The prosecutor of the National Anticorruption Directorate (DNA) on Tuesday asked the Supreme Court to pronounce prison sentences against former ministers of Agriculture, Decebal Traian Remes and Ioan Avram Muresan, which are accused of corruption, saying that the facts prove the charges in these cases and impose jail terms. The Supreme Court finalised the debates in a case that has the two ex-ministers and businessman Gheorghe Ciorba accused of corruption acts. The lawyers of the three defendants explained that the pieces of evidence brought by prosecution are either illegal and should be removed from the case, or do not represent elements of any crime, so they asked judges to acquit their clients. The Supreme Court postponed the verdict in the trial for February 14. According to the act of accusation Remes, as minister of Agriculture, accepted and received EUR 15,000 and food products worth RON 1,500 from Gheorghe Ciorba, via Muresan.
