TV mogul Sorin Ovidiu Vantu: murder is a business solution

Controversial businessman and Realitatea TV owner Sorin Ovidiu Vantu was detained for 24 hours by prosecutors over death threat allegations against his TV station manager Sebastian Ghita

May 2011 - From the Print Edition

Ghita claimed media mogul Vantu threatened to kill him and bury him in a grave in Moldavia because the manager would not allow him to intervene in the running of the TV station.
According to a transcript of a conversation between the two men, Vantu suggested that “murder is a solution” whenever he is playing for high stakes in business.
Ghita made the recording public on the day Vantu was detained.
Ghita is the majority shareholder of IT solutions company Asesoft, which took over the management of news television Realitatea TV on October 2010.
Realitatea Media signed a five-year 75 million Euro management contract with the media division of Asesoft, with the Romanian IT company taking a healthy profit share of 80 per cent.
In February 2011 the first quarrels between Ghita and Vantu began when Ghita fired two chairpersons from Realitatea TV, who were seen as strong allies of Vantu.
Tensions between the two grew in March when Vantu attempted to make Ghita surrender his management contract with Realitatea TV.
But later Vantu allegedly requested 150,000 Euro from Ghita not to cancel his management contract with the press trust.
