Gabriel Oprea, former minister of the interior in the Ponta government, said in the program “40 questions with Denise Rifai”, broadcast on Sunday on Kanal D, that he uses a special shampoo “for gray hair” to dye himself. He says that he uses the services of a beautician who “when my wife finishes the treatment, I follow and do the treatment myself, including taking care of my eyebrows.”
Gabriel Oprea was asked: “There are voices that claim that in order to look younger, you use to brush and dye your eyebrows as well. I want to know how much money you leave at the salon every month? Next comes the question: Do I bring tears to your eyes?”.
“First, I use a shampoo to dye myself. Do you know what bleaching hair means? It is a hair disease, but there are two conditions to be able to apply this shampoo. The first thing is to have hair on your head, and the second is to have 10-15% pigment left. And I have! Twice a month I use this shampoo for gray hair that has this color.
Two. My wife has a 20-something beautician, very serious, who comes to our house. When my wife finishes the treatment, I follow and do the treatment myself, including taking care of my eyebrows. No, I don’t shed tears when I brush my eyebrows. I think it’s a good, normal thing to take care of yourself,” said Gabriel Oprea.
Former Interior Minister Gabriel Oprea was definitively acquitted in the case of the death of the police officer Bogdan Gigină, in which he was tried for manslaughter.
Gabriel Oprea was sued by DNA in May 2018 at the High Court of Cassation and Justice. Bogdan Gigină, who was part of a device accompanying the former minister, died in October 2015, after falling on his motorcycle into a pit on Știrbei Vodă Street in Bucharest. The DNA prosecutors said in 2018 that the blame for this accident lies with former Deputy Prime Minister Gabriel Oprea and the administrator of the company that dug the pit and did not signal it properly.
The investigators showed that the policeman was driving at a speed of 84 km/h, in low visibility conditions caused by darkness and rain. The dynamics of the accident and the lack of braking maneuvers lead to the conclusion that the police officer did not see the obstacles on the roadway (temporary road constructions) before coming into contact with the first of them.
The prosecutors also said that Gabriel Oprea is the one who imposed, using the ascendancy conferred by his position and in violation of the legal provisions that regulate the accompaniment of dignitaries, that the journey be made at a very high speed, a cause that contributed to the road accident which led to the death of Bogdan Gigină.
He was also definitively acquitted in the case in which the former deputy prime minister and interior minister was sent to court by the DNA for abuse of office. Gabriel Oprea was charged in connection with the purchase from the operational funds of the Directorate of Information and Internal Protection (DIPI), in a conspiratorial way, of a luxury car Audi A8, used exclusively by the former dignitary.
In July 2018, the Bucharest Court of Appeal rejected, as unfounded, the action filed by Oprea in which he requested the annulment of the order of the Minister of Education by which his doctorate in law title was withdrawn.
