Romanian Prime Minister Victor Ponta named in a criminal investigation

Romanian Prime Minister Victor Ponta has been named as a defendant in a criminal investigation into forgery, tax evasion and money laundering. Assets belonging to him have been temporarily seized.

The criminal investigation, which began last month refers back to when Ponta was a lawyer before he became prime minister. He has repeatedly denied any wrongdoing.
