Cercetarile procurorilor romani confirma acuzatiile ONU   octombrie 31st, 2009

 

Postez in exclusivitate o dezvaluire marca Ohanesian

 

Mozer Al Kassar era in dosarul 628/d/p/2005 Armamentul. Prin el procurorii au ajuns la Viktor Bout. Cei de la DEA l-au prins si era ancorat in politia spaniola. Kovesi nu a permis deplasarea procurorilor in USA la audierile lui Al Kassar si nici in Spania. Voiau sa plece chiar pe banii lor si acolo si in Italia, la Torino, dar nu au mai apucat. Au fost demisi toti. Vorba lui Stancev: s-au apropiat prea tare de Basescu.

Stenogramele scoase la iveala de ziarul “Gardianul” sunt cat se poate de reale. Sunt in jur de 28 de pagini extrase din 2 dosare SSID legate de Hayssam, Bout si traficul international de armament. Dosarul Armamentul 628/D/P/2005 si Fuga lui Hayssam 121-D-P-2007. Inregistrarile nu au fost facute de SRI, Coldea umbland dupa ele cu gura cascata. Stenogramele sunt clasificate. Codrut Olaru a trimis dosarul 121 in instanta fara stenograme, dupa ce a fost disjuns de 628. Olaru spune ca nu le mai are la arhiva.

In perioada ianuarie-februarie 2008, DEA SUA sau DIA Defence Intelligence Agency a lucrat la DIICOT cu procurorii si cu IGPFR. Pentru arestarea traficantului Viktor Bout. DEA a pus conditia sa nu fie implicat SRI, deoarece cum reiese si din dosarul Armamentul, sereistii colaborau cu si acopereau teroristii si traficantii Bout, Hayssam si ai lor. Viktor Bout a fost identificat si arestat in Thailanda, in urma interceptarilor aprobate de Curtea de Apel Bucuresti. Tot acolo sunt si stenogramele “Gardianul”.

Persoane audiate in dosarul Armamentul:  Hayssam, Yassin, Mustafa Tartoussi, Taher, Stamen Stanchev. Mai sunt si alti bulgari audiati in dosare. Multi arabi din Romania implicati. Dosar 628/D/P/2005. S-a dispus urmarirea penala in REM fata de 3 persoane, alaturi de Omar Hayssam, pentru trafic international de armament. Dosarul 628 este disjuns din dosarul 121/D/P/2007, numit si Fuga lui Hayssam, avut in lucru de Ciurea.

Omar Hayssam a oferit informatii despre contrabanda cu armament din Yemen. Legat de marinarii arestati in 2004 in Yemen si scosi de Hayssam. Acestia sunt legati si de Viktor Bout si de adjunctul sau din Ucraina. Cand a iesit din dosarul Fuga lui Hayssam, Ciurea a fost chestionata de generalul Coldea.

Ultimii doi audiati, Mukles Omar si Yassin Mohammad.

Atat comentariile, cat si ping-urile sunt inchise.

The Complaint alleges that SOLOMONYAN and SPIES, with
the help of KHARABADZE, COLPANI, DEMARE, and other unidentified
co-conspirators were actively preparing to import RPGs, SAMs,

York City, three were delivered in Los Angeles, and two were
delivered in Fort Lauderdale. The weapons sold to the CI include
AK-47 MA-90 Sporter; an AK-47 made by GN
ROMARM SA/CUGIR; and an AK-47, BA 36 0543, ARSENAL, as well as
two conversion kits intended to convert both AK-47’s into fully-
automatic machineguns.

Romanian AK-47’s, the „WASR 10”, Whatever you call it, it Shoots
August 27th, 2009 | Author: admin

People write and ask all the time, do the Romanian AK’s make good survival rifles or not? And why are they so much less money than the others? Both good questions, with pretty straight forward answers.
First, the cost question. They cost less because there are a lot more of them. They are a little different in that the ones floating around say from China. The Chinese version can’t come in any more, they have not been imported for going on 20 years. The others, some are made here in the US, are generally a few hundred dollars more. The Polish versions are also out there, though not in the numbers of the Romanian ones. Some people say the quality of the rifles is not on par with the others, after seeing tons of them, I would have to say that’s somewhat true, but keep this in mind, none of them are well done rifles. Even the top of the line AK is no masterpiece by a long shot. Also, the Romanian rifles are known as “WASR10s”. People need to understand what this means. There was a version of the AK being brought in while the infamous Clinton assault weapons ban was in place. These weapons in order to meet the criteria placed on them, only took a 10 rounds magazine. They were the original WASR 10’s. After the ban expired the recievers were milled out to allow them to take the standard AK-47 mag. This is why they have the “WASR 10″, name. Most come in from Century Arms. The best finish I have seen on an AK-47, was on a Polytech Legend, they have milled receivers like the first AK’s and the fit and finish is second to none as AK’s go.

