Chaos at Realitatea Media: conflict between manager and owner deepens

Newsroom 12/10/2011 | 15:26

The conflict between Sebastian Ghita, owner of Asesoft International which is the company that used to manage the Realitatea Media press group and Elan Schwartzenberg, owner of the group has deepened.

 After Rovigo, the legal administrator appointed by the Bucharest Court in charge of the currently insolvent Realitatea Media, has denounced the management contract between the media entity and Asesoft International, controlled by Ghita, employees are migrating to the new entity founded by Ghita, RTV Satellite.

At the middle of September, the Realitatea employees were announced they will have to sign a contract with a new company (owned by Sebastian Ghita) in order to get their payment for the month of August, according to paginademedia.ro.

 This was a result of the fact that Realitatea Media’s accounts were blocked, since the company had not paid its taxes to the state.

 The majority of the employees had so far contracts on both companies.

 However, approximately 90 employees have so far resigned from Realitatea Media, owned by Schwartzenberg, in order to stay legally on RTV Satellite, owned by Ghita.

 According to Ghita, ‘all the celebrities of the Realitatea channel now have contract with RTV Satellite,” he said for paginademedia.

 In an internal letter sent to employees, Schwartzenberg says this is an attempt to take over the media group.

“The most serious thing is the desperate and fraud-like attempt of Sebastian Ghita to use the employees, logo, license, studios and equipment of Realitatea in order to give birth to his own television channel with no right,” he said.
