Intelligence officer indicted for influence peddling

Romanian Intelligence Agency (SRI) Major Enan Aifer was indicted by anticorruption prosecutors on charges of influence peddling, according to a press release from the National Anticorruption Directorate (DNA), quoted by Mediafax. According to the prosecutors, in 2009 and 2010, the major demanded and received a total of EUR 6,100 from a man, promising in return that she would help him and his wife obtain well-paid employment. Prosecutors began a probe against the SRI major after receiving a complaint from the man who gave the bribes. According to investigators, Aifer claimed that “through the contacts she has with the leadership of the Romanian Intelligence Agency and the Romanian Parliament, she can arrange for the plaintiff to be hired at a SRI unit in Bucharest and for the plaintiff’s wife to get a job at the Romanian Parliament.” The trial will be held at the Bucharest City Court. According to SRI’s press bureau, the intelligence agency fully cooperated with DNA prosecutors in the case. The major was suspended from her duties and awaits trial, according to the head of the SRI’s press bureau, Sorin Sava.
