there. I also conducted checks at the Directorate General for Internal Protection (DGPI), which has already announced it had not released that document,” said the Interior minister, adding that the document is not figuring in its archive. “The natural conclusion is that the document has been made for other purposes. It has been pre-edited for other interests than the normal ones,” Carmen Dan stated.
The minister also said that she would take all legal actions so that those who published the document should either prove it or withdraw it.
“For this document is still rumored as originating from DGPI and because I consider it affects the ministry’s image, I will take all legal actions so that those who published the document should either prove it or withdraw it. I refer to those who say that this journalistic investigation is based on a document issued by DGPI,” she added.
However Dan avoided a clear answer when asked if she will sue the journalists from Rise Project./IBNA
