Re: is the commission of crimes of corruption and service provided and punishable under the Criminal Code:
I noticed on the DNA information held under the supervision authorities
and animal protection (ASPA), budgetary institution subordinated mayor
of Bucharest, brought into being in December 2013 acquisition of food
for shelter dogs from Bragadiru inmates using a Another CPV code than
usual. City Hall has opened a new shelter for dogs with joint holders
Bragadiru with the support of the National Administration of
According to the above-licitatie.ro statement
attached to the file, ASPA acquired on December 6, 2013 'pet food' and
in December 18, 2013, 12 days later, ASPA has purchased 12,000 kilograms
of .... 'animal feed', ie food for guinea pigs and other rodents, pigs
or cows, feed the, Under the law, for farm animals. Only accepted
accounting code for pets (dogs, cats) is called 'pet food'. Using a
different accounting code at the 'feed', was done with the obvious
purpose of circumventing legislative acts under which procurement takes
place, because I had to carry a bidding procedure.
CPV code to purchase the same product basically two acquisitions were
made directly, the total probably exceeds direct acquisition threshold.
Change framing the food was made with the written approval of the mayor
Sorin Oprescu. Company from which they purchased 12,000 kg 'feed' for
dogs, worth £ 45,600 (about 10,000 euros), on 18/12/2013, called SC YOUR
STUFF SRL and how progress was offline.
II. SITE database and server
I called investigative bodies to consider the following:
a) ASPA acquired through direct acquisition procedure, a server, a
database and a website, each worth U.S. $ 100,000 each, were produced
and paid at the end of 2013. Their purchase prices are huge, much more
than their actual cost.
b) site server and the database are in
working even now, although it is stipulated in the contract, which it is
also a violation of the rules in force. Moreover, on 02/14/2014, ASPA
received from DSV Giurgiu a fine of £ 5000 for the 'No proof remedy made
public on the site. " Fine refers to the obligation to make the site
ASPA all dogs captured and taken to shelters where they are because you
want to take people to not have to go to all the shelters to look for
them, but where they are taken strictly. In the absence of this site, at
which everyone could access easy and convenient, citizens are forced to
spend huge amounts of money and a lot of time and nerves sometimes
absent from work to travel to the three shelters in Bucharest,
Mihailesti and Pallady.
c) Furthermore, all three products were
purchased from the same company, newly established, declared
non-taxable. The problem is that at least one of the bills is
fictitious, because the numbers add up in the first two bills placed the
company in a position to pay VAT.
d) We believe the company
has been specifically established for this acquisition and future
acquisitions such. Besides, the invoice number ASPA is no. 1, 2, 3.
Probably these firms are founded by people close to the three
defendants, the money going ... 'family'.
e) The website and
database were acquired on 11/13/2013, although Law 258/2013 clearly
state since 9.26.2013 (!) as the database for dogs with a master's
ANSVSA you do not ASPA.
Thus, Article 13 index 3, paragraph 4 states:
'Register of stray dogs is managed by the College of Veterinarians. "
The Law 258/2013 also specifies in Article II: "Upon the entry into
force of this Act, any contrary provision be repealed. ' So and HCGMB
no. 145/2013 is repealed. However, ASPA is bound HCGMB 145/2013 (passed
in May May 2013 but abolished in September 2013) of Bucharest all dog
owners to register dogs from ASPA in a database on a particular site .
Only at the beginning of 2014 ASPA was ordered media not to register
dogs with dogs in Bucharest, they must actually go veterinarians to
register dogs! A special record kept of ASPA away dogs and dogs forced
owners to come on Calea Calarasi at its headquarters, although the law
does not allow, in order to justify the need for the site, database and
server all purchased fraudulently November?
