Another blinding result for justice...

Aoleo!!!! As clear as mud and another blinding result from the Roumanian justice system... aid given to Popa is just supposition, huh? Brilliant! Ripping off a few million people is okay then. And of COURSE Vintu can influence the investigation. As long as he has breath in his body and as long as he has money to bribe the judges, then he has influence.

I am unable to jusge whether I believe Vlas is guilty for I do not know enough about the case. What I do know, however,... [Lire la suite]