These rifle shoot fine. They shoot anything that fits in the chamber. They are not a marks mans weapon of choice, but they are more than accurate enough. At say 100 yards, placing center hits on a standard B-27 target is no problem. All AK’s suffer from the same crude sites and a short site radius, its just part of the animal itself. At 50 yards, head shots are not hard. most of these rifles come with the standard oiled wood stock set, some did come in as folders with the distinct one wire looking butt stock. The AK-47 is the first in the long line of AK style weapons. The AK-47 is no longer in use as a front line weapon in Russia, they now have the AK-74, chambered in the 5.45mm caliber, compared to the short 7.62 AK-47. Most people have a liking for the 30 caliber round against the smaller lighter 22 caliber AK-74. These same people probably feel the same way about the M-16. These rifles that I have shot, run and run and run some more. That’s what you want.
Are they the best AK out there, no. But as a famous person once said, “If the western world melts down, give me an AK-47″. The Afghan’s clean them with boot laces and motor oil, that’s a tough rifle. The AK-47 makes its appearance everywhere terrorist’s abound. The reasons, which are very similar to one of the original questions here, is they are simple to shoot, simple to use, simple to clean and they can take a beating. The Romanian AK’s are no different. If you have a good supply of ammo, this is a great survival rifle, or a “just in case” rifle if things melt down.

ARMELE ROMANESTI UN PERICOL PENTRU SECURITATEA USA !
Romanian AK-47 Assault Rifles Fueling Gun Violence on US/Mexico Border, VPC Tells Congress
Enforcement of Existing Law that Could Help Stop the Proliferation and Smuggling of Military-Style Guns Favored by Mexican Drug Cartels

Romanian AK-47-type assault rifles that have become one of the favored weapons of Mexican drug cartels, Violence Policy Center (VPC) Legislative Director Kristen Rand told a Congressional subcommittee today.” Rand testified before the Western Hemisphere Subcommittee of the House Foreign Affairs Committee. The ban was first implemented by the George H.W. Bush Administration in 1989 and is separate from the now-expired federal assault weapons ban. It does not require congressional action to be enforced or modified.

„ATF is undermining its own law enforcement efforts on the U.S./Mexico border by allowing importers to skirt the assault weapons import ban, a law that was put in place to reduce the firepower available to U.S. drug traffickers. These weapons are coming into the country by the thousands, are being acquired by traffickers who smuggle them into Mexico, and are used to attack law enforcement, public officials, and innocent bystanders,” said Rand.

Perhaps a semi-auto AK clone would be more to your liking. You can get a Romanian WASR-3 in 7.62×39 for less than $350. It will fit all AK47 parts, and is just as inaccurate as the real thing. 🙂

– ROMARM AS CUGIR-
ROME (Reuters) – Italian customs officers seized more than 8,000 Kalashnikov assault rifles and other weapons on a ship headed to the United States, officials said Tuesday. The arms, worth about $7.15 million, were discovered aboard a ship arriving from Romania that pulled into the southern Italian port of Gioia Tauro on its way to the United States, Italy’s customs said in a statement. According to the travel documents, the arms belong to a large U.S. company with headquarters in the state of Georgia.
„We know that the destination was North America, but we don’t effectively know if that’s where the arms were going,” a customs official told RAI state television.
The arms were found inside three containers during a routine customs check earlier this week. They were confiscated due to discrepancies in the customs forms, but the news was only made public Tuesday.
The customs office said the weapons had been described as „common guns” instead of assault rifles and longer-range combat arms in the travel documentation. ($1-.8390 Euro)

L’article, citant les déclarations de M. Basescu, l’accuse d’avoir été le responsable de cet incendie et d‘avoir induit en erreur les autorités françaises afin de les empêcher de prouver la culpabilité du navire roumain qu’il dirigeait.

