Romania is a nation state in Eastern Europe.
Willem Matser spoke at an intelligence services conference in 2003, in Sinaia, Romania, to which he personally contributed around £50,000. There he met up with Romanian tycoon Ovidiu Tender, director of Tender SA, one of the country's largest diversified concerns. Matser was involved in an attempt to gain control of PETROM National Society (SNP), a Romanian oil-company, which produces 10% of the Romanian GDP. Together with Tender SA and Halliburton, Matser sought a controlling 51% share (at a cost of approximately US$ 1 billion). A few days after the announcement of this trio’s interest, Matser was arrested and charged with having worked out an illegal financial arrangement designed to bring $200 million to Romania from Colombia. Romania's Economy Ministry subsequently announced that the Matser/Tender/Halliburton consortium was no longer being considered for the privatisation of PETROM.
