“Companies do not quit the country just because the president has suddenly lost his temper. Let’s approach the matter reasonably and think of normal functioning of the state,” Ponta told reporters.
On Thursday, Basescu told the Romanian government “to prepare for nationalisation of LUKOIL’s refinery,” if the Russian company, accused of violation of the country’s tax legislation, decided to shut down the refinery.
The damage of LUKOIL’s tax fraud to the economy of Romania may exceed 230 million euro, Basescu said.
On October 2, Romania inspected the refinery as part of an investigation into tax evasion and money laundering. After the inspection, the country’s authorities ordered the plant to suspend operations and seized the crude and products of the refinery. On Monday, LUKOIL challenged the seizure of these assets in a local court.
On Tuesday, LUKOIL restarted operations at the plant as arrest of company’s banking accounts and commercial stock at the plant was suspended.
