Two thieves from ‘Theft of the century’ case sentenced



The Sector 3 Tribunal yesterday sentenced Radu Dogaru and Eugen Darie to prison terms without parole, for the theft of seven paintings with the estimated value of EUR 18 M from the Kunsthal Museum of Rotterdam, in October 2012, Mediafax reports. The court sentenced Radu Dogaru to 6 years and 8 months in prison for theft with very serious consequences and 3 years and 6 months for setting up a criminal group, plus another 4 years for nonobservance of the regime of weapons and ammunition. The terms were merged, leaving Dogaru with the longest term of 6 years and 8 months, to begin when the verdict will be declared final. Eugen Darie was condemned by the Sector 3 Tribunal to 6 years and 8 months for complicity to theft with very serious consequences and 3 years for setting up a criminal group, so he – too – will serve the longest sentence. The terms of Dogaru and Darie will be reduced with the time they already spent in detention. Judges also ruled that Dogaru and Darie will remain in arrest. Additionally, they must pay RON 6,000 as judiciary expenses. The verdict is not final and may be appealed in a higher court.
