Romania: Former Mossad agents arrested on suspicions of espionage

Wednesday, 06 April 2016

Four Israeli citizens are being investigated on alleged charges of espionage, Romanian sources reported this morning. Romania Insider reported that the four are being investigated on charges of spying on the Chief Prosecutor of Romania’s National Anticorruption Directorate (DNA), Laura Kovesi Codruta.

Two of the suspects are former Mossad agents Avi Yanus and Dan Zorella, who are co-founders of intelligence firm Black Cube.

Israeli reports noted that former Mossad Chief Meir Dagan has cooperated with Black Cube and was an honorary president of the firm until his death last month.

According to sources in the Romanian prosecution, Zorella and Yanus, along with other Black Cube employees, including Ron Weiner and David Geclowicz, organised a group that committed cyber attacks against the head of Romania’s National Anticorruption Directorate.

It has also become evident that these two former agents, who are still under arrest, also hacked into the emails of three of Codruta’s close aides.
