Marius Petcu to be sent in court

DNA prosecutors completed the investigation of former CNSLR-Fratia trade union leader Marius Petcu and will send the case in court, one of Petcu’s lawyers said Tuesday at the Supreme Court, while judges were examining a request to set him free pending the trial. According to the source, the file features the statements of seven witnesses, an expertise of the Predeal villa allegedly purchased by the union leader at a very low price – in fact a bribe – and the transcripts of phone conversations. On March 24, Marius Petcu was caught while taking a bribe of EUR 40,000 from businessman Petre Scrieciu, in exchange for awarding to his company the construction contract of a leisure centre in Snagov, belonging to trade unions. Until the closing of this newspaper issue, the court had not ruled over Petcu’s demand to be released from arrest.
