Craiova Mayor Solomon, suspended from duty

Craiova Mayor Antonie Solomon who is currently detained on corruption charges was yesterday suspended from duty, under an Arges court ruling, daily ‘Romania libera’ reports. Dolj Prefect Eugen Georgescu received the court’s verdict yesterday afternoon and will soon sign the order to suspend Solomon from office. “I will follow procedures although it’s not easy because Solomon is my friend and it’s very tough in situations like these,” Georgescu added.

Solomon was detained last week, on charges of taking bribe from a businessman in order to speed up authorisation procedures for a new hypermarket in Craiova. He denies all accusations.
