Business Review reports that RCS&RDS claims that Intact Media Group ha started a smear campaign against some of its managers and shareholders. Meanwhile, Intact Media Group has accused RCS&RDS of broadcasting speculation.
It adds that the two companies are already fighting each other in court. Sorin Alexandrescu, the former CEO of Antena Group, was sentenced to three and a half years in jail for allegedly blackmailing Ioan Bendei, the former RCS&RDS administrator. However, the sentence has been challenged.
As recently reported by Broadband TV News, Bendei has also, along with several colleagues, been accused of corruption related to the securing of TV rights for the premier Romanian football league.
Zoltan Teszari, the founder and main owner of RCS&RDS, has accused Intact Media Group’s Antena 3 channel of broadcasting a fake recording of conversation he had with Bendei.
Meanwhile, Intact Media Group insists that its statements are based on documents and official recordings.
