Military prosecutors have ordered on Wednesday the start of criminal prosecution against five gendarmes accused of dereliction of duty in the case that concerns the theft of four crates of warheads, Mediafax informs.
At the same time, ten persons underwent polygraph tests. After the results are communicated the prosecutors will examine them and establish their relevance for the case.
On July 16 four crates containing 80 artillery warheads ‘vanished’ from a train carriage that was taking them to Bulgaria. On July 18 three crates with 60 fuses were found intact in a dry well at the edge of the Chitila forest. The fourth crate, already opened, was found on a street in Chitila. 19 warheads were found in a sack hidden in the forest. The 80th warhead was found the next day in a well.
