DNA hears deputy head of IJP Prahova on suspicions of forcing confessions under threat (sources)
Deputy head of the Prahova Police County Inspectorate (IJP) Adrian Radulescu was brought on Monday morning to the premises of the Ploiesti National Anticorruption Directorate (DNA).
Judicial sources told Agerpres that Radulescu faces charges of abusive investigation after having obtained confessions under threat.
According to the cited sources, Adrian Radulescu, an officer with the Ploiesti branch of the Anticorruption General Directorate (DGA), who is currently filling the position of IJP Prahova deputy head, and Constantin Ispas – a police officer with the professional rank of chief commissioner and head of the DGA Prahova County Anticorruption Service, have used threats and promises to determine three persons to make denunciations against Prahova County Fraud Investigation Service police officers who handled a criminal case in the dockets of the Prosecution Office attached to the Prahova Court.
The denunciations obtained under threat by the two senior police officers resulted in two criminal cases registered with the DNA Central Office, in which DGA Ploiesti officers were assigned to investigate.