ROUMANIE • Comment le président roumain a berné les Français… il y a vingt-sept ans

PRESIDENT
TRAIAN BASESCU ancien capitaine de marinemarchande, ce dernier est à l’origine d’un incendie mémorable dans leport de Rouen. Un accident dont les circonstances restent plus quetroubles… Nicolas Sarkozy et son homologue roumain Traian Basescu, Bucarest le 4février 2008
AFP Cela s’est passé il y a exactement vingt-sept ans [en décembre 1981].L’actuel président de la Roumanie, Traian Basescu, en était à sonpremier périple en tant que capitaine de vaisseau. A peine trois moisaprès l’obtention de son brevet de capitaine de la marine marchande, ilavait reçu le commandement de l'”Arges”, un navire transportant dupétrole. Un voyage marqué par la poisse. Dans le port de Rouen, àl’embouchure de la Seine, l'”Arges” a pris feu lors du déchargement.L’incendie s’est propagé à 37 autres navires, et le cours de la Seine aété pollué par des hydrocarbures. Rapidement, les Français ontidentifié d’où était parti le feu et ouvert une enquête sur cetincident qui, par son ampleur, est resté dans les annales de l’histoirede la marine moderne.

La procédure judiciaire a durévingt-huit jours. „La justice française faisait son travail.C’est-à-dire que ce n’était pas à moi de prouver que la pollution nevenait pas de moi, mais aux autorités françaises de prouver que lapollution venait de moi”, témoignait Basescu le 23 juin 1998, dans uneinterview accordée à la chaîne de télévision Prima TV. C’est la seuleest unique fois où il est revenu sur cet épisode controversé de sacarrière de marin. „Le feu s’est rapidement propagé sur tout le bassindu port de Rouen, on voyait la colonne de feu depuis des kilomètres.Les enquêteurs se sont orientés vers notre navire parce que c’était leplus grand et que nous déchargions du brut au quai de la raffinerieShell, a-t-il raconté. J’ai dû m’expliquer tous les jours au tribunal,pendant presque un mois. Au final, la justice a été incapable deprouver la responsabilité de l'”Arges” dans cette affaire.”

Traian Basescu est autorisé à repartir en Roumanie, malgré des dégâtsévalués à quelque 12 millions de dollars. „A l’époque, nous étions toussous la surveillance de la Securitate, surtout les marins quivoyageaient à l’étranger”, a encore expliqué l’actuel présidentroumain. „A mon retour, j’ai dû longuement m’expliquer sur ce quis’était passé. Et maintenant je peux le dire : avant que les enquêteursfrançais ne montent sur le bateau, j’ai dissimulé les preuves de laresponsabilité de l'”Arges” dans l’incendie. A l’époque, beaucoup ausein de l’équipage étaient au courant. A Bucarest, nous avons même étéfélicités de notre attitude”, concluait Traian Basescu en 1998.

Pour d’autres, Traian Basescu ne s’est pas contenté de „berner lesFrançais” sur cette affaire. Tudor Danila, un ancien marin émigré auCanada dans les années 1980, a de nombreux doutes sur son parcoursainsi que sur la véritable mission de l'”Arges” à cette époque. „Dansla Roumanie communiste, pour partir à l’étranger juste après avoirobtenu son brevet de capitaine, il fallait avoir de solides appuis ausein du Parti communiste”, remarque-t-il.

TraianBasescu a reconnu à demi-mot que, durant sa carrière de commandant denavire, il avait effectué des „transports spéciaux”, sans s’étendre surleur nature. Selon Danila, il ne pouvait s’agir que du trafic d’armes :”Dans ce cas d’espèce, les ordres venaient directement de la Securitateet nous étions sous étroite surveillance tout le long du voyage.” Unechose est sûre, selon l’ancien marin : on ne saura jamais ce qui s’estvraiment passé à Rouen en 1981, ni ce que transportait exactementl'”Arges” à cette époque.

While a ship commander, Traian Basescu was suspected to be the origin of fire on several ships harbored in Rouen, France, on the Seine in 1982.

The fresh commander of the „Arges” ship prevented investigators’ access aboard until deleting the traces. He explained: „We changed something on the device before allowing French authorities access aboard, which made our guilt impossible to prove.” Basescu lied to the French, but not to the ex Securitate (Communist Secret Service in Romania). The commander recounted: „I explained to the Securitate officials what had happened to us there. (…) When getting home I couldn’t hide it. I had to tell at least the ship owner, I couldn’t lie to him and in the crew there were enough who knew what had happened.”

