Romania: The spy who loved … Eurovision!
BUCHAREST, ROMANIA – The lead singer of the group Casa Presei, which came fourth at the Romanian national selection for the 2013 Eurovision Song Contest has revealed he is a spy. Robert Turcescu now faces imprisonment for revealing a state secret.
Robert made the confession on his bog, saying “Yes, I have been an undercover lieutenant colonel. I have chosen not to betray God and to come out publicly with this information. I refused to be a Judas in front of Christ, even though today those who will read and see this text might not understand exactly what is going on.
Pray for me and with me so that we be forgiven and saved. I am prepared to face public contempt, which I deserve, but I hope we’ll have fair laws and judges. God willing, everything will be fine. I beg everyone to forgive me”.
Robert, who provided a scan of his documents which show he has indeed been a spy since 2010, now faces between two to seven years in prison for revealing his true identify. The artists/spy has said he is withdrawing from public life until judges make a ruling on his case.
