Daniel Dragomir, a former officer of the Romanian Intelligence Service (SRI), was sent to court by prosecutors from the Directorate for Investigating Organized Crime and Terrorism (DIICOT) in the “Black Cube” case.
He is charged with setting up an organized crime group, inciting to illegal access to a computer system, inciting to the unauthorized transfer of computer data, and cooperation in other illegal operations. According to the indictment, Daniel Dragomir tried to compromise the former head of the National Anticorruption Directorate (DNA), Laura Codruta Kovesi, president Klaus Iohannis, and SRI head Eduard Hellvig, Digi24 reported.
According to the prosecutors, Dragomir got into contact with representatives of the Israeli company Black Cube, aiming to denigrate the people he considered responsible for his indictment by DNA. One of these people was former DNA chief prosecutor Laura Codruta Kovesi. He made the Israelis believe that the operation, called “Tornado,” was supported by the president and the head of the SRI. However, the prosecutors claim that there is no evidence of state institutions being involved in this operation.
Previously, three employees of the Israeli company Black Cube - Yossi Barkshtein, Ron Weiner and David Geclowicz - entered into plea agreements with Romanian prosecutors in this case, and received suspended sentences, according to local Agerpres.
Daniel Dragomir fled Romania in June, just before being sentenced to 3 years and 10 months in prison in another case.