The Romanian ship left Rouen, but leaving behind an incident involving the Romanian state, a $ 12 million accusation against the ship, effecting from the fire that had caught 32 ships.

After the incident when Basescu had tried a bluff and won, in 1984 he got promoted on ‘Biruinta’, the admiral ship of the Romanian fleet. Therefore his changing his mind about resigning as President is no news, but only a bluff. (…) (A.M.)

The current Romanian President, Traian Basescu, was involved in an extraordinary accident in 1981/1982. The accident is still part of the history of the modern marine. 37 ships have been set on fire in the French Harbor Rouen and the Seine had been polluted by the ship led by the current Romanian President. Basescu is quiet about this event in his carrier, even though there has been a moment in time when he recognized the accident and admitted he had lied to the French authorities.

TRAIAN BASESCU ancien capitaine de marinemarchande, ce dernier est à l’origine d’un incendie mémorable dans leport de Rouen. Un accident dont les circonstances restent plus quetroubles… Nicolas Sarkozy et son homologue roumain Traian Basescu, Bucarest le 4février 2008
AFP Cela s’est passé il y a exactement vingt-sept ans [en décembre 1981].L’actuel président de la Roumanie, Traian Basescu, en était à sonpremier périple en tant que capitaine de vaisseau. A peine trois moisaprès l’obtention de son brevet de capitaine de la marine marchande, ilavait reçu le commandement de l'”Arges”, un navire transportant dupétrole. Un voyage marqué par la poisse. Dans le port de Rouen, àl’embouchure de la Seine, l'”Arges” a pris feu lors du déchargement.L’incendie s’est propagé à 37 autres navires, et le cours de la Seine aété pollué par des hydrocarbures. Rapidement, les Français ontidentifié d’où était parti le feu et ouvert une enquête sur cetincident qui, par son ampleur, est resté dans les annales de l’histoirede la marine moderne.

La procédure judiciaire a durévingt-huit jours. „La justice française faisait son travail.C’est-à-dire que ce n’était pas à moi de prouver que la pollution nevenait pas de moi, mais aux autorités françaises de prouver que lapollution venait de moi”, témoignait Basescu le 23 juin 1998, dans uneinterview accordée à la chaîne de télévision Prima TV. C’est la seuleest unique fois où il est revenu sur cet épisode controversé de sacarrière de marin. „Le feu s’est rapidement propagé sur tout le bassindu port de Rouen, on voyait la colonne de feu depuis des kilomètres.Les enquêteurs se sont orientés vers notre navire parce que c’était leplus grand et que nous déchargions du brut au quai de la raffinerieShell, a-t-il raconté. J’ai dû m’expliquer tous les jours au tribunal,pendant presque un mois. Au final, la justice a été incapable deprouver la responsabilité de l'”Arges” dans cette affaire.”

Traian Basescu est autorisé à repartir en Roumanie, malgré des dégâtsévalués à quelque 12 millions de dollars. „A l’époque, nous étions toussous la surveillance de la Securitate, surtout les marins quivoyageaient à l’étranger”, a encore expliqué l’actuel présidentroumain. „A mon retour, j’ai dû longuement m’expliquer sur ce quis’était passé.

Sena curge, urmele rămân

ERORILE COMANDANTULUI BÅSESCU, ÎN ARHIVELE FRANCEZE
Traian Băsescu nu a minţit afirmând că, în 1981, petrolierul „Argeş” pe care îl comanda a stat la originea unui puternic incendiu, care a distrus numeroase nave din Portul Rouen. Nu a minţit nici că a reuşit să păcălească organele de anchetă franceze, scăpând de acuzare şi de plata unor importante daune. Stau dovadă faptele consemnate în arhivele franceze, pe care reporterii noştri le-au descoperit la faţa locului, la 27 de ani de la producerea incendiului.

Traian Băsescu nu a minţit afirmând că, în 1981, petrolierul „Argeş” pe care îl comanda a stat la originea unui puternic incendiu care a distrus numeroase nave din Portul Rouen. Nu a minţit nici că a reuşit să păcălească organele de anchetă franceze, scăpând de acuzare şi de plata unor importante daune. Stau dovadă faptele consemnate în arhivele franceze.

