A man from Italy, with a residence permit in Chisinau, was detained recently by the NAC officers and anticorruption prosecutors. The man has been denounced by a woman, who were in close relations, after which he allegedly asked 7 000 euros to influence several judges within the Buicani Court in Chisinau.
According to the whistleblower, the man would have promised her to escape the criminal case, filed in Buiucani Court, and in order to influence judges he allegedly needed 7000 euros. The woman is claiming that she transmitted the man 1800 euros, in several tranches, but the case was not solved.
Today, the NAC officers have carried out searches at the domicile of the suspect, finding in his apartment a copy of the case in which the whistleblower was targeted. When he was asked what judges he intended to address, the man admitted that demanding the money was a method of revenge against his former partner and is not connected to solving the case.
Currently, he is at the NAC, detained for 72 hours. He is investigated for influence peddling and faces up to 6 years in prison.
We remind that every person is presumed to be innocent until the final and irrevocable decision of the court is pronounced.
The Anticorruption Prosecution is conducting the criminal investigation.
