Two patrol inspectors have drawn the attention of the NAC and the anticorruption prosecutors, after claiming a bribe from two drivers for not calling them to account and not suspending their driving license. In one case, one of the police officers would have claimed 10 000 lei, while in the other case, another police officer from the National Patrol Inspectorate would have asked 500 euro. In both situations, the drivers were stopped to be checked on the Chisinau-Hancesti route.
According to the materials of the case, the police officers have detected violations in driving the vehicles, including drunk driving and driving without a license. In order not to document the situation, in accordance to the legal provisions, they claimed bribes.
Within the criminal investigation, searches were carried out at the homes, means of transport of the suspects, including in the service cars. Subsequently, both were escorted to the NAC for hearings and recognition as suspects. If they are found guilty, they risk up to 10 years of imprisonment for passive corruption.
At present, the police officers are investigated at large, with their obligation to be present at the criminal prosecution body in case of necessity.
The criminal prosecution is exercised by the Office of Anticorruption Prosecutor. We remind, that every person is presumed to be innocent until the final and irrevocable decision of the court is pronounced.