Într-un exces de sinceritate, Traian Băsescu mărturisea în 1999, la televizor, o ispravă marinărească. Povestea cum a păcălit autorităţile franceze şi a scăpat basma curată după ce o defecţiune tehnică a navei sale a pus în pericol Portul francez Rouen, generând un incendiu care a afectat 38 de nave. La începutul acestui an, colegul nostru Andrei Bădin a făcut pe arheologul şi i-a reuşit. A „pescuit” din memoria videocasetelor poznaşa istorisire din vremea ministeriatului lui Băsescu la Transporturi şi a restituit-o actualităţii, publicând-o în Jurnalul Naţional în numărul din 30 ianuarie. Nouă ne-a rămas să verificăm dacă întâmplarea povestită de prezident are şi corespondent în realitate. Să mergem aşadar la faţa locului (pentru că în bazele de date disponibile online nu am găsit nici o referinţă) şi să găsim urmele faptelor descrise de Băsescu.

Paris – Normandie, 11 septembrie 1981. Este anunţat evenimentul;
ARHEOLOGIE ÎN BIBLIOTECÅ. Birocraţia franceză este faimoasă în Europa. Auzisem de ea, însă recunosc că m-a cam blocat când ne-am întâlnit nas în nas. Pe terenul ei. La Rouen în port. Îţi atârni legitimaţia de gât şi te înscrii la cuvânt, în faţa unor oameni binevoitori şi politicoşi. Le spui că vrei să găseşti în arhive cutare şi cutare lucru (întâmplat cam pe când dumnealor cochetau cu biberonul) şi eşti răsplătit cu un ooo aprobator şi invitat de îndată să-ţi faci o programare prin mail, peste o săptămână-două-trei. Dar tu n-ai timp şi vrei să arzi nişte etape ce nu pot fi arse defel. Atunci, interlocutorii cei binevoitori te trimit, cu bune recomandări, la o altă instituţie, unde, fără îndoială, lucrurile se mişcă mai rapid. Aşa se face că m-am făcut minge de ping-pong între Căpitănia Portului, Administraţia Portului Autonom, Prefectura Senei Maritime şi alte câteva instituţii pe care nu vă voi plictisi prezentându-vi-le. Nu de alta, dar nu v-ar fi de nici un folos, cum nu mi-au fost nici mie. Politeţea ce mi-a fost arătată de absolut toată lumea mă face să-mi înghit orice remarcă neprincipială despre diversele stări de agregare a birocraţiei pe malurile Senei. E suficient să vă spun că am ales în cele din urmă drumul care a ocolit aprobările de principiu şi programările în audienţă: consultarea arhivelor publice.

Faimoasa Bibliotecă Villon in Rouen ascunde manuscrise vechi de secole. Are şi o impresionantă arhivă de microfilme. Presa anilor 1981-1982, unde puteam găsi detalii despre întâmplarea care a înflăcărat la propriu fluviul, nu era disponibilă consultării. Mai tânăra Bibliotecă Saint Sever suferea de un neajuns similar. Biblioteca Primăriei din Rouen avea însă ziare din abundenţă. Am căutat mai întâi perioada amintită de Traian Băsescu în interviu: iarna 1981-1982. Dezamăgire. Prima zi de consultare a arhivei mi-a adus în memorie evenimentele fierbinţi ale acelor ani, pe care le mai citisem cândva în Lumea, Scînteia şi chiar le văzusem la telejurnal: lansarea primei navete spaţiale, atentatul asupra Papei Ioan Paul al II-lea, criza poloneză „Solidaritatea”, războiul Malvinelor, răpirea tatălui lui Julio Iglesias. Despre incendiul din Portul Rouen, nimic. În cea de-a doua zi, şoarecele de bibliotecă municipală care scrie aceste rânduri a fost cotropit de satisfacţie, găsind în cotidianul regional Paris-Normandie (publicaţie redutabilă şi în ziua de azi) confirmarea dezvăluirilor actualului prezident.

