Mircea Nitescu's personnel file contains grades from university studies belonging to Corneliu C. Nitescu. The grades are also included in his application for the position of culture and leisure director in Varberg. His full name was 1984 Corneliu Mircea Nitescu.
7-härad.nu has previously reported on the difficulties of being able to take part in Mircea Nitescu's merit documents. During a visit to the municipal office in Svenljunga in August 2002, the author of the article managed, after great difficulty, to obtain copies of certain documents that were in Mircea Nitescu's personnel file. There was no resume among the documents. On the other hand, there was a certificate belonging to Mircea Nitescu about completed training in restaurant and catering at AMU. The only credentials that existed before Mircea Nitescu's education at AMU were grade copies belonging to Corneliu C. Nitescu from two music educations in Romania.
In Mircea Nitescu's application for the position of culture and leisure director in Varberg, the grade copies belonging to Corneliu C. Nitescu from the two music educations in Romania (Read!) Are repeated. The application documents also contain copies of a Romanian passport from 1984. The full name of the passport is Corneliu Mircea Nitescu (Read!). Why does the name in the Romanian passport not match the name in the cited documents from Romania?
Mircea Nitescu has previously stated in conversations with the author of the article that the C in Corneliu C. Nitescu is an abbreviation of Corneliu and that his name was Corneliu Corneliu Nitescu in Romania. However, he chose not to be called Corneliu Corneliu Nitescu when he came to Sweden because he was free to choose a name in Sweden (Listen!).
It is HR manager Birgitta Widåker and municipal director Anders Ottensten who have taken care of the recruitment of Mircea Nitescu as the new head of the culture and leisure administration in Varberg. HR Manager Birgitta Widåker has stated that the reason why there are copies of an 18-year-old Romanian passport among Mircea Nitescu's application documents is that he is a refugee and that there are different names in the documents (Listen!).
Birgitta Widåker stated that the Romanian passport was included in the application documents to prove the first name Mircea because this name is not included in the merit documents from Romania. According to Birgitta Widåker, the passport would prove that Mircea Nitescu is called Mircea, as it does not say Mircea on the Romanian credentials. The author of the article pointed out that the passport can hardly prove that the Romanian grades, belonging to Corneliu C. Nitescu, really belong to Mircea Nitescu. Birgitta Widåker replied that the Romanian grades prove that he has a different name in Sweden than he had in Romania. The author of the article drew the attention of the chief of staff to the fact that the name in the Romanian grades is Corneliu C. Nitescu and that the name in the Romanian passport is Corneliu Mircea Nitescu and that the passport can thus hardly prove that the Romanian grades really belong to Mircea Nitescu. Birgitta Widåker then claimed that the date of birth was correct. However, she was informed that many people had probably been born in Romania during the same day. The human resources manager stated that they have asked themselves why Mircea does not appear on the Romanian grading documents (Listen!).
Municipal director Anders Ottensten has confirmed that the Romanian passport from 1984 was included in the application documents to prove the identity of the grades and diplomas from Romania that Mircea Nitescu has invoked in her application. The municipal director stated that he is aware that the names in the passport do not match the names in the Romanian grading documents. When asked how the passport can then prove the identity in the grades, Anders Ottensten answered that the identity is proven as far as possible. However, he did not want to tell in any way how this has happened (Listen!).
Mircea Nitescu's conduct in disclosing documents from his staff file
7-härad.nu has previously reported on Mircea Nitescu's behavior when the author of the article tried to take part in Mircea Nitescu's personnel file at Svenljunga municipality. Mircea Nitescu's behavior was perceived as strange and inappropriate for an official.
During the visit to the municipal office on 19 August 2002, the author of the article was only allowed to read four staff files for a rigid hour before the lunch closing. Including Mircea Nitescu's personnel file. Chancellor Mircea Nitescu stated during the visit that it was not possible to continue to take part in the documents after the lunch closing. The same documents that had been handed out before lunch (Listen!).
Mircea Nitescu stated that the author of the article had to make an appointment in order to continue to take part in the disclosed documents. When we wanted to book an appointment in the afternoon, Mircea Nitescu stated that this did not work because the archivist had to monitor when taking part in documents at the municipality (Listen!).
