The Romanian press has published photos of Ron Weiner and David Geclowicz, who were arrested in Romania last week on suspicion of being Israeli spies. The two are employed by Israeli business intelligence firm Black Cube, and were arrested under suspicion of spying on Laura Kovesi, chief prosecutor of Romania’s National Anticorruption Directorate.
According to the Romanian press, the alleged espionage ring also includes Yossi Berkstein, 27, and David Geclowicz’s brother Samy Geclowicz, 26. According to reports, the Geclowicz brothers were born in Antwerp to Israeli parents and hold dual citizenships – Belgian and Israeli.
According to reports, Weiner and David Geclowicz are suspected of leading an organized espionage network which performed a laundry list of internet crimes, including hacking into people’s email and attempted theft of information. Romanian prosecutors claim that the two, along with their associates, intercepted email that was meant for Kovesi’s associates and harassed her. Kovesi herself admitted only that there have been “unsuccessful attempts” to threaten her, but did not elaborate.