Ediţia din 11 septembrie 1981 titrează pe prima pagină: „Dramă evitată lângă Rouen”. Citesc că, în dimineaţa zilei precedente, pe la 8 jumătate, în aval de Rouen, în dreptul rafinăriei Shell, fluviul Sena a luat foc în mod inexplicabil şi terifiant. O uriaşă pată de combustibil uşor, „nafta”, s-a aprins instantaneu. A devorat câteva împingătoare şi barje, a alarmat pompierii din patru localităţi riverane. A produs o panică de nedescris în port. Trei oameni – pilotul unei nave, soţia sa şi copilul lor – au fost la un pas de-a muri arşi de vii. Ei au fost salvaţi miraculos de un macaragiu, care a manevrat macaraua aflată pe mal şi i-a cules pe cei trei de pe puntea vasului care ardea. Articolul semnat de ziaristul François Henriot semnala şi primele suspiciuni ale anchetatorilor referitoare la cauza incendiului. Poliţia suspecta nava română „Argeş”, petrolier al companiei Navrom, că a stat la originea deversării de combustibil uşor. A doua zi, Paris Normandie avea să revină cu o notiţă: Instalaţiile rafinăriei Shell s-au dovedit a nu fi stat la originea acestei scurgeri de produse petroliere aromatice. În schimb, o testare a circuitului de pompare de pe nava „Argeş” a întărit suspiciunile că petrolierul românesc ar fi suferit o defecţiune ce ar fi putut produce deversarea de combustibil în apele Senei.

Epava împingătorului Elbiod, mistuit de flăcări
MARTOR OCULAR. Asta e tot ce a scris presa franceză despre acest eveniment. Pentru că nu au existat victime omeneşti, presa şi opinia publică au lăsat autorităţile să ancheteze în tihnă incidentul. Jurnalistul care a relatat incendiul de pe Sena, François Henriot, este azi ofiţerul de presă al Portului Rouen. I-am telefonat. Era în vacanţă. Ne-a confirmat că incendiul de pe Sena, despre care scrisese în urmă cu 27 de ani, a rămas şi până azi un mister pentru el. „Venise la putere Mitterrand, mi-a spus Henriot, la putere se instalaseră socialiştii, iar comunicarea autorităţilor cu mass-media începuse să se înrăutăţească. A fost o perioadă de mai slabă transparenţă faţă de presă.” I-am cerut fostului ziarist să ne povestească în faţa camerei de filmat ce îşi aminteşte despre întâmplarea căreia îi fusese martor, însă ne-a spus că, în calitatea sa actuală, ar avea nevoie de multe aprobări pentru a acorda un interviu.

În aceste condiţii, nu putem decât să-i dăm crezare lui Traian Băsescu faţă de tot ce a urmat. Cu nişte mici amendamente: întâmplarea povestită de el nu era iarna, ci la începutul toamnei, n-au fost implicate în incendiu atât de multe vase cât a zis, ci mai puţine, şi trei oameni au fost la un pas să-şi piardă viaţa în acele împrejurări îngrozitoare. În rest, nu putem decât să fim de acord că organele de anchetă franceze, portuare şi judiciare, au fost păcălite aşa cum domnia sa a relatat. Că pagubele produse de distrugerea împingătoarelor Capitole şi Elbiod, a barjelor acestora, de avarierea cargoului Eleistria, a petrolierului Argeş şi a altor câteva nave nu au mai fost plătite de nimeni, pentru că vinovaţii nu au fost nici acuzaţi, nici condamnaţi.

Acest episod, care vorbeşte despre şmecheria dâmboviţeană a comandantului de vas Traian Băsescu, nu figurează în „mapa profesională” a acestuia, pentru simplul motiv că aceasta nu mai există. Statul român trebuie să îi fi fost recunoscător căpitanului, pentru că l-a scutit de plata despăgubirilor estimate atunci la 12 milioane de dolari. Cum avea să mărturisească domnia sa, organelor de Securitate le-a explicat ce s-a întâmplat. A explicat şi armatorului, Navrom. Nici Securitatea, nici Navrom nu s-au supărat de această probă de destoinicie a comandantului român, căruia avea să i se încredinţeze ulterior cârma unor nave încă mai importante decât „Argeş”. Mai ştim că, după acest incident, regulamentele privind acţiunea împotriva incendiilor în Portul Rouen au fost sever modificate. Iar companiile de asigurare a navelor distruse au înghiţit în sec şi au înregistrat la finele anului un deficit în buget.

