The chief architect of the Hîncești district was detained, this morning, by the NAC officers in cases of passive and active corruption and abuse of office, which are being handled by the Prosecutor's Office for Combating Organized Crime and Special Cases (PCCOCS). The official is suspected of receiving illicit financial means for the completion of the permissive acts of final reception of some buildings within the district.
According to the NAC investigations, starting with 2022, the chief architect of the Hîncești district, together with public persons from the local public administration, allegedly created a criminal scheme for claiming and systematically receiving money from administrators of legal entities, from beneficiaries of real estate and from intermediaries, to issue the final acceptance documents for the constructions already built.
From the information obtained as part of the special investigative measures, it was found that only the advance charged for the preparation of the documents was 3,000 lei, and during the documentation period documents were issued for at least 12 buildings, mainly houses on the ground.
This morning, the NAC and PCCOCS prosecutors carried out 16 searches that targeted the homes and cars of 14 suspects, as well as the offices of some institutions within the local public administration. The chief architect was detained for 72 hours, and the 14 people are to be heard at the NAC headquarters.
The person accused of committing a crime is presumed innocent as long as his guilt is not established by a court decision of final conviction.
