Court allows prosecutor Mihai Betelie to stay free while probed for corruption

The Bucharest Court of Appeals ruled Friday that prosecutor Mihai Betelie and the secretary general of the District 1 mayor’s office will stay free while they are probed for corruption, but ordered them not to leave Bucharest for 30 days. The National Anticorruption Directorate (DNA), which is probing the case, has already challenged the verdict at the Supreme Court. Mihai Betelie, suspended from the position of first-prosecutor of the Bucharest District 4 Tribunal, and Bogdan Grigorescu, secretary general of the mayor’s office of Bucharest District 1 were detained last Thursday, under the accusations of participating in the management of an environment company belonging to relatives, and asking a member of the Ilfov branch of a political party to facilitate their activity. The section for prosecutors of the Superior Council of Magistrates approved Wednesday a DNA request to search and detain Mihai Betelie, and Thursday issued an arrest warrant against him.