Dramă evitată

Articolul de fond: cum au fost salvaţi ca prin minune cei trei oameni de pe Elbiod;
„O limbă de foc”. „Un torent de flăcări”. Mărturiile concordă: timp de câteva minute infernal de lungi, Sena a ars ieri-dimineaţă în aval de Rouen către Grand Couronne. Împinsă de maree şi curent, o pânză de hidrocarburi uşoare – benzină sau produşi aromatici – s-a aprins pe mai multe sute de metri, urcând cu viteza unui cal în galop spre marea rafinărie Shell… Câteva secunde, un adevărat zid de flăcări a străbătut fluviul: la Val de La Haye, pe malul drept, în faţa rafinăriei, un ponton de lemn a fost şi el prăjit de valul incandescent. Urmările acestui neaşteptat fulger nu au fost prea grave: mai multe barje şi două vapoare au fost atinse, doar două împingătoare au fost distruse în întregime. Ocupanţii unuia dintre acestea au scăpat de la moarte doar graţie prezenţei de spirit a unui macaragiu. Flăcările au mai lins coca unui petrolier, amarat lângă rezervoarele Shell.

Pe la ora 8:30, focul a luat naştere în preajma cargoului grec Eleistria, de 14.000 de tone, încărcat cu făină, şi lung de 150 de metri. O scânteie sau un muc de ţigară, şi iadul s-a coborât pe Sena. Atmosfera era încărcată de vapori de hidrocarburi în acea dimineaţă, zic martorii. Flama a luat-o pe râu în sus, spre rafinăria Shell. Un împingător al Uniunii normande, Elbiot, precum şi barjele autopropulsate Sare şi Adour, încărcate de fosfo-gyps, au fost încercuite de flăcări. Cu mai bine de 40 de kilometri pe oră, focul se propaga pe suprafaţa apei. Un al doilea împingător, Capitol, proprietatea armatorului Marcel Rolland, şi cele trei barje ale sale, Arthur, Didier şi Languedoc, au fost şi ele prinse în capcană.

Capitol se afla nu departe de o macara de pe mal. Macaragiul le-a salvat viaţa celor aflaţi pe vas în acel moment. „Eram prizonieri. Nu puteam face nimic”, povesteşte Georgette Meresse, de 28 ani, soţia lui Richard, pilotul Capitolului. „Richard a văzut flacăra, mi-a strigat să iau băieţelul şi să ies pe punte.” Richard, Georgette şi micul Jerome au fost văzuţi de macaragiu. Acesta a coborât cupa şi i-a cules pe oamenii aflaţi în primejdie, depunându-i apoi, în siguranţă, pe mal. „Era singura cale de a fi salvaţi”, recunoaşte Georgette. Altfel am fi ars de vii.”

O ADEVÅRATÅ BOMBÅ. „Cu o viteză de neimaginat, povesteşte un alt martor, limba de foc s-a îndreptat spre rafinărie. Flăcările au lins coca petrolierului «Argeş», aparţinând companiei române Navrom. Vasul, cu o capacitate de 36.150 de tone şi lungimea de 190 de metri, descărcase hidrocarburi aromatice. Rezervoarele sale erau, aşadar, pline de gaz. Iar Capitole, care ardea, a lovit coca acestei adevărate bombe plutitoare… La Shell s-a sunat alarma. Pompierii au sărit la tunurile de apă. De la Rouen, Gran-Couronne, Grand-Quevily, Canteleu, Moulineaux au sosit vehicule de pompieri. Vaporul-pompier al Portului autonom Rouen s-a îndreptat şi el spre zona incendiului. 70 de pompieri, conduşi de locotenent- colonelul Louvet, au luptat cu focul, folosind tunuri şi spumă. Aşa se face că pagubele au fost limitate. Spre ora 9, toate focarele au fost stăpânite. E drept, Capitole şi Elbiod au fost distruse complet, însă cargoul grec şi petrolierul român n-au avut decât puţin de suferit.”

NICI O ANOMALIE LA SHELL. „Ancheta deschisă de Poliţia din Rouen încă de la începutul acestui foarte grav accident va încerca să determine mai întâi originea teribilei pânze de combustibil. Să se fi rupt vreo ţeavă la Shell? Nu a fost făcută, se pare, nici o constatare în acest sens. Reprezentanţii rafinăriei au declarat ieri după-amiază că, imediat după declanşarea alarmei, toate echipamentele au fost verificate, însă nimic anormal nu a fost constatat. Anchetatorii încearcă acum să stabilească dacă nu cumva s-a efectuat vreo manevră greşită în timpul procesului de descărcare a petrolierului companiei Navrom.” (Paris – Normandie, 11 septembrie 1981)

