Ex-adviser to education minister faces corruption probe

The National Agency of Integrity (ANI) announced it had notified the National Anti-Corruption Directorate (DNA) over the case of Melania Mandas Vergu, a former adviser to the education minister. ANI inspectors hold that Ms. Vergu used various amounts of money from European funds in order to refurbish her apartment. ANI also accuses the former adviser of being in incompatibility position. Vergu was Education Minister Daniel Funeriu’s personal adviser between Dec. 2009 and June 2010, when she stepped down after information published in the press about improper use of funds. ANI’s incompatibility decision can be challenged in court. The ANI release also mentioned that inspectors learned Vergu had used nearly RON 500000 of a European funding to refurbish her apartment and on procurements not stipulated in the financing contract.
