A inspector from the Moldovan Customs Service and an intermediary have been detained by the Anti-Corruption (CNA) officers and prosecutors in an inquest.
The detainees are suspected of having extorted 2,000 euros from a man in order not to start investigating a crime.
Earlier, the customs inspector caught the informant transporting diesel fuel with a bus, and asked for the bribe to let the crime unnoticed.
The customs inspector and the intermediary were caught yesterday red-handed, as they were receiving the last tranche of money from the plaintiff. The inspector started the bus and injured a CNA officer.
If found guilty, the two men may be jailed for 10 years.
