The mayor of Truşeni village, the chief architect, the former head of the municipal enterprise of the mayor's office and an economic agent are being investigated by the NAC and the anti-corruption prosecutors in several corruption cases. They came into the spotlight, after a case of bribery was documented by the mayor's office officials for the issuance of permissive documents for the legalization of a building.
In fact, investigations by the NAC officers and prosecutors have identified multiple cases of claiming financial means from economic agents and individuals in exchange for issuing town planning certificates for construction and other documents for the legalization of real estate or land. The amounts claimed by the group of officials varied between 500 and 1000 euros, but there were also documented cases in which material goods (land) were also claimed in exchange for the issuance of permissive documents.
At the same time, during the investigations and criminal prosecution actions, the attempt to abusively take over some properties, which belonged to a 73-year-old resident of Truşeni village, was also documented. Thus, video images were obtained from the office of the mayor of Truşeni, where discussions took place between the mayor and his accomplices regarding the plan of dispossession of wealth of a single woman. According to the roles shared between the accomplices, they were to obtain the pensioner's trust, by offering some attention, in order to be able to take possession of the original deeds of ownership over the house in Truşeni, some lands, but also an apartment in the capital. Also, from the discussions, the money he would have obtained after the sale of the mentioned properties was to be divided among the members of the group.
