Two other suspects in the cases of crossing Giurgiuleşti-Galaţi border with false medical certificates and employment contracts04.08.2020 304 Views
Several searches were carried out, today, by officers of the General Territorial Directorate South of the NAC and prosecutors in the case of crossing the Giurgiuleşti-Galaţi border. Two international passenger carriers are suspected that they allegedly demanded a bribe equal to 100 euros from a passenger to ensure their safe, unobstructed departure and return to the Republic of Moldova without obstacles, without being placed in the mandatory quarantine of 14 days.
According to the materials of the case, the suspects would have claimed that they had influence on border officers and that they could determine them allow the crossing of the border with a biometric passport and on their return not to indicate the mandatory epidemiological self-isolation. As well, the passenger carriers are complicity in falsifying of the negative COVID-19 tests and employment contracts for Italy. In present, both are collaborating with investigation and are being investigated at large. Also, today, the prosecutors are to bring to the attention of an employee of the Leuşeni-Albiţa station the order of suspicion of passive corruption, as there are reasonable suspicions of complicity in the scheme of fraudulent crossing of the state border.
We remind, that two weeks ago, two employees of the General Inspectorate of Border Police and two drivers on Moldova-Italy route drew the attention of the NAC and anticorruption prosecutors, after information about probable forgery of some medical certificates and some employment contracts for the passengers of the international routes were confirmed. According to preliminary data, during the health emergency state, the minibus drivers who went abroad allegedly agreed with the employees of the GIBP to facilitate the illegal crossing of the state border for the citizens of the Republic of Moldova, providing them with false medical certificates with negative result for Covid-19, as well as false employment contracts, in exchange for a bribe. If found guilty, the involved persons risk up to 10 years of imprisonment and some criminal fines.
The documentation of the entire scheme was supported by the officers from the Unit Inspection Directorate of the GIBP that together with the NAC, is continuing the investigation of this case to establish the circle of accomplices.
The prosecutors from the south office of the Anticorruption Prosecutor’s Office are conducting criminal prosecution.
