According to anti-corruption prosecutors, the accused Iacob Adrian and Marcoci Petrică-Mihail, rector and deputy rector of the Alexandru Ioan Cuza Police Academy, in late March-early April 2019, led the accused Bărbulescu Gheorghe Adrian to send people investigating a journalist – a victim, threats (a text message and five messages with the Facebook Messenger application) to force her to stop journalistic investigations aimed at the Rector of the Police Academy to eliminate the risks to their professional careers,

"More specifically, at the end of March and the beginning of April 2019, Jacob Adrian and Marko Petricha-Mihail asked Burbulescu Gheorghe Adrian, taking advantage of the ascending post related to their functional subordination, age and professional difference, the personal relationship between them and the gratitude of the latter for the possibility of continuing to work in the university environment, sending threatening messages to the injured person to stop journalistic investigations against Jacob Edrian.The requests were made in several discussions in which o Barbulesku Gheorghe Adrian wore both separately and together both at the headquarters of the Police Academy, said the anti-corruption prosecutors.
