AKYLE SECURITY, a company that provides security and protection services, received from the DISTRIBUTION SOCIETY OF ELECTRICITY (SDEE) TRANSILVANIA NORD SA a contract worth over 1 million lei for the provision of security and protection services of various objectives. Even though, at the last balance sheet, the company stated that it has no employees, their offer came bundled with a subcontracting agreement for services to PP Protect, the company of Teodor Pop Pușcaș, the former head of the Cluj police. Akyle Security is connected to the „black” police business: suspicious drug operations and the famous Shanghai prostitution case, which targets several heads of the Capital’s police. The shareholders of the security company also include a deputy mayor of the Capital.
In 2019, ELECTRICITY DISTRIBUTION SOCIETY (SDEE) TRANSILVANIA NORD SA awarded the tender “Guest services with authorized agents for 8 objectives belonging to the Electricity Distribution Company Transilvania Nord SA – Branch Cluj-Napoca ”of AKYLE SECURITY. The value of the contract is 1,008,451.2 lei, excluding VAT.
The company that won the auction is managed by the former deputy mayor of the Capital City Hall, IONESCU ROBERT CONSTANTIN, which is also a shareholder. Along with him, POPA MARIAN COSTEL (majority shareholder) also owned shares, which transferred its stake to Cristescu Alexandru Vlad Mihai, MARCU CONSTANTIN, who transferred his shares to Marcu Firuta Marieta, and PITCOVICI CONSTANTIN, who transferred his package of shares to Pitcovici Maria.
The respective contract was contested by the other companies that participated in the auction, and ultimately, even those from Electrica came to open a process on which, on top (!) they also won it.
What is interesting is that Akyle ended up winning the auction in the event that they submitted an agreement signed with the Cluj company PP Protect, which belongs to Teodor Pop Pușcaș, the former head of the Cluj police.
“The amount of benefits is not mentioned in the content of the agreement concluded between Akyle Security as a general contractor and PP Protect Security as a subcontractor, according to art 3 of the agreement, the parties established that
And in this situation, the contracting authority, ie those from Electrica, did not request any further clarification. Perhaps for this reason, the offer of those from Akyle, who initially won the contract, was the largest, of 14.39 lei / hour.
The bizarie on the edge of this auction continues. A month ago, the contracting authority opened a lawsuit against Akyle, and the court ordered the re-evaluation of one of the tenders that participated in the tender.

As a result, Piccovici told him he would come to DNA headquarters. When they met, Piccovici asked Motoc for information about the file in which Popoviciu is being investigated, insisting that the DNA officer tell him which prosecutor is handling the businessman’s case. Immediately after the meeting with the DGA officer, Motoc made the denunciation, it is shown in the DNA report.
