A young man from Comrat was detained by the officers of the General Territorial Directorate South of the NAC and anticorruption prosecutors in a case of influence peddling. He would have claimed from a woman 1200 euros for help in getting the driving license.
According to the whistleblower, the suspect alleged that he has influence on civil servants from the Office of Registration of Transport Means and Driver's Qualification in Comrat and that he can determine them to favor her at theoretical and practical exams. For his services, the suspect would have claimed 1200 euros.
Thus, the transmission of the money took place under the control of the GTD South of the NAC, and the suspect was detained for 72 hours and put in the Detention Center of the NAC. According to the legislation, he risks up to 6 years of imprisonment or a criminal fine. We remind, that every person is presumed to be innocent until the final and irrevocable decision of the court is pronounced.
The Office of Anticorruption Prosecutor, Office South, conducts criminal prosecution.
The National Anticorruption Center specifies that among its priorities is combating and preventing corruption within the Agency of Public Services. There have been numerous complaints about collecting different amounts of money by the APS employees or intermediaries to issue documents, in most of the cases, by the fraud of the driving license exams.
