Romanian spy chief questioned over election fraud

Associated Press

The chief of one of Romania's secret services has been questioned by a parliamentary committee over allegations that his agency was involved in the alleged election fraud.

The opposition Social Democrats allege that Marcel Opris provided a software to the Liberal Democrats _ who support President Traian Basescu _ that enabled them access to voting figures data.

Opris denied the allegations Thursday and called them "a grave attack on the agency," that is controlled by the Supreme Defense Council and which monitors all telecommunication networks for the president, government, parliament and top justice officials.

Basescu narrowly defeated the opposition leader Mircea Geoana in Sunday's presidential runoff.
