Israeli firm’s workers held in Romania for spying

Romania / AFP

Two workers from an Israeli intelligence company have been arrested in Romania for trying to intimidate the head of the national anti-corruption agency and hacking e-mails, officials said on Wednesday.
An arrest warrant was issued on Sunday for Belgian David Geclowitz and Israeli-born Ron Weiner, who holds a French passport. Both work for Israeli firm Black Cube.
“An investigation has been launched and two people have been arrested,” said MihaelaPorime, a spokeswoman for prosecutors fighting organised crime.
“It’s linked to a failed intimidation bid,” added Laura Kovesi, the chief prosecutor of Romania’s National Anticorruption Directorate (DNA). Kovesi, a 42-year-old former professional basketball player, is spearheading an unprecedented anti-corruption drive in one of Europe’s poorest and most graft-prone nations.
