I'm reasonably sure it is (or was).  Two main reasons:

(1) It should have been routing to Romania (AS2614 or AS3233)- it was
    actually routing to or via Denmark (announced by AS16186).
(2) when the situation was pointed out, the route was quickly killed.

Same with 152.143.0.0: belongs to German company Kloeckner Stahl Bremen
but (parts of) it were being announced by Ayayai in Panama.

Teleglobe have stopped that routing - hence a large number of blocks
were suddenly de-announced and 152.143.0.0/16 now seems to be clean.
