Fraud investigation officer caught red-handed

A sub-commissary at the Bucharest Fraud Investigation Service (SIF) was caught red-handed while providing confidential information to tax evaders subject to investigations conducted by the Organized Crime and Terrorism Directorate (DIICOT). The police official was picked up at the Otopeni Airport as he was about to embark on a Singapore flight. Mediafax quoted a DIICOT press release as saying that prosecutors had a 24-hour arrest warrant for the accused Adrian Constantin Dogarel for favouring perpetrators and supporting an organized crime group, and for being an accomplice to the crimes of tax evasion and money laundering. “The criminal activity by the accused obstructed the criminal investigation, as he tipped the other accused over the inquiry plan and wiretapping, and contributed to evidence being altered,” the source said. At DIICOT prosecutors’ proposal, the court remanded the accused in custody for 29 days. Chief Commissary Marius Oprea says the sub-commissary was about to emigrate to Singapore along with his family, and tender his resignation.
