The National Integrity Agency (ANI) has asked the Supreme Court’s Prosecutor’s Office to investigate six MPs accused of conflict of interest, ANI announced in a communiqué quoted by Mediafax. The six MPs hired their own relatives within their Parliamentary offices, their relatives’ benefits totaling EUR 39,000. The investigated MPs are: Csilla-Maria Peto and Arpad Pal (UDMR), Ghervazen Longher (National Minorities), Marian Neacsu, Florin Costin Paslaru and Vasile Ghiorghe Gliga (PSD).
