Girls, to be asked by the DA office about the "gift tax"

[March 1] According to our sources from Bucharest, the girls from the team may be asked to come at DA office and speak about the "30% gift tax", imposed by Belu to the team.

Oana Petrovschi have confirmed this afternoon that her lawyer was not informed about this.

Oana's lawyer, Mrs. Dana Pavelescu, have the permission to take part at all hearings, but each time they have had "faulted" her, one way or another. At Belu's previous hearings, she have seen as Belu already knows some parts of previous statements made by Oana few hours ago; supposing that "somebody"helped Belu seen them, before Dana Pavelescu have entered in the DA office.
Other time, they have pretended that Oana's lawyer could not be contacted on time to attend hearings, only by chance she have managed to assist at Bitang's hearings at the DA office. After that-and mrs.Dana Pavelescu reports on press about not-so-sincere Bitang's attitude, the lawyer's of B&B have tried their best to keep Mrs.Pavelescu as far as possible from B&B and their "sincere" testimonials. ...

About the B&B "honest attitude" in front of the law, everybody could saw on TV, at their first hearings on judge, when they have managed to avoid some answers (Bitang-refuse to answer if she got any money from other girls and Belu not doing the math-dropping the total from more than $7000 to $4500 he gets from Oana-just two out of quite a few examples).

The Romanian Justice, especially the DA institution, is still dominated by the "old guys", most of them being named during former neo-communist regime of President Iliescu (who lost last November elections). The new Justice Minister , Mrs.Monica Macovei, have started a hard and long fight against old structures, but this will take time and a lot of energy, to bring the system up to the European Union standards (or at least close enough to fit minimum requirements).

In the meantime, the old structures still work for their former masters and/or their former friends, like the B&B's, which were the servants of Iliescu regime, who used them at maximum, for the image and benefit of the neo-communist regime.This is what friends are for...

The propaganda-alike machine still working for them, both tabloid "Pro Sport" and "Antena 1" now taking B&B side- only one year after they have dragged Oana Petrovschi into this story, airing for a week daily reports with her story- and now trashing her image at maximum or painting B&B as models coaches. These two "media's" have aired or printed today same fake "news", pretending like they already know that "Belu will not face any criminal charges" for the bribes taken from girls "because he is not a State-employed and those money can not be considered a bribe and a felony".

Taking the girls hard earned money for past 15 years (if we speak about after-1989 Revolution only) is at least immoral, if not a felony. In other cases, which Oana Petrovschi lawyer can remind to the DA, even employers of private companies were bring to trial for the asking of "gifts" ; also there is a question of "imposing" or not: is there any girl(s) which did not pay anything, and still manage to go to paid contest(s)? Such a simple question, which nobody dares to ask (because they know the answer), will help solve the "mystery": If you don't pay, you don't go (any more); is not a voluntary "gift" , it's more like a pimp-protection tax-as a Bucharest newspaper have printed (previous Reports).

The DA office still have to hear other girls testimonials and maybe the final decision will be a different one from what B&B hope and spread around with their friends help. Not that anybody really want (or believe) that Belu will face any severe punishment, but at least some public excuses from him to girls , maybe some charities-donation from him (but real ones and some important amounts, like selling some of his cars or something) , will make things easier. Not (any more) the "easy way", like simply the manipulation of some (stupid) press people, which are so easy to lip b&b shoes any time, many times...
