Ex-president of CJ Mehedinti on house arrest

The former President of Mehedinti County Council, Adrian Duicu, has been released from remand, as the High Court of Cassation and Justice (ICCJ) passed a final decision to replace the measure with house confinement in his case. Having spent over six months on remand awaiting trial, Duicu walked out of Rahova Prison on Saturday, saying he was innocent and that he was able to prove that in court. ‘I am not guilty and I am sure time will prove that I am not’, Mediafax quotes Duicu as having said.
Adrian Duicu was released from remand after the High Court decided to replace the measure with house arrest in his case, as well as in the case of former Mehedinti Police chief Stefan Ponea, and businessman Constantin Popescu, both also under investigation in the same case.
DNA prosecuted Adrian Duicu for influence peddling, purchasing influence, instigation to offering bribe, granting unauthorised access to private information for obtaining undue benefits, instigation to abuse of power, as well as on two counts of use of influence and authority by a person who holds a leading position in a political party, in order to obtain undue benefits for another person.
