Hexi Pharma managing director Flori Dinu placed under house arrest
The Bucharest Sector 5 Court turned down on Saturday the request of the General Prosecution Office to have managing director of drug maker Hexi Pharma placed under pre-trial detention, ordering her under house arrest instead, Agerpres reports.
The decision is not final, but Dinu will be released from police custody upon the expiry of the 24-hour arrest warrant issued for her on Friday.
The Criminal and Forensic Investigation Section of the Prosecutor's Office attached to the High Court of Cassation and Justice remanded Dinu Friday night on 99 counts of repeated deceptive activities and 29 counts of deception and participation in forestalling disease combat, referring her to court for a proposed 30-day pre-trial arrest.
The General Prosecution Office asserts that the Hexi Pharma managing director, who was mainly responsible for the company's sales activity, acting at the instigation of company owner Dan Condrea and knowing that the products do not meet the specifications of the labels, coordinated the entire staff involved in the promotion of the products and mediated the negotiation and conclusion of supply contracts, misleading the representatives of medical facilities that purchased the products. The crimes were perpetrated by fraudulent means, represented by the labels of the non-compliant products and the offers sent to the deceived companies, directly or through the portal e-licitatii.ro, the General Prosecution Office informs in a release. The damage incurred on the injured entities is in excess of 28 million lei, representing the non-compliant products supplied under contracts concluded between June 2012 — April 2016 by the company under suspicion and numerous health care facilities.
