Iasi judge probed for taking bribes

Judge Angela Ungureanu with the Civil Section of the Iasi Court of Law, who was held for allegedly taking a RON 2,500 bribe from a lawyer, was released Saturday evening, after the Superior Council of Magistracy (CSM) turned down the National Anti-Corruption Directorate (DNA) preventive arrest application. Judge Ungureanu was remanded Friday evening by DNA prosecutors, and was to appear before the Iasi Court of Appeal the next day, facing a 29-day preventive arrest ruling. A CSM release Saturday announced the judge was suspended from her position after a criminal investigation was opened into the case. According to a DNA release Saturday, the judge demanded EUR 500 from a lawyer, as a loan, in exchange for rushing the making of the layout of a ruling she passed in November of last year.
