    However, sad as it is, even after the Romanian Government investigates, i doubt if anything will come out of it, as far as the victims are concerned.
    He will still be back home in Romania. The most his career path dented a little.
    The Romanian Government may compensate the victims.
    But still no true justice will be done.
    Because he is a diplomat.

    Don't think they will act blur, since this happen in SG they will at least have to let SG's gov know what is the outcome of their investigation. Weather we agreed with their outcome or not is another matter.

    Much of what the Romanian govt does with this case will tell on its reputation. It either reinforces the perception that it is corrupt or that it is a upright and decent govt willing to make things right. We shall see. Action speaks louder than words.

    1. He hit and run one person.
    2. He hit and run 2 other persons.
    3. He abandoned his car and called police and lied that his car has been stolen.
    4. He run away.

    It shows how much a coward he is and his devoid of integrity.

    This Romanian article seems to be unbiased, as at the end, the writer was wondering why the diplomat was allowed to leave Singapore while the visit to the karaoke was not related to his function, and thus doesn't fall under the immunity rule:

    lots of people seem to want to speak out against Singapore's handling of the situation...seems like they want to find something to criticise the government...are they really interested in justice?

    Allegations 'entirely false'



    ROMANIAN Charge d'Affaires Silviu Ionescu, who has been identified as the driver of the car involved in a hit-and-run accident that left one person dead and two others injured last December, has made very serious allegations against the integrity of the Singapore Government, said the Ministry of Foreign Affairs on Thursday.
    An MFA spokesman on Thursday said that Dr Ionescu had in a recent interview with a television station back in Romania, alleged that the case against him was a 'set-up' by the Singapore Government because he had been reporting on political activities here.
    'Dr Ionescu had alleged that there had been a similar case in 2007, when he was also accused of being the driver in a hit-and-run accident, but was eventually let off as he had an alibi at that time,] said the MFA spokesman.
    MFA, which summoned Mr Aurelian Neagu, Romanian Ambassador to Singapore, to the ministry on Thursday, told the envoy that Dr Ionescu 'had made very serious allegations against the integrity of the Singapore Government which MFA categorically rejected as lacking any basis in fact.'
    'These allegations were also a gross insult to the victims of the two accidents,' said the ministry's spokesman, who added that Dr Ionescu's claim that he had been accused of being the driver in a hit-and-run accident in 2007 is 'entirely false.'
    The spokesman pointed out that records showed that the Romanian Embassy vehicle was involved in two traffic accidents in 2007. The first was a minor non-injury accident where the driver was not Dr Ionescu and the other driver did not wish to pursue the matter.
    In the second case, it was established then that Dr Ionescu, who was the driver, was not at fault and action was taken against the other driver involved in the accident.
    'These facts clearly show that Dr Ionescu's claims are fictitious and at no time was he ever accused by the Police of being the driver in a hit-and-run accident in 2007.'
    MFA also asked Ambassador Neagu for more information on the status of the criminal proceedings in Romania against Dr Ionescu, and on the Romanian system of investigations and prosecutions.
    'The next step will depend on the Romanian Government's response to our requests and the outcome of the Coroner's Inquiry,' said the spokesman.

    ROMANIA responded swiftly yesterday to a request from Singapore, lifting immunity for an embassy staff member here and distancing itself from remarks made by its former charge d'affaires over a fatal car accident last year.

    It said that since former charge d'affaires Silviu Ionescu has been suspended from his diplomatic job, it will be up to him to decide whether to return to Singapore for a coroner's inquiry next month.

    A Romanian Ministry of Foreign Affairs (Romanian MFA) spokesman told The Straits Times yesterday that his country would do 'everything possible in order to maintain and enhance good relations between Romania and Singapore'.

    The spokesman, Mr Lucian Rosenfeld, also dismissed allegations by Dr Ionescu in a recent television interview that he had been 'set up' by the Singapore Government.

    Romania 'firmly disassociates itself' from those accusations, Mr Rosenfeld said.

    Dr Ionescu has been identified as a suspect in two hit-and-run accidents last Dec 15 involving a Romanian Embassy car.

    Stupidest guy I've ever seen, embarrassing his own govt by claiming that he was doing political reporting in Singapore, thus making himself the sacrificial lamb.
