Shhaideh did not disclose any information about the investigation, but she was called at Romania’s Anticorruption Directorate DNA on Friday so she could find out about the accusation.

“I am a suspect and I can’t tell you more as there is an ongoing investigation. I was informed about my status. I am using might rights and will analyze the papers with by lawyers,” the minister told journalists. She did not say if she will resign due the investigation of anti-graft prosecutors.

She has been in the government since the start of the year and was nominated as PM at the star of the year by the ruling coalition PSD-ALDE. However, president Klaus Iohannis refused to designate her PM.
