The romanian authorities claim that «Tsutsu didn’t give a permission for few workers to leave the plant and to establish a clandestine manufacture of cigarettes in one of the villages in Romania because earlier they worked for Vladimir Mardar. There appeared contradictions between him and «Patron» and Mardar left the group and joint a georgian «thief in law» Glonti Sergei (Guga)».
All the leaders were involved later in the conflict: Gushan Ion (Nicku Patron), Gori Valery (Valeri), Gennady Vekiu (Clifford) and Oleg Pruteanu (Borman). However, they were unable to solve the conflict and called intermediaries– «thieves in law» from Odessa (Ciro Shonija, Gevorg Uhlava and Guga). The meeting took place on July 13, 2013.
