Drug Agency chief indicted for taking bribes

The head of the National Drug Agency, Daniel Boda, was indicted on charges of having received EUR 5,000 in bribes to restore functioning authorisation for a medicine distribution company, Mediafax reports. Daniel Boda, son of political analyst Iosif Boda, will be tried alongside various officials of the company in question, Ioana Med Farm SRL, including its administrator Sandel Alexandrescu, a legal adviser and an accountant at the firm. Alexandrescu’s wife, former executive director with the Arges Public Health Department, is also to stand trial on charges of complicity to bribery. Prosecutors say that the company lost authorisation in September last year, when an inspection revealed severe irregularities in its activities. But later that same month, Boda received money from company officials in order to order a new check which was to falsely conclude that all irregularities had been addressed. The case will be tried by the Arges Tribunal.
