According to these statements, the annual net income of the BNR Governor Mugur Isarescu increased between 2010 and 2015 from RON 595,000 to RON 1,144,069, the increase being caused by “external factors”.
BNR revealed to the public the annual net income corresponding to the years of 2009 to 2015 from the statements of assets of the Board in office at that time, based on the decision of the institution’s Board of Directors. The statements of assets can be seen on the BNR website, in the “Management and organization” section. BNR has informed the National Agency for Integrity about this decision, by an official letter.
