23.01.1990 Declaratie:  Colonel Ion Baciu, șef al Direcției Economice din IGM,

Pe 20.12.89 la orele 1010 la crematoriu a venit Lt. Col. Voinea Dan procuror (?) din D.P.M., pe care-l cunosc intrucit inainte de activare (?), a lucrat la Departmentul Securitatii Statului, directia cercetari penale.

Era imbracat civil, insotit de un procuror militar in uniforma.  Au discutat cu o femeie, Geta, nu-i stiu numele care i-a spus:  “? ca ati venit.  Toata noaptea au ars aici si ? le este teama.”  Nu am auzit alte vorbe.  Au discutat cu aceia femeie cam (?) 15 minute dupa ce au plecat.

Cred ca au fost trimisi acolo fie de Popovici, fie de Diaconescu, pentru a vedea cum decurge incinerarea.

Solicit sa fie audiati Popovici Nicolae, fost procuror general, Diaconescu Gh, adjunctul acestuia si cei doi procurori militari…

from Ion Baciu’s hearing 12 March 1990 http://www.banaterra.eu/romana/files/procesul_de_la_timisoara_volumul_II.pdf

Baciu’s courtroom testimony (no reference made to his 23 January 1990 handwritten testimony above) was discussed by Vasile Surcel in the following article:

http://www.curentul.ro/2012/index.php/2012122081426/Actualitate/Ion-Baciu-in-procesul-Timisoara-procurorul-Dan-Voinea-a-verificat-personal-pe-20-decembrie-1989-incinerarea-mortilor-la-Crematoriul-Cenusa.html

Iosif Emilian’s lawyer (in September 1991) indeed suggested the involvement of the Prosecutor General in giving the cremations legal cover/legitimacy, hence explaining the presence of Dan Voinea and his colleague at Crematoriul Cenusa on 20 December 1989 (he also references Geta on p. 725).  This is from the seventh volume of “Procesul de la Timisoara” available on the banaterra site.

and, significantly, the former Prosecutor General Nicolae Popovici, who denies that he knew anything about the deaths of protesters in Timisoara or their incineration–until after 22 December 1989–naturally also denies that he sent any military or civilian prosecutor to the Cenusa Crematorium on 20 December 1989…because to do so would be to admit that he actually knew about what happened in Timisoara and the incineration of the corpses…
