The National Anti-corruption Directorate (DNA) Cluj prosecutors checked the Cluj-Napoca Municipality Tuesday morning in a case regarding the ticketing project initiated by the Municipality for the modernisation of the public transport ticket retail system. Cluj Municipality officials say the prosecutors wanted several documents that are currently being photocopied, without targeting any employee of the institution.
Cluj-Napoca Municipality spokeswoman Oana Buzatu told the press on Tuesday that DNA wanted to check various information regarding the implementation of the European ticketing project in partnership with the Public Transport Company (CTP), according to Mediafax.
According to her, the ticketing project includes a software component for the deployment of an electronic system and of a programme for the management of the entire CTP data base, as well as the hardware part including the equipment of all means of public transport with validating terminals technically matching the ticket dispensing system.
The DNA prosecutors searched the Cluj-Napoca Municipality also on 7 October in a case regarding the contracts awarded by the local administration for pest control and disinfection services to the Coral Impex company. At that time, the investigation also concerned the Alba Iulia, Sibiu, Targu Mures and Zalau Municipalities.
The Mayor of Cluj-Napoca is Emil Boc.
