Today the România Liberă pays attention to the decision taken by the National Anticorruption Directorate (DNA) regarding the criminal investigation against Viorel Hrebenciuc and Robert Negoita for illegally financing the campaign of Mircea Geoană.
The publication quotes data from the indictment made by prosecutors in the case of InterAgro employer, Ioan Niculae, he too under investigation in the same case.
"I give you the money for campaign and you’ll give me the state".
This was, according to the newspaper, ‘The agreement between Niculae and PSD’, that results from DNA investigation.
The Evenimentul Zilei also dedicates the leading article to the recent criminal accusation against the businessman Ioan Niculae, but it examines in detail the one referring to the national economy undermining the mediation of gas export trade in Romania.
In the foreground it is shown a different name in the investigation carried out by the Directorate for Investigation of Organised Crime and Terrorism (DIICOT), the former Undersecretary of State for Economy, Dan Victor Alesandru, called by the Evenimentul Zilei"The mysterious man-bridge between Russia, Voiculescu and Ioan Niculae."
The publication justifies the presence in equation of the founding president of the Conservative Party by the fact that he would have forced the appointment of Dan Victor Alesandru.
The Adevărul publishes an exclusive interview with Dr. George Burnei, head of the Pediatric Orthopedic Clinic at the Marie Currie Hospital in Bucharest.
The Doctor-surgeon ‘Felt God in the surgery room’ in many complicated cases solved throughout his career by divine grace, he says,. George Burnei calls some decisions taken during the surgery moments of revelation, possible only by man encountering the divine.
The Curierul National asks on the front page "How will the stock exchange end by Mayan calendar?"
The newspaper takes as a reference point 21 December 2012, an apocalyptic day in the mentioned calendar, and tries to figure out how the stock exchange will look by then, in the context of international anxiety for the imminence of a global financial cataclysm.
To support the analysis there are 10 brokers and analysts, who conclude: 2012 will be a volatile year, when the European shocks will be even higher than the American issues.
