The children or spouses of a number of doctoral supervisors who work for the SRI Academy, the Police Academy and the National Defense University have become doctors in the fields of Public Order and National Security, Intelligence and National Security or Military Sciences.
The "Mihai Viteazul" National Intelligence Academy (ANIMV) brought forth claims against ten other individuals who obtained their PhDs and received the title of Doctor to the National Council for the Certification of University Titles, Diplomas and Certificates (CNATDCU). These individuals are under suspicion of having plagiarized their dissertations that were submitted to the university, which is under the SRI Academy's umbrella.
Only one PhD dissertation has ever disappeared from what is called the "untouchable collection" or reference only shelf of the National Library of Romania. Two names are listed on the cover: Florian Coldea, the SRI's former number two, and Gabriel Oprea, the former second most important individual of the Romanian Government.
On Tuesday, July 10, after reading the doctoral thesis of the former Minister for four hours, it became very clear to me: entire pages of the paper do not comply with the rules of academic citation, which involve the proper use of quotation marks, in addition to paraphrasing and making appropriate references to the official sources.
