Adrian Nastase’s sentence remains four years in prison


The Bucharest Court (TB) has decided yesterday that Adrian Nastase should serve four years in prison, without adding a penalty increase, following the merger of the sentences the former prime minister received in the “Zambaccian” and “Quality Trophy” cases. Through yesterday’s decision the court has basically decided to deduct from the four-year sentence the period that Nastase has already spent in jail, namely from June 20, 2012 to March 18, 2013, and from January 6 until today. At the same time, the Bucharest Court decided that after serving his sentence Nastase will have several interdictions for a period of five years. The decision is not final and can be attacked by prosecutors at the Bucharest Court of Appeals.
On April 28 the National Anticorruption Directorate (DNA) asked for a penalty increase of one year to the four-year sentence Adrian Nastase received, as a result of the merger of the two sentences in the “Quality Trophy” and “Zambaccian” cases.
