Ionescu to remain in prison while awaiting trial
05:55 AM Aug 19, 2010
Former Romanian diplomat Silviu Ionescu will remain in prison as he awaits trial for two hit-and-run accidents in Singapore last year.
After many hours of deliberating the evidence, a Romanian court decided yesterday to extend the warrant of arrest for the 50-year-old Ionescu.
The session began on Tuesday, with Ionescu and his attorney, Mr Nelu Tasca, again arguing against what they said was the lack of incriminating evidence.
The defence counsel highlighted the point that a key witness in the coroner's inquiry in Singapore, who had identified Ionescu as the alleged driver of the car on the night of the accidents, was not named in the prosecutor's case file.
However, the judge ruled against Ionescu's plea.
Mr Tasca has already taken his case to the Bucharest Appeal Court, which is Ionescu's last chance to get his arrest warrant revoked.
Ionescu's trial is scheduled to resume on Oct 6. He has been charged with culpable homicide, making false statements and leaving the site of an accident. Claudia Craiu in Bucharest
