The Archbishop of Tomis Teodosie, accused of accepting bribes

The Archbishop of Tomis Teodosie turned up at the National Anticorruption Directorate (DNA) on Friday; the prosecutors there announced him he was under criminal investigation. The prelate is accused of accepting bribes and instigating to fraudulent misrepresentation in a case where DNA’s 2011 decision to drop charges was overturned, according to Agerpres. The archbishop allegedly demanded money and other benefits to help a man being ordained as a priest. Upon leaving the DNA offices, Archbishop Teodosie stated he was summoned for an older case; he confirmed it was from 2009. “[It was] for some things long time ago. (…) The new heads of DNA resumed the procedure, reopened [a case] (…) I have not been placed under any interdiction”, he said. The Archbishop’s counsel Maria Vasii mentioned that new elements previously not evaluated by the prosecutors have occurred in her client’s case.
