Ten military cadres involved in the infamous Ciorogarla case were dealt prison sentences ranging between three and fifteen years. An 11th one was dealt a suspended six month-sentence. According to court rule, the cadres probed for theft, Ion Tudorache, Ion Petrica and Ionut Gagea were given the longest sentences, 14, 15 years respectively. The sentences can be appealed against. The weapon theft was discovered by authorities on January 28, 2009; it was the biggest such theft ever committed in a military unit in Romania. Over 60 weapons went missing from inventory, including several AKM automatic rifles, smaller calibre guns, bayonets, binoculars and submachine guns with carriage. The authorities stated, however, that no ammunition had been stolen.
