Two Financial Guard commissioners arrested for bribery

Two high-level commissioners working within the Financial Guard’s General Commissariat have been placed under 29-day preventive arrest, being charged with demanding and receiving RON 13,000 from the representatives of a Bucharest-based company in exchange for not fining that company for the irregularities discovered. The prosecutors of the National Anti-corruption Office (DNA) are investigating Robert-Paul Korner for bribe taking and Gheorghe Dobrin for being an accessory to bribe taking. Robert-Paul Korner and his colleague Gheorghe Dobrin have demanded and have received a total sum of RON 13,000 in exchange “for not taking the legal measures (issuing a RON 30,000-100,000 fine and confiscating the merchandize) against the irregularities discovered while checking a company’s book keeping,” a communiqué issued by the DNA on Thursday reads.

The anti-corruption prosecutors detained the two commissioners on Wednesday, with the Bucharest Court issuing two 29-day preventive arrest warrants on the same day. The prosecutors cooperated with officers from the Ministry of Administration and Internal Affairs’ General Anti-corruption Office and from the Romanian Police’s Special Operations Office.
