Ex-President of Romania recognized as an agent of the communist intelligence agency

Investigators found records written by Basescu, which stated that he was reporting information about his colleagues and the foreigners he met. The politician denies everything.

The Bucharest Court of Appeal found former Romanian President Traian Basescu an informant of the secret police of the communist intelligence agency, Balkan Insight reports.

The court confirmed the conclusion of the investigation by the National Council for the Study of Secret Police Archives (CNSAS).

"I accept the verdict of the court as it is. I will appeal it to a higher court," the politician said.

According to Romanian intelligence and CNSAS documents, the Communists recruited Basescu in 1972 when he was a student at the Navy Academy. His file was destroyed in 1979 after Basescu joined the ruling Communist Party of Romania.

Basescu was president of Romania between 2004 and 2014.

Note in June 2016 Basescu received citizenship of Moldova. The decree was signed by the ex-president of Moldova Nicolae Timofti. In January 2017, the new President of Moldova, Igor Dodon, deprived Basescu of citizenship, writes korrespondent.net.