III. Dacia Duster.
On cars Dacia Duster irregularities noticed are:
a) ASPA bought 3 cars Dacia Duster type 'utility' type instead to
purchase vehicles 'utility transport animals'. Although legislation
('Ordinance Boc "), the IMF agreement, allows only the purchase of
vehicles for the transport of animals and prohibiting the purchase of
cars for transportation management in the euro 3.3 million received in
2013, ASPA has spent 54,000 euros fraudulent acquisition of three cars
Dacia Duster transport Treeroiu directors, Bancescu and Ancuta. Each
Dacia Duster worth 18,000 euros each.
b) Factory Dacia factory
not 'Dacia Duster cars vans to transport animals'. Does not even have a
prototype 'van to transport animals'! ASPA management used a trick here,
namely, that Dacia Duster purchased are recorded as 'vans' in the
registration certificate. These cars Dacia Duster 'vans', equipped with
two seats in the back are mostly used by courier companies to transport
small packages. The cars are designed to carry workers accompanied by
tools. But animal! If it was 'utility machines for animal transport',
was written this in 'Registration Certificate'. However, this is not
mentioned. I attach the certificate to the file, according to which
Dacia Duster listed in category 'N1, van'. The car is not van has rear
windows instead of plate, no ventilation (ventilation for animals) is
not fitted with lattice partition between the cockpit and animals has no
place for cages.
c) Directors do not have such cars. It is
clear that directors are not going to catch and transport the dogs
later, because it is not their job function. For this there are
professionals. These cars were achitizionate fraudulent.
IV. PRIVATE pound.
The three companies involved are:
One. SC Elen Basic Bussines company with headquarters based in St.
Aurel Botea no. 3, CUI 30,441,432, with the object of business
Two. About Best Marketing Ltd based in Bucharest
Blvd Burebista, no. 2, Bucharest, CUI 16,678,884, with the object of
'consulting business and management'
Three. About Terra Magique
Ltd. located in Bucharest, str dam Sadului no. 7 A-7 B, sector 2, with
the object of 'intermediation in the sale of furniture, household goods
and ironmongery', CUI 17,606,614.
I asked layout verification in the following aspects:
a) a dog catching oversized Price: 219 lei. How it came to determining
the value? We believe that the price is exaggerated and that do not
reflect true costs. Most dogs are gentle and can be easily caught by
hand. Even for those who are caught with nets, catching costs can not
rise at a price so high. FOUR PAWS Foundation has publicly stated that
this money can perform many more actions, namely, can 'catch, sterilize,
postoperative stay and carry' the same dog. ASPA Probably no hidden
financial interests public money ASPA budget is huge, ie 18.6 million.
ASPA management found, asttfel a way to circumvent the face of public
funds allocated for 2013 ASPA and the friends and relatives of direct
their obvious purpose is to obtain financial benefits, both ASPA and 3
private companies. By catching the pound dogs get private money is easy!
With four dogs caught (219 lei / dog caught) win company works as an
honest man in a month. And in a few months can raise his villa! For our
money, the taxpayers.
b) There are great questions and doubts
on how did the non-public auction in August-September 2013 on the
acquisition of private companies by the pound, organized at the ASPA, in
Calea Calarasi. 179 sector 3. How were the contracts awarded by the
three companies preferred by ASPA leadership? ASPA management has
planned it megaafacere public money on private pound, taking advantage
of the fact that the tender was non-public.
c) The three
companies have become overnight winning the auction for private pound
apparently had nothing related to animals before auction, with only 7
employees. By rendering-services contracts signed with ASPA probably
'wrinkle' enormous amounts of money into the pockets of ASPA management
support private dog track, given that they carry out illegal activity
inconsistent with the objects of said. We believe that in fact we are
dealing with a 'misappropriation' under the Criminal Code. From our
sources pound private companies had contracts with the ASPA at the word
'dog' in the subject activity. ASPA was allowed to contract with such
firms that deal, according to the documents, the ... 'blacksmith' and
'housekeeping'? What experience has recommended for dogs got work?
d) Probably pound lead private firms is composed of close acquaintances
ASPA management because the pound to pound the state for the movement
on the last cars even before two months of winning the auction (June
2013), to 'learn' to catch dogs , according to our sources.
ASPA conducted in the month of December 2013 payments totaling 700,000
euros to veterinary practices and the pound private firms. This amount
was properly attributed?
f) There are suspicions and on the
number of dogs caught in real life. It 'flashy' pound that private firms
declaring in most acts .... same number of dogs caught. Practice shows
that it is impossible for them to catch the same number of dogs every
Compared to the above, we requested the investigation of the facts mentioned.
