'I'm not interested'
FORMER Romanian diplomat Silviu Ionescu was defiant and dismissive of the Coroner's Court findings when told about them on Wednesday.
The 49-year-old former charge d'affaires at the Romanian embassy repeatedly said he was not surprised by the verdict, when contacted in Romania by phone.
At one point, he exclaimed: 'This is bulls***.'
Dr Ionescu scoffed at the evidence given by some of the 54 witnesses who had appeared in the Coroner's Court during the six-day hearing last month.
He accused them of lying, and said the 'scenarios' they painted in court were implausible, at best.
In particular, he referred to the account of bartender Mohamed Noor Hussain, who identified him as the driver involved in the hit-and-run accident.
