Romania: Spies In Cigarette Scam Sacked
Scotland On Sunday, 24 May 1998 - Romania's Special Security Services, once one of Europe's most loathed and feared intelligence agencies, is to undergo serious downsizing after being implicated in a multi-million pound cigarette smuggling scandal. Anghel Andreescu, appointed SPP director last month at the height of the scandal, said 369 people would lose their jobs in the initial phase of a restructuring - a 24% cut. The SPP came under scrutiny after one of its top officers was arrested over the shipment to Bucharest airport last month of 30 million illicit cigarettes. - --- Checked-by: Richard Lake