Posibilă scurgere la petrolierul român

Paris – Normandie, 12 septembrie 1981. Suspiciunile planează asupra petrolierului românesc „Argeş”
„După ce au stabilit că nu există indicii de ruptură la conductele rafinăriei Shell, serviciile poliţieneşti însărcinate cu ancheta au orientat cercetările, aşa cum scriam încă de ieri, asupra petrolierului român de 36.000 tone «Argeş», care a livrat hidrocarburi uşoare la Shell. Ieri-dimineaţă au avut loc testări ale circuitului de pompare pe «Argeş». A fost observată o scurgere de lichid în Sena. Aceasta e posibil să fie originea peliculei explozive de joi dimineaţă. Ancheta nu este însă închisă. Orice ar fi fost, lumea din zonă o să-şi amintească mult timp de râurile de foc şi de miraculoasa salvare a familiei pilotului de pe Capitole de macaragiul Georges Deboute.”
Paris – Normandie, 12 septembrie 1981

Declaraţie Băsescu, Prima TV
„Când eram comandant pe «Argeş», la trei luni de când îmi obţinusem brevetul de comandant, am luat foc în Portul Rouen, nu numai eu, 38 de nave au fost în incendiul din Rouen, în Franţa. Nava suspectată că a generat poluarea, care a făcut ca tot bazinul Portului Rouen şi Sena să fie tot o flacără pe o întindere de 3 km, a fost nava mea, pentru că era nava cea mai mare din zonă şi descărcam nafta în dana rafinăriei «Sholfrancaise». Am stat acolo 28 de zile în anchetă. Legislaţia franceză funcţiona corect. Adică nu trebuia să dovedesc eu că nu s-a produs poluarea de la mine, ci autorităţile franceze trebuiau să dovedească că s-a produs poluarea de la mine. În cele 28 de zile m-am prezentat şi la tribunal, am fost şi în ancheta organelor de justiţie franceze şi, după 28 de zile, instanţa s-a pronunţat că nu poate fi probată vina navei «Argeş». Am plecat, dar au rămas un litigiu, o acuzaţie la adresa navei de circa 12 milioane de dolari, o cerere de daune… A fost un litigiu, am explicat organelor de Securitate ce s-a întâmplat cu noi acolo şi, acum pot să o spun public, nu mai e nici un secret, am schimbat ceva în instalaţie înainte să permitem accesul autorităţilor franceze la bord, ceea ce a făcut imposibilă demonstraţia, demonstrarea vinei noastre… Acasă nu puteam să nu-i spun care a fost realitatea măcar armatorului, armatorul nu puteam să mi-l mint, iar în echipaj erau destui care ştiu ce s-a întâmplat”.

„In other words, even though craven gun manufacturers tried to evade the ban, those copycat guns did not replace banned guns in equal numbers, at least when traced to crimes. I want to spend a couple of minutes and explain to you about a shipment that was recently found by Italian customs. Some 8,000 AK-47 assault rifles were on their way from the Romanian port of Constanta to New York City, according to press reports and BATF information, apparently bound for a gun store in Georgia by the name of Century International Arms. These guns had a value of more than $7 million — 8,000 AK-47s.
. Though this shipment may very well have been illegal in any case under a 1989 Executive Order, think of one gun store buying 8,000 AK-47s in anticipation of 5 days from today.
Think of where guns like these are going to go. Some are going to go to legitimate gun owners. Others are going to go to gang bangers. They are going to be sold out of the backseats of automobiles and on street corners to criminals. They have become the weapon of choice for those who go up against the police. Mr. President, that is 8,000 AK-47s in one shipment coming into the United States.”

Italy Seizes 8,000 Kalashnikovs Headed to U.S.

– ROMARM AS CUGIR-
ROME (Reuters) – Italian customs officers seized more than 8,000 Kalashnikov assault rifles and other weapons on a ship headed to the United States, officials said Tuesday. The arms, worth about $7.15 million, were discovered aboard a ship arriving from Romania that pulled into the southern Italian port of Gioia Tauro on its way to the United States, Italy’s customs said in a statement. According to the travel documents, the arms belong to a large U.S. company with headquarters in the state of Georgia.
“We know that the destination was North America, but we don’t effectively know if that’s where the arms were going,” a customs official told RAI state television.
The arms were found inside three containers during a routine customs check earlier this week. They were confiscated due to discrepancies in the customs forms, but the news was only made public Tuesday.
The customs office said the weapons had been described as “common guns” instead of assault rifles and longer-range combat arms in the travel documentation. ($1-.8390 Euro)
