ControversyEdit

On 10 October 2017, the Romanian National Anticorruption Directorate announced that Dinu Pescariu will be prosecuted in the file of taking over ‘Cutezatorii’ sports base in Bucharest. He is being investigated, under judicial control, for taking over the sports base illegally and reportedly paying a much smaller rental fee for it than the market rate.[1][2]