The time to take part in the documents in the four personnel files was thus limited. It was not possible to find any curricula in Chancellor Mircea Nitescu's personnel file. In his application for the position of municipal secretary, however, it was stated that his curricula were at the municipality's personnel department. In Mircea Nitescu's personnel file, there was a certificate from AMU for an introductory course, as well as from completed training in restaurant and catering at AMU. The only credentials that existed from the time before that were transcripts of Corneliu C. Nitescu from two different music educations in Romania.
The author of the article found it important to include copies of certain selected documents in the personnel files. The selected documents were marked with paper clips (Listen!). Chancellor Mircea Nitescu agreed to have the copies ready for collection at 13.15 the same day (Listen!).
When the author of the article returned at the agreed time, the copying was not completely completed. When the copying was finished, the copies were not handed over, but Mircea Nitescu picked up a person who later turned out to be Risto Kokko. In Risto Kokko's presence, Mircea demanded that Nitescu receive a promise that the copied material would not be used in an "improper or criminal manner" (Listen!). He also stated that he understood that he had no legal support to investigate why one wants to take part in public documents (Listen!).
The author of the article did not accept Chancellor Mircea Nitescu's invention. As a result, Mircea Nitescu refused to hand over the copies of the documents which the author of the article had hastily received for lunch and which, according to the agreement, would be ready for collection at 13.15 (Listen!). Risto Kokko implied that the Chancellor's decision not to release the copies could be tried by appeal (Listen!).
The Freedom of the Press Ordinance and the Secrecy Act regulate the disclosure of public documents. Officials do not have the right to investigate why they wish to take part in certain documents. The documents that you have the right to access can be accessed free of charge at the place where the documents are stored. You also have the right to receive copies of the documents that you have the right to see for a fixed fee.
Chancellor Mircea Nitescu also accused the author of harassing municipal staff. As this is a serious accusation, he was asked to explain in what way the author of the article is harassing the staff and who it is that feels that they are being harassed. The Chancellor stated that the harassment allegation stems from the way the author of the article uses to obtain public documents. As an example, he stated that the article author had a tape recorder in his hand and that the article author had only requested access to documents concerning the staff who, according to the Chancellor, had opposed the article author (Listen!).
In March 2002, the municipality of Svenljunga submitted a lawsuit to Borås District Court in which the municipality tries to claim that the author of the article has ordered copies of documents that the municipality sent in October 2001 and for which the municipality demands payment. Against this background, it is strange that Svenljunga municipality did not try to keep the agreement on the collection of the copies that the article author and head of the office, Mircea Nitescu, had agreed on.
Chancellor Mircea Nitescu did not release the copies. First, he brought them in to the chairman of the municipal board, Thomas Mellqvist (C). Then he took the copies to the mayor, Göran Nilsson. Since there was an agreement and the article author was at the municipal office to pick up the copies, the article author waited outside these service rooms. Mircea Nitescu had only been inside the mayor's office for a short while when Mircea Nitescu opened and slammed the door and accused the author of the article of having inserted a microphone under the door (Listen!). The only thing the author of the article did was hold the tape recorder in his hand at normal body height.
The author of the article explained to the mayor, Göran Nilsson, that it should be easier for them if they handed over the copies which, according to the agreement, would be ready for collection at 13.15 (Listen!). Chancellor Mircea Nitescu later handed over the copies with the words "oh stick!" (Listen!).
Who is Corneliu C. Nitescu?
Mircea Nitescu's behavior during the visit to the municipal office in Svenljunga on 19 August 2002 gave the impression that something was wrong with the merit documents in his personnel file. This impression has been reinforced by Svenljunga municipality's unwillingness to allow the author of the article to take part in Mircea Nitescu's curricula. Despite the fact that the Court of Appeal overturned the municipal board's working committee's rejection decision in February 2003, the municipality has not yet complied with the ruling and handed out Mircea Nitescu's curricula!
The fact that the names do not match the Romanian passport and the Romanian credentials further reinforces the impression that there is something wrong with Mircea Nitescu's credentials. Mircea Nitescu's statement that his name was Corneliu Corneliu Nitescu in Romania (Listen!) Also does not correspond with the 18-year-old Romanian passport that he has submitted with the application documents for the position of culture and leisure director in Varberg. In the passport, his name is Corneliu Mircea Nitescu (Read!).
The explanations given by the Chief of Personnel and the Municipal Director in Varberg have not helped to reduce the feeling that something is wrong with Mircea Nitescu's merit documents.
