An employee of the SRL "Autospace" was detained yesterday, by the NAC officers and anticorruption prosecutors, being suspected of passive corruption. His accomplice, an employee of the Agency of Public Services, managed to escape from the scene and currently the pursuing measures are taken.
In fact, men are suspected of claiming from a citizen 200 euros to speed up the registration of a car. The latter complained to the NAC, and the criminal prosecution body initiated an investigation in this case for passive corruption.
Yesterday evening, the whistleblower passed the money to one of the suspects, under the NAC control, the other suspect managed to escape the pursuit in an unknown direction, leaving his car in a locality outside the capital.
Thus, the „Autospace" employee was detained and with regard of his accomplice the pursuit was undertaken. If they are found guilty, both risk up to 10 years of imprisonment with a fine from 6 000 to 8 000 conventional units and deprivation of the right to hold certain public functions or to perform a certain activity for a term from 7 to 10 years.
To be mentioned that every person is presumed to be innocent until the final and irrevocable decision of the court is pronounced.
The Office of Anticorruption Prosecutor conducts the criminal prosecution.
The National Anticorruption Center specifies that its priorities include combating and preventing corruption within the Agency of Public Services. This results from the numerous complaints regarding the collection of different amounts of money by the APS employees for issuing documents, in most of the cases for the fraud of the driving license exams.
